Thanks, Phil. Interesting read, but sad. The "last-ditch" part is (a little) understandable. The part about hurting competitors' reputations isn't. I'm sure karma will catch up with that guy.

Wow. I wonder whether it is true, and I also wonder how much it exaggerates what really happened and what the outcome was.

Good point Tim. The Reddit writer said, "I've had many years of making shit up online for fun. " So is this another made-up story?

It smells as if some of it is true.

How much? Who knows?
