This sums it up correctly. The trolls/shills still try to paint/portray all 
advocates here as "liars", in need of medication, having a gender complex, 
molesting children, having affairs with each other, etc.

Given that the United States government and the military use the same techniques 
(in China they are called "50 centers"), I doubt the FTC will be able to do much 
to correct it. Microsoft wants to be seen as professional whereas other forums 
become a jungle.

"Ideally, use of the competing technology becomes associated with mental 
deficiency, as in, "he believes in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and OS/2." 
Just keep rubbing it in, via the press, analysts, newsgroups, whatever. Make the 
complete failure of the competition's technology part of the mythology of the 
computer industry. We want to place selection pressure on those companies and 
individuals that show a genetic weakness for competitors' technologies, to make 
the industry increasingly resistant to such unhealthy strains, over time."
