The fact that a company is inconveniencing its customers for no good
reason should be a more than adequate goad for the company to fix its
problem. I don't see any reason to set the precedent of having "someone
from cygwin" do investigation when cygwin isn't doing anything wrong.
If Trend Micro doesn't want to fix the problem then presumably people
will take the next logical step.
