Journal Dave21212's Journal: Radicati Group Employee Caught "Astroturfing"

No, it's not an episode of "When Analysts Attack" it's a real-life espisode of a dubious report, a backlash, and some ethically questionable blogging, all captured by the clever members of the Domino community ! eWeek's Sean Gallagher notes, " There's been a bit of fun happening over at Ed Brill's blog. And it's spilling over to his work blog. Ed has had a long career at Lotus and IBM--he's been the Notes/Domino brand manager, and now he's the head of worldwide Notes/Domino sales. His personal weblog became the target of some anonymous drive-by sniping(read the comments) after he publicly questioned the fairness of a report by the Radicati Group. Then, lo and behold, it turned out that the comments had been posted from an IP address at Radicati Group." and "Sara Radicati admits that one of her employees, without her permission, posted some comments on some blogs."
