This is nothing new. It is just getting more publicity.

There's nothing in the world wrong with liking something or touting its benefits, but when you unjustifiably defend it or insult something else simply because it's not what you'd use, you are a fanboy. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
I want to draw attention to the fact here, Chipp, that it is no secret their commercials have been highly
deceptive and prey on the general ignorance of the 'average joe.' This has earned, among the communities that realize what they are doing, a lot of bad publicity. It is only natural people will jump on them getting a share of what they tried to exploit to the verge of almost false advertising. (And at one point it was completely false advertising because they blatantly said there were 'no viruses', which everyone knows it near impossible.)
Now i am not going to spew some hate speach about them getting what they deserve, but now i hope the public will learn more about the situation and be better prepared for the future.Edited by Licht - 6/21/08 at 9:41am
