today I recognized that LS has removed all stuff from the Lavasoft blog. Interestingly all of my blog entries (e.g. this one) have been cleaned up including the one to which I am referring here. Surely just a mistake or maybe because of “regular” cleaning. The funny thing is, that in the forums my blog entries had created some positive feedback – will the inverse hold now that the blog entries have gone?!?!
Also funny that a laughable forum entry such as this one outlives some professional comments on real security-related topics. That sheds some light again on LS way to handle issues.
Frankly speaking this leaves me a little grumpy now, since I will have to search my big harddrive for the screenshot I made at that time. Also it causes stress because I will have to keep my readers up-to-date now
But well, some bad guys are also claiming that the holocaust never took place, so “changing history” by removing some blog entries cannot be too bad, right? I’ll keep you updated …
Now I know what they (i.e. LS) are up to. Other people are glad their blog gets linked to, not so LS. Neither do they provide trackbacks (which I can understand in the light of trackback spam) nor do they provide article links anymore (they did in their WordPress blog before). This of course makes it a lot easier to remove old “inconvenient” content at will. Also it makes it harder for people from outside to link to an article – at least a link would be a hint to the existence of an article. Now there exists no such link. But well, this is in full compliance with what I was told when I started requesting agreements to be written down because previous agreements weren’t sticked to and things had been changed afterwards: “We do not do such things here at LS.” … well, true – written stuff means proof. Now who would want proof of previous agreements to disappear??? I leave it to the common sense of my readers to find an answer to this. Although Blaise Pascal was correctly stating that common sense isn’t that common
