Anyone else unplug their system and turn their kinect to the wall?
Of course there's no guarantees that it won't continue to happen. Which is why Microsoft, in the last couple of weeks, has come out publicly and said they want the government's hands out of their pie.
But the thing is, Microsoft has done far more in an effort to publicly protect their consumers than Sony has. Which makes me just laugh when Sony fanboys use the Kinect as a reason to say "MS is big bad." Not saying this applies to you specifically, but all one needs to do is look at MS policy guidelines and public statements and Sony's.
MS: We will release your personal information to the government when we are required by law to do so.
Sony: We will release your personal information to the government when we feel that disclosure is warranted. Not even when we're required to, but rather, when we feel it's necessary.
It's like... what? This all takes less than ten minutes to read.
As far as backdoors being written into Microsoft products, every software developer has backdoor programming. It's why Sony's PSN was hacked and millions of their consumers names and credit card information was absconded with. Microsoft's backdoor programming was revealed because the NSA couldn't access it themselves, so they had to go to extraordinary lengths to get Microsoft to cough up the goods. And why Microsoft has publicy said since that they want no part of this practice.
I'm not saying that Microsoft's hands are clean in this. But to say that this is a MS only problem is just stupid. Every provider of online social services is complicit, and most have even more invasive privacy policies than MS does, and, further, have said less about them publicly to clarify than MS.

They knowingly send you 2 for free or you unjustly enriched yourself on their error?
As long as you inform them all is good, sometimes the audacity of people enriching themselves at the error of companies is hard to believe
