HP the Victim of Enterprising Greenpeace Stunt 36

An anonymous reader writes "Employees at Hewlett-Packard in Palo Alto received a shock this morning as they checked their voicemail and found that each and every one of them had received a message from Captain James T. Kirk, AKA William 'The Shat' Shatner, upbraiding the company for abandoning their plans to remove toxins from its hardware. The organization behind this stunt was Greenpeace, who, to underline their point, scaled the building and painted 'Hazardous Products' on the roof with toxin-free paint."

  • Just mistook sarcastic response to troll as a troll. That will teach me never to mod while browsing above -1.
  • Hey Greenpeace, guess what, the paint thinner and sealant they're going to use to undo your vandalism is toxic!
