    you have already made your position on TDS-3 well know. Mission accomplished. I don't think anyone needs any further clarification on that.

    You have have also made you position on the mods and admins here well known. Mission accomplished. I don't think anyone needs clarifcation on that either.

    Repeatedly dragging this into every thread is seen as an intent to turn this board in to another mudslinger, and although begrudgingly, I have to admit you have done an excellent job of it. Mission accomplished

    What next?

    Wayne liked the results did he? shame shame. I still don't see how this means the tester was biased. Show me proof Wayne paid him or something. Who wouldn't quote something that someone said good about their product? Even if they had never met or spoken this would happen.

    Slackware.org doesn't know me but if I did a test that showed they were the most secure OS available, they might link to it. If I arrived at that conclusion on my own, am I biased?

    You can say a lot of things about Eric Howes' antitrojan test,  but you can't possibly call it partial.

    And if the outcome of this independent test happens to be favorable to TDS -3, what on earth is wrong with Wayne referring to it?

    You appear to see signs of conspiracy everywhere...

    Yes I see a conspiracy, cause people where talking about another test, that didn't favor TDS-3, so Wayne popped in the thread and offered the above to show TDS-3 was on top, and to discredit the other test which is here. http://www.pcflank.com/art17d.htm

    He also has this link on the diamond CS homepage.   These are independant tests that put his product in a good light, you can't blame a guy for advertising the strengh of his product.

    At one time I would have agreed with you, but not as things have been going, I just don't trust this company anymore nor their supporters. I know some of this companies supporters are good people, but they are hard to find as of late.

    Due to all the negative posts by this companies' supporters, it's really hard to believe anyone or any post showing TDS-3, in the lime light, I used to recommend TDS-3, and had trust in them, not any more.

    So I also doubt any comparison chart they favor, and it is unfair to the author of the test, cause he may not be involved with TDS-3, but because of all that's happened, I wont just take his word for it either.

    Vampirefo,

    You have made your view on TDS quite clear by now.

    Unless you do have something new to add, withold from commenting all over this board one and the same message.

    regards.
