And since I wrestled in High School
I am going to once again get dirty with the Pig. In writing that last post where I wrote about OS, I read some more of the creating passionate users blog and came across a great post. Dmitri (and Manifold as his employer) need to read this post. I am now officially hesitant to use Manifold because of the outrageous statments and wrong information Dmitri posted in his responses. If you don’t know what you are talking about then it is better to say nothing. I am not criticizing Manifold software, since I have never used it, I am criticizing their refusal to muzzle Dmitri and to act somewhat professional on their website, which is probably written by Dmitri as well. Even Manifold users who would like to promote the software find him and the website to be a problem.
At first I thought it was kinda funny but then reading more on the web site and his comments I started to get annoyed.
I have met people who make stuff up about all the cool things they have done in their life – and when they keep going and going your “smack talk meter” ™ starts to go off. Dmitri and the website make so many claims without any proof to back it up. And since I can’t get a demo version there is no way for me to see how much smack is flying around so it all becomes unbelievable.
Who knows if I will use Manifold, but if I do it will be in spite of Dmitri and the web site.
By the way Doug, you receive little to no points for staying anonymous in the debate with Dmitri. It is awfully easy to criticize sitting behind an anonymous moniker.
