haha - yes, I blogged about this last year: http://stuart.amanzi.co.nz/2007/12/13/microsoft-bloggers-with-a-sense-of-humour/
I first thought about it while reading a Microsoft blog and he was poking fun at MS about it, which I thought was in good spirit. (although another humour-less MS employee commented on my blog pointing out that I was wrong and that it's not dangerous... sigh...)

"Are you sure you want to do this?" is still between you and danger, but it is a well spotted danger.

I usually use Safely Remove Hardware icon to eject my drives though.
