Problem, what problem, we don't have problems

  • From: Sean Donelan

While problems occur to everyone, the issue I've been fighting for
years are vendors who at first deny they are having problems when you
ask them about a problem.  But, I suspect the analysts are correct, there
is very little downside for a company to try to coverup problems.  They
can always apologize later, and it won't have any long-term effect.

  "Microsoft acknowledged in February that it had experienced problems
  with the servers that handle MSN Messenger, after denying for several
  days that problems existed. That outage came after a series of technical
  glitches and a hacker attack that prevented many people from accessing
  the company's Web site.

  The most recent glitch left many users frustrated, but some analysts
  doubted it would have any long-term effect on the company's efforts."
