One of the things that makes blogging interesting is the ability to leave feedback, such as comments or trackbacks. Microsoft's Security Response Center (MSRC) also has a "blog".

Please note the use of double quotes around the word blog. While I have been subscribed to the "blog" for a long time, it did not strike me until recently that it does not allow any feedback to be submitted, even after signing up for an account.

One might wonder why.

As far as content goes: the "blog" seems to house nothing more that carefully screened posts that offer little or no insight into the workings of the center, nor does it provide much original thought.

With a few exceptions, the blog posts a summary on patch Tuesday and an announcement the Thursday before. Very rarely does it go much further than that.

Of all the vendor blogs that I subscribed to, this must be the least useful one.
