Last week leaders of the Free Software Foundation realized that Microsoft had blocked the web donate.fsf.org , that the body uses for online donations. Corporate systems that made use of the Microsoft security programs thus preventing access to this site, as this system was considered an online gambling site.
The FSF has reacted and as indicated on its official blog have sent a request to Microsoft to delete the label of “Game” (gambling) with which it is currently rated Web grants and pass to qualify it with the label “Nonprofit” used for other websites of NGOs.
the FSF can not explain the error, and comment that “ will avoid for the time attributed this error to malice and wait for the correctness “. Of course, the situation is unique, especially because as they continue to comment on this blog, “ if the reputation of the Microsoft database can not tell the difference between a site for online game and audited and registered NGOs independently, public interest and was founded 30 years ago, it is clear that is causing more harm than good things to you and your business “.
