    Product placement and press release. :(

      This is significant news in an important sector of our industry. Your reflexive negativity is destructive to this website.

        I don’t think the personal attack was necessary here.

          This is significant news in an important sector of our industry.

          Sure, but unfortunately we have somewhat limited space and attention bandwidth here, and if we were to support posting every piece of significant news in important sectors of our industry, we’d find ourselves flooded. There is a great site with news for hackers–this sort of stuff is a great fit for that other site!

          Your reflexive negativity is destructive to this website.

          I’m sorry if that’s how this is perceived. I’ve gone to some lengths to do better in terms of negativity. Unfortunately, it’s hard to be positive when pointing out pathological community behaviors that have actively ruined and destroyed other sites.

            I think you’re somewhat right– I would have posted a more technical take like this one but didn’t see any posts about it at the time. After the other one was posted, I would have deleted this one if I was able to.
