A bit OT but then almost all discussion on this issue has been unrelated OT so far. I thought this was a war being waged on malware. Personally, I have no use for soldiers who are cowards. If you're too cowardly to address an issue with or without merit, then perhaps the leadership here is worthless. Not at all what I expected to see.
What I have a prob with is folks who run out of reasonable debate on a subject and turn to personal attacks because they have no real contribution on the issue. Unfortunately, the world is full of weak minds who will try to discredit someone falsely just because they can't find any other way to deal with things they don't want to hear.
As a user and as someone trying to find common sense on the internet, fcukdat has every right in the world to question policy played out in any subject he wishes...most particularly any subject that affects him personally and the subject of how this greater community(which fcukdat is a member) sets policy and affects us all is definitely a legit concern for anyone.
I haven't posted at SpywareBeware since the old first board 3-4 yrs ago. I guess that makes any opinion I may have invalid also.
I don't have any issue here in this thread but after reading all the OT comments here, I do have some of my own to make.
As someone who has heard the 'why are you picking on poor LS?' many times, I would ask; How does the truth hurt?
I myself have pulled back from telling folks the truth on occassion because of fear of damaging the community itself. Well the community is quite strong now(thx in large part to ASAP) and there are litterally dozens of adequate anti-malware products to choose from now.
I don't personally intend to ever stop letting folks know what I see. LS & PMK have both tried to shut me up before...it just isn't going to happen.
I always have to wonder about motivation when I see folks who are scared to address or look for the truth.
I can't speak for anyone else but if someone wants to make me quiet, it's simple to do...just proove me wrong. May I suggest that to quiet fcukdat, you might try addressing his issue instead of crying about the dirt left on LS whenever their ethics and policies are questioned.
