    MSN does actually have a silverlight plugin on the main page... why do you think the pop-up is bogus? Why don't you just update your copy of silverlight and get it over with? :p

    That's a condescending attitude from the "Moderator". When is the last time you agreed to download a spontaneous "pop-up" from an unknown source?

    At least pdonofrio asked the question before downloading something s/he wasn't familiar with.

    Get off your high-horse

    But they didn't ask. They just decided it was bogus for some reason.

    Your first and only post in the forum, and you use it to criticize a moderator for offering a helpful suggestion. You offered no help to anyone. Why don't you go back where you came from and leave the forum to those who actually have something constructive to contribute.

    Also, mkrishnan did NOT suggest downloading anything from an "unknown source". MSN and Microsoft are quite well-known. mkrishnan suggested the OP update their copy of silverlight, not downloading something from an unknown source. Learn to read!
