Even if she doesn't misquote, I don't think anyone could possibly take her seriously; Groklaw reads like the hysterical rantings of a madwoman. I haven't read it in years, and I come back to it to read this:
Update 5: Thomas Vinje speaks out about Florian:
Thomas Vinje, the founder of the European Committee for Interoperable Systems (ECIS), which ranks IBM among its members, said that "Microsoft lies behind the antitrust complaints against IBM." Mueller can in turn be linked to Microsoft, he said, because he joined forces with Microsoft to oppose the Oracle-Sun deal, which was approved after an in-depth investigation by the Commission that ended in December. Vinje acted for Oracle in that case.
"They have learned how to play the game in Europe," Vinje said of Microsoft, which itself has been the target of antitrust regulators there. Microsoft has invested huge amounts in attacking its rivals, including Oracle and Google as well as IBM, in Brussels in recent years, he said.
Even without the hilarity-in-hindsight, that's pretty incredible (as in, not even remotely credible).
