ignorance is bliss..

..but it doesn’t change facts(*). sure, not all journalists do a good job. nevertheless let’s not ignore that only verifiable evidence counts when accusing renowned newspapers of bad journalism.

speaking about the ups and downs of journalism: encouraging people to do uptime comparisons (aka “schwanzlängenvergleiche” -> sorry, in german only ;) is pretty silly as a) you can’t compare apples with oranges and b) measuring uptimes of workstations/servers is very questionable unless there does not exist even a single known security hole in the system measured.

(*) such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, ..

(bugs/security holes in complex software are inevitable with today’s software engineering technologies. however, not to release patches for known security holes within a reasonable amount of time is ignominious.)
