It seemed like they didn't even do any research into what actually happened.

It's why I suggested them from the beginning.
One of the few sites that actually bother to understand what they're writing about.

Congrats Dan, DD/DDF is on a roll!

On a side note, anyone lose the use of their main phone number via GV? Nix that, I see it was asked already.

The various sites' headlines in covering such stories (whether it's a Google, Apple, or Facebook story) shows you their bias.

Dan didn't tell anybody to do anything, there weren't any posts on DDMS about this at all.
