sorry, but I can't agree with that.

Will self-serving trolls contort what we say here to promote their
own agendas? Sure. What we want is the *truth* to be out there,
so when these trolls spew their FUD, the reality of the situation
is there for others to read, and understand, and grok.

At the very least, if what you say is true, we can claim the
high-ground. We should strive for that no matter what.
