Sweden withdraws vote That these things are each explained in their turn, the withdrawal as a timing issue, that MS says the email was a mistake (and what does that really mean?) does not lessen the feeling among people of a cynical cast of mine, such as myself, that improprieties occurred. I think that Rick saying each of these things in turn is no problem is probably explainable by the simple fact that he has been castigated by anti-ms forces on this issue and perhaps is reflexively likely to think the anti-ms side is wrong.
