Not that anyone cares but personally, I'm happy fyodor posted this and I'm forwarding it to anyone that I think might use download.com.  I think it's crap anyone changes anyone's code like that

No, he *does* want fruitful language - one that produces results.  I think you meant
some other word instead.

As far as "acting like a child", I'm reasonably sure that if CNet was doing the
same thing to the good name of your consulting company, you'd react similarly.

On the other hand, just being Fyodor is sufficient to get him taken seriously.
