So I click on the "feedback" link to let them know that I am not pleased (in a nice way) and the email bounces back saying it was rejected because it looked like "spam". Interesting, so I resend the message but changed the one mention of "Linux" to "L-i-n-u-x" and the one mention of "Firefox" to "F-i-r-e-f-o-x" and it seemed to go through just fine. These guys really like to play nice. Of course all this stuff is surely Microsoft's doing because Microsoft's logos are all over the place. Here's the email I sent:
Note the bounce message and where it came from:From: xxxxxx <firstname.lastname@example.org>

It would be nice to be able to watch the video on your site but I do
not use a Macintosh or Windows. I have no problem watching video on
virtually any other site on the Internet using L-i-n-u-x and
F-i-r-e-f-o-x but you want to force me to install some platform
dependent software to watch your video. It would be nice if you could
provide your video in a standard format that everyone can watch. I
suppose next you are going to tell me I need to have an RCA television
to watch the NBC channel.
Apparently "Linux" and "Firefox" are obscene language, graphics, or spam to Microsoft. :) I was able to find a torrent and download the event I wanted to watch. It wasn't in English but at least I got to see the event, no thanks to NBC and Microsoft.From: MAILER-DAEMON
