Comment Inaccurate summary and poor form (Score 3, Informative) 425 425

The summary and comments often focus on what Jake Edge said where in fact, Edge is summarising what Jacob Kaplan-Moss said at a conference. The merits of the points made during the presentation can be discussed on their own but there seems to be a lot of vitriol aimed at Edge that has no basis in either fact or logic. Aside from an inaccurate summary, it's also sad to note that slashdot used a "subscriber link" feature which was meant to be used by a paid subscriber to share an article with a small number of people until it was free a week later. The feature was not intended for sharing with the entire audience of slashdot. That is just poor form.
