So there's something in that news article that "somebody" requested
Yahoo to block.
"I wonder how Yahoo's filter works", asked Best, curiously.
Let's try an experiment, shall we?
Maybe if we add a few characters here and there, it might screw-up
the filter from well, filtering, right?
And folks in this Great Freedom of Speech Country of Ours could read it.
So let's add a few random $ characters here and there and see what happens.
Here's yet another attempt to post that apparently blocked story.
Well actually, it's about the 10th attempt, but who's counting.
The Windows $8 Sales Data Is In, And It's Bad $ News For Micro$soft

"NP$D res$earch published some bad news for Micro$soft yesterday. Despite releasing an entirely new operating system on October 22 of this year, Windows PC sales $shrank 21 percent between 10/21 and 11/17 vers$us the same period last year.
Windows 8 tablet sales during that period were "almost non$existent" – just 1 percent of all Windows 8 $sales.
“It hasn’t made the market any worse, but it hasn’t stimulated things either,” Stephen Bak$er, an analyst at NP$D, told The New York $Times. “It hasn’t provided the impetus to sales everybody hoped for.”
Yesterday, we reported other bad news: Asu$s CFO Dav$id Cha$ng's comment that "demand for Windows 8 is not that good right now."
Microsoft cut its order of Sur$face tablets for the year to two million units, down from four million.
This is a very sca$ry time for Microsoft."
