While I've met lawyers whose smile is best compared to that of a shark,
I'm starting to find the wholesale character assassination here very
tedious.  Have we actually heard that the lawyers involved have done
anything underhanded or shady in following the requests of whomever is
making these particular business decisions at Trend Micro?

Personally, I'm pleased as punch to being living in a country where the
rule of law [mostly] holds, there's a process [a bit flawed] for getting
laws changed, and we don't have Trend Micro deciding between sending
over the guys with big sticks to beat the crap out of Barracuda's CEO,
or having the local warlord they've been sucking up to do it for them.

OK, I'm outta here again.
