Lol I wasn't being picky, just trying to be precise/get the precise facts. If someone wants to attempt to destroy their HDD it's their problem; I on the other hand just wanted to know which source of information to trust.
And in that respect it seems neither Wikipedia nor PCguide tells the whole story/is 100% correct.
How would you like to be called picky when you say Wikipedia states partly incorrect things, "but that isn't surprising considering how much false and misleading information is on Wikipedia", it has a lot of good things too, right ?
I just wanted to be precise, and it seems both sites aren't, and I'm sure you agree with this statement.
