I think he was 'just testing'. The negativity was a carry over from
previous threads on rgcc. He knows better now (I hope).

We've made it clear that programmers can talk about their programs;
including commercial aspects.

What I guess we don't want is the PR and marketing departments of large
companies boring us with PR babble. Nor with 'do you want to buy/trade
my copy of Chess Marvellous, only $20, or exchange for Chess Paranoia.

Well he can post one long story. How long it stays up for is another

And I'm quite sure that carefully drafted and amusing personal insult
will manage to creep in now and again.
