This one from a technical journalist who also sells chips -- no conflict of interest there then...

From: Christian Bell

No sir, I'm afraid you don't deserve a flame [eh? - Ed]. As a journalist for many years, on both technical and non-technical forums, I can assuredly say that I have NEVER in my life seen a worse piece of writing from anyone. Not only did you not do a bit of research, you misrepresented several "facts" that you had floating in your head and neglected several key public issues regarding the AMD vs. Intel debate.

I'm not going to send you massive amounts of propaganda for AMD, though I have been using and selling their chips, and only their chips, for the last three years. I do not care to "fight" you on this issue, because your opinions and "facts" to back up this absurd little capitalist-loving slur are damn lies, and I do not debate with people who haven't the time to even investigate the issue they're dying over. I might suggest that you take some writing and research classes at the local university and learn to research before writing.

In the mean time, to the editors of this magazine, I am immediately ceasing to ever read anything from your site again, and to visit with any of your sponsors, unless this fabrication of journalism is removed and a full apology by the editors is given for its allowance in what WAS otherwise a fine journal.

Good day and good riddance, lackeys. Notify me when the REAL writers arrive.
