The Q&A portion included comments by the Rev. Ken Hutcherson of Antioch Bible Church, who previously threatened a boycott of Microsoft in response to the company's support of workplace-related gay-rights legislation. He cited past discussions with Microsoft executives and alluded to the possibility of further action against the company, saying he is "probably one of the worst nightmares that this corporation can have."
Later, shareholder Lonnie Lusardo asked what shareholders could do to support the company in opposition to Hutcherson. Brad Smith, Microsoft's general counsel, cited shareholders' previous support of the company diversity policy.
