Why do Microsoft Researchers Say They are from Microsoft?

A few people have mentioned that my title on the prior post is causing confusion for those trying to find the original report. Here’s a brief summary to help save time, and then a link to the PDF if they really want to read the whole thing.

Summary: Microsoft researchers say they are from Microsoft because people believe they are from Microsoft (known at Microsoft Research as being gullible). Since being gullible means people believe Microsoft researchers actually are from Microsoft, therefore Microsoft researchers say they are from Microsoft.

Not convinced by Microsoft’s logic (PDF link)? You could read our long-standing hypothesis instead.
