Let's say that you are a big organization and you are going to name your new cool cross platform UI framework.

The chosen name conflicts with another open source framework for the same purpose.

1. You did not perform a web search before naming

2. You did, you found it, and said "who cares?"

Obviously this escalated (too) quickly in the comments, but I find Microsoft's handling of the issue to be particularly appalling 🙄

Flagging even constructive criticism & discussions as off-topic/spam is not cool.

@fribbledom I On top of that, I may jump to conclusions too early, but: reading the comments so far, I find the kde-maui pro comments as very mature and bearing valid arguments, in contrast with the poor quality of many of the ms pro comments.

@dimitrisk @fribbledom I mean, one would think that they learned from the gvfs disaster a few months ago, but doesn't seem like that's the case…

@sheogorath Probably, if you are too big you can't "learn your lesson"; you can only give lessons...

@dimitrisk @fribbledom To be fair the constructive comments they have marked as off-topic were responses to Dan Siegel.

The most offputting thing to me about it was the response from MS that "This has been through legal review". My dude, this is not about legalities.

@carl @dimitrisk @fribbledom Ahh wait no, I think I'm misreading. It's showing the "now" date marker where in the timeline we are... Which is during the period of time when the trademark is registered.
