I did, and I have. But I only get to see the page *after* MS has 
disabled it.

I have clients asking "Why?". They are not complaining, just asking how 
it works, they are glad we are disabling suspected fraud. I would like 
to say what the system is looking for and provide a valid example in 
before and after states.

The bottom line, it works, and works well. But I don't want to sound 
stooopid because I can't explain how it works with confidence.


Three years now I've asked Google why they don't have a
logo change for Memorial Day. Why do they choose to do logos
for other non-international holidays, but nothing for

Maybe they forgot who made that choice possible.
