Comical but sad. In essence they do it to trash the group, just
as it is stated in:
If COLA were a physical location like a building where those who
would advocate the growth of the Linux operating systems and the
Linux community gather, the anti-Linux propagandists would be
raiding that building. They would be vandalizing the building,
painting graffiti on the walls, defecating and urinating on the
floors and furniture, breaking down the doors, setting fire to
the building and physically assaulting the resident Linux
advocates and the visitors who happen to be in the building at
the time of the raid.
COLA is not a physical location, so they have had to adapt their
methods so that they can do an on-line version of what was
described in the prior paragraph. A key method used by anti-Linux
propagandist to attack Linux, its users, sysadmins, developers,
advocates and those who have come to COLA to lean about Linux. is
a form of propaganda known as disinformation. One of their
favorite version of disinformation is known as FUD.
It smacks of:
'Use ... the Internet, etc. to heighten the impression that the
enemy is desperate, demoralized, defeated, ... associated with
mental deficiency, as in, "he believes in Santa Claus, the Easter
Bunny". Just keep rubbing it in, via the ... newsgroups, ... make
the complete failure of the competition's technology part of the
mythology of the computer industry.'
