This morning I got an email from Microsoft informing me that have been presented the Microsoft MVP award for Windows Azure. It is a great feeling to see my contributions to the community recognised directly by Microsoft.

My favourite part of the introductory email was the disclaimer: “The purpose of this paragraph is to relieve Microsoft Corporation and its affiliates of any and all liability arising out of any injury caused as a result of use or mis-use of our products contained in this package… In no event will Microsoft be liable to anyone for any damages or injury caused by the acceptance of this prize, or by its misuse or improper use, or action taken by user…

It sounds like the welcome package they are sending in the mail is rather dangerous!
