I think we've understood this very well here, for a very long time
indeed.  It's quite fascinating to note that in spite of all of the fud,
marketing, astroturfing, press releases, expensive dinners, visits from
senior execs, purchased news sites, manupilated magazines, bullied
judges, bunged election campaigns and so on, that the truth *still*
comes through in the end.
