The Power of One Infographic

Subject: You are the worst reporter I have ever seen in my entire life

Right. You're gonna get flamed here, and I'm serious. I have never been so pissed off with a member of the media as I have with you, and your stupid organisation. In future, check your fucking references before you post a story, like the one about Microsoft dropping GL. They're not. They're just not shipping IHV drivers with it -- and you're also getting Fahrenheit confused with GL. They're different fucking entitities. As a result, I've made plans which are very hard for me to correct at this time, and I'm half-tempted to sue your asses off. I am definately going to send a message to Microsoft encouraging them to do so for libel and slander. I demand that you post an official apology on the front of your site, for all of those people who you have misled and confused the hell out of. You're gonna get a LOT of heat over this one, and you bunch of pricks deserve it for posting stupid incorrect fucking rubbish on your goddamn site. Please, do yourselves a favour. Go learn proper reporting techniques, or take a tip from Slashdot, or just go and shoot yourselves. Keep this up and I don't know how I'll do it but I'll make you pay.

Yours,
