MVP Buzz: Microsoft Won't Name Microsoft Dynamics MVPs for April 2013, Citing Privacy

April 16 2013

Each quarter Microsoft updates its MVP rolls by adding new MVPs, as well as renewing and "not-renewing" those in the program for the past year.  MVP status is a big deal; of the many tens of thousands of Microsoft professionals in the world, only a tiny fraction are ever recognized with the award, which requires a range of accomplishments including community participation, demonstrated expertise, and a strong level of community support for your efforts.

Rhoda Bernstein D&B Isn't the whole purpose of an award to be publicly recognized? Citing privacy is mis-placed. (I was going to say "lame", but I am trying to be more politically correct as I get older.) We are not talking about someone's personal health status or how much they earn or who they are in a relationship with. We are talking about a professional accomplishment that historically has been used to further one's professional standing and/or amplify their company's status by association. Call me jaded, but why have an award and keep the winners a secret? If there are bona fide legal privacy issues, then give recipients the ability to opt out of public announcements. My 2 cents. - Rhoda
