While not exactly on the same topic we were discussing, I fail to see
what's wrong with my question, and you didn't explain either.
I'm not sure what the point of arguing about it anymore (other than
the fact there's not much to talk about), or even really what we're
arguing about any more, but I will say this:
Many perceive critics of Roy as "wintrolls" because they are highly
critical of articles posted by Roy about Microsoft. They are seen as
defending the company. My take is that articles on Microsoft posted by
Roy are his least objective posts, most likely to be misleading, most
likely to contain errors, and most likely to be repeated incessantly.
There isn't some cabal of Microsoft funded posters here to discredit
Roy (by pointing out *real* problems with his posts no less). It's a
group of people who will point out mistakes by anyone. Roy posts more
than anyone, posts more about Microsoft than anyone, and makes more
erroneous posts about Microsoft than anyone, so it just makes it seem
like Roy is being targeted and Microsoft defended more. If Roy wrote
his Microsoft posts more like he writes his Linux posts, or god forbid
correct his mistakes the next go around on his [News] deluge, then I
don't think we would be having this discussion.
