Project Camelot's Kerry Cassidy receives a decidedly-non-commital response from Microsoft re: the arrest of Bill Gates
So, she wrote an email to Microsoft's PR Department to enquire whether their founder had indeed been arrested or not, and waited, expecting no response.
Here's a sample from the decidedly-non-commital reply she finally received:
Thank you for your patience as I looked into your request. I have connected with my colleagues and unfortunately we are unable to accommodate your request at this time. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Should you need attribution, please attribute to a Microsoft spokesperson.
So, what the fuck does that mean?
Either Microsoft can't understand the question, "Has Bill Gates been arrested or not?" or this is an A.I. or automated pro-forma reponse they send out to all such kook-mails or they really can't say i.e. aren't allowed to disclose at this time? And the real funny thing is, Microsoft don't need to adopt this peculiar holding-pattern stance. They could just deny everything like corporations always do. But no, can neither confirm nor deny.
