This spurred a flurry of rumours about the NSA building backdoors into Windows 7, but Microsoft has today categorically denied these claims.

No, we remember - It's just the people who understand it never took issue out of "oh noes, there's a 128 byte key in one DLL used for export licensing".

Only the tin-foil hat wearing fringe whacko conspiracy nutjob paranoids take this type of sensationalist reporting seriously. File this alongside your "911 truthers", Who really killed JFK, or how 911 and it's primary architect were predicted on our currency.

Wow, I had no idea that the Girl Scouts are responsible for the crop circle phenomenon.
Few people do, few even think to ask the question.
