Well, it has been a very generous gift, but I agree. They are not going to make any new friends, but certainly a few more enemies.
MSDN will continue, which I have, for the present time. But, now in my eightieth year on Planet Earth, I am giving thought to making a departure from the field of forums. This might/could involve, giving up MVP status, which at the moment includes an MSDN subscription. But who knows? It looks like MS are tightening their belts. Maybe they will withdraw that perq also!
