Sterker nog het is gewoon een ruzietje tussen een paar figuren dat via de site werd uitgevochten.

""IF YOU WONDER where your post count has gone or why half of our hacks on the boards or site are still not working or even why Neowin has been warped back to Feb 13th you might want to ask Andrew G. Tereschenko (firstname.lastname@example.org) at TAG Software Research Lab, Odessa, Ukraine.
He seems to be mass mailing websites claiming a personal victory against Neowin for reporting us for breaking NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) that we haven't signed. It seems Microsofts contracted Anti-Piracy team did find something they could email our Server provider for what followed was icing on the cake for Andrew G. Tereschenko.
Microsoft have pledged their support for Neowin and as I stated earlier an investigation into the chain of events that started as early as March 4th is still on-going. Andrew G. Tereschenko had been reported by me to Microsoft UK after he continually mailed and then badgered me claiming credit for our earlier Microsoft Windows 2003 Professional? post on Neowin (that was lost along with the SQL database). He believes we copied his findings over from a newsgroup I have no access to. I will following up my earlier complaint to the Microsoft Press Relations Team at email@example.com and Microsoft Press Centre UK.
My emails to Microsoft will probably be side-tracked since Andrew fixed a File transfer bug back in August 2002, that seemed to of secured him a place in Microsofts good books (despite his attitude against a site that actively supports Microsoft). You can see his claim to Microsoft fame here: Multiple security vulnerabilities inside Microsoft File Transfer Manager ActiveX control (<4.0) [buffer overflow, arbitrary file upload/download]
I won't relay my personal thoughts about this guy, but here folks is proof of what happens when someone gets a stick up their arse about something. Everyone suffers.

I would like to tell a success story how Microsoft prosecuted www.NeoWin.net
You probably remember problem then NeoWin posted a news article
based directly on my post in this _private_ newsgroup.
The newsarticle itself was not a NDA protected - but I'm 99% sure
that it was obtained from NDA protected newsgroup (this one).
I've talked a little bit with a NeoBond (owner of NeoWin) and
in one of his emails he told me:
"I contacted Microsoft on this issue, they will take it from here.
and also he was doing a blackmailing on me:
"ok, so you want me to forward this to Microsoft (the contact in BetaPlace, because I also participate in Microsoft Betas) asking
there what they think of you wanting to be sourced for information you believe is covered under NDA. Is that what you want? If you
would be so kind as to give me your Beta ID or I can let them look up your name."
I've preffered to stop talking with him and contacted Microsoft.
I've used a firstname.lastname@example.org email and got:

te kinderachtig voor woorden maar gezien de kop van dit artikel lijkt het me verstandig deze iets te nuanceren.
