Working against you

One of the biggest issues I run into as a community evangelist is that every time I seem to make major progress with the community, something happens in the company at large that sets back that progress pretty significantly. It seems like a constant ebb and flow of two steps forward, one step back. .. or one step forward, three steps back. Depends on the day.

I’ll be Scoble feels the same way when he’s seeing stuff like this:

The MacSlash Mac community site has been the subject of legal threats from Microsoft following the posting of an anonymous comment on the site which included the registration number for Windows Server 2003.

Remarkably, instead of contacting the site, Microsoft contacted MacSlash?s web host, Digital Forest with a take down notice for the entire site.

Fortunately, Digital Forest responded with a response which is best surmised as ?go jump”.
