Yeah, this was pretty outrageous. I seem to recall they threatened S&P with something similar - not even bothering to hide that the threat was in direct response to a rating downgrade.

Sad that half the population don't know know all this and couldn't care less if you told them.
They are more concerned with outrages on "Lost" or "Survivor" or "American Idol" or whatever they call it nowadays.
