Putting profit before principle

Microsoft's attitude to the Chinese government is shameful from a company that declares its primary mission is to "help people and businesses throughout the world realize their full potential."

How exactly is pulling the blog of someone who has committed no crime helping them achieve their potential? The case of Zhoa Jing shows instead the company is willing to sacrifice its customers as the prioce of placating the Chinese government.

Microsoft isn't alone in this. Google in
Chinawon't allow search terms that the Chinese government doesn’t like, Yahoo hands over account details for people who have irritated the powerful and Cisco and Websense are actively helping build the great firewall of China
