The net effect of that big brainwashing effort is that some of the more credulous and less informed people now distrust a very smart analyst like Rob Enderle, very smart journalists like Maureen O'Gara and Dan Lyons, or a very smart author like Ed Bott,
You might be tempted to call Mueller a troll.
You might be tempted to call him FUD spreader.
And also someone who loves to spread innuendo.
'Say, have you stopped beating your wife?'
You know, that kind that straddles the line.
Many respected FLOSS activists and journalists HAVE met PJ.
SJVN even mentioned it in his article this week that he knows her.
So Mueller is calling SJVN and others LIARS.
Plain and simple.
When someone tells you they saw something and you still have doubts, you are calling them liars.
Which is great because that's what most people call Mueller but we have to do it sub rosa.
So be like him, dont call him a liar straight out, rather insinuate things about his character and motives the way he does. You can then defend yourself that it wasnt what you said, heck you could even act offended if someone brings it up. This also helps you keep the image of impartiality without stating your motives straight up.
Public speaking 101.
Listen to enough FUD and BS in your life (as a developer Ive developed a healthy aversion to our marketing dept BS) and you can spot it very easily.
Luckily, in FLOSS we had the chance to witness Lyons, O'Gara and Enderle in action in their hilarious prime.
Mueller is continuing their job. In more or less the same fashion.
Having him praise these 3 prince clowns of disinformation confirms it.
Its hard to find one FLOSS personality who hasnt figured Mueller out by now. Let's hope he goes back to video game marketing soon and rids our communities of his poisonous words and lies.
PS: Has anyone ever seen Mueller and Enderle in the same room together?
I got a fiver that its just old Rob in disguise.
