    Yeah, I saw them all over the place.

    I kept wondering how legal that could be... Hehehehe.

    Anyways, There was this AOL 8.O release festival going on at Lincoln Center (where I work) with AOL balloons and free stuff all over the place (it was kind of cool, though I really dislike AOL) and then suddenly all these people dressed like purple butterflies on Rollerblades showed up! MSN was crashing the AOL party! It was hillarious, all the MSN butterflies picketing and giving out THEIR free stuff, making all the AOL people really upset.

    It's so comforting to know that our country has its priorities straight. I mean, who cares about peace in the Middle East? Certainly it's more importanrt t send a bunch of butterflies to invade an ISP party...

    Horse hockey! I went searching the forums for Microsoft, butterflies and New York before I post this and came up with nothing found - otherwise I wouldn't have posted an article that came out on Saturday. Sorry. :(

    This is the what....2nd time in a month or so that M$ gets caught doing something stupid along the lines of advertising?

    First the fake switcher ad....now the butterflies......I wonder if theres a cryptic message hidden within?
