Macthorpe's Journal: Slashdot Myth #1: No, I'm Not Paid To Say This 1

Journal by Macthorpe

Figured it would be about time that I started using the journal area, so I thought I would start by taking my time to debunk some of the favoured Slashdot myths. So, without further ado, I present Myth #1:

No, I am not paid to defend Microsoft.

Really, this one shouldn't need any further explanation, but apparently this is really hard to grasp for people. If you think I'm defending Microsoft, it's because you or someone else has spouted one of the long list of false statements that people assume about them and I'm correcting you. I prefer truth over lies, and I have done the same for Linux and Apple.

I encourage anybody and everybody to fact-check what people say. Maybe a little knowledge will go a long way.

    Twitter doesn't like you, but that says more about you than him (and in a positive sense for you).

    A most insightful statement.
