Dear Microsoft: fsf.org is not a "gambling site"

Filed under
Microsoft
OSS
Web

Last week, it was brought to our attention that our primary online donation form at donate.fsf.org was being blocked by corporate systems that use a Microsoft "network security" program. It seems Microsoft has labeled us as a "gambling site." As a result, many people were unable to make donations.

I have submitted a correction, asking that they remove the "Gambling" label and instead list us in their "Non-Profit/Advocacy/NGO" category.

We will avoid attributing this error to malice just yet, and wait for their correction. I will update this post if and when they respond to us.

Rest here
