Re: [News] [Rival] Guardian Editor on the (Likely) Imminent Death of Microsoft Zune

Verily I say unto thee, that Roy Schestowitz spake thusly:

And how exactly does a post to an unmoderated Newsgroup preclude the
"opportunity for answer or debate"?

It also subsequently exposes those who feel uncomfortable about these
discussions, and thus their true motives.

As the biggest threat to Linux (and everything else in IT), discussions
about Microsoft are extremely pertinent to the charter of considering
the "Benefits of Linux compared to other operating systems".

These are discussions that everyone is free to participate in, or
ignore, at their discretion - even "Sermo". Equally, everyone is free to
participate in or ignore "Sermo's" contribution to that discussion,
assuming he has any, beyond dictating that we shouldn't have it.
