This is silly. Regardless of what we think about the article (I personally 
thought it had some flaws to be sure) or the person writing it, the man has 
a right to his opinion, and ZDNet should certainly not be put down for 
having a range of opinions on the web site. 

Lets try to not come across as aggressive to everyone that has a different 
view, regardless what we think of that view. Otherwise, we just look 
uncompromising, fanatical, dictatorial, and above all, people not to be 
sensibly and professionally dealt with.
