UPDATE: I have heard back from Mr. Ormandy. He was very polite but has stated that he would prefer to let the issue rest than answer anymore questions. Since I am unable to present his side of the argument, even if I were to hear comment back from Microsoft, I would feel it impossible to present an unbiased view here. therefore I shall just let it drop. Perhaps that is really what we all just need to do. If you think he was right, then silently cheer him on, if you think he was wrong admit that maybe he made a mistake, and move on.
