I like this a whole lot better. It's more K5 than /., don't you think?
Anyway, the Judge cannot be blamed for what it is he's saying. Remember, Judge Jackson was actually pro-Microsoft at first, but after having dealt with the Microsoft bullshit for months, he's sick of it. Would any judge in a corresponding individual case be blamed? If the lawyers for a murder trial defendant had the bright idea of faking a security camera video, could the Judge be excused for insulting the defense's council? Of course not.
The dead hand of Asimov's mass psychology wins every time.
