It certainly made me wonder about forgeries. I mean, Erik makes some
silly statements from time to time, but this stuff is wierd. I'd expect
it from DFS, FF, or mayb Bailo, but I would have thought Erik a little
more rational than that.
We all know, despite the wintrolls denying it, that Roys posts are
making it harder for them to spread their FUD, I won't go into exactly
how it does that since at least one of the wintrolls hasn't figured it
out yet, but it is happening.
Erics obvious way to counter that would be to post an equal number of
articles with the oposite spin, i.e. pro-windows/anti-linux. For one
reason or another he hasn't done that, probably can't find enough
articles to do the job.
So he's going for the riskier strategy of simply making more posts than
Roy, then he can turn around and say that Roys news posts aren't
drowning anybody out and therefore should be stopped.
Or he may simply be trying to devalue the news posts by ensuring there
is a worthless reply to each one.
Either way, it's a sign of desperation, for months now this group has
been filled with positive linux articles (and unfotunately negative
windows ones) with only a few FUD posts showing up here and there. Take
a look at google groups for for January this year, before Roy started
his news posts, at least 50% of threads were started by trolls.
