Just seems like a bit of a leap to say much of the criticism in here is driven by rival plants.
At the time that I wrote that, most threads in this forum had a troll working, making ridiculous claims. Yes, there are real issues, some have been resolved, while others seem to linger. I am in no way complimenting Revolution on their launch. But I have seen a sustained effort (25 days and running) to make out and out lies about Lock. Everything from theft, to bans for speaking against them, even sexual harrasment.
This has two obvious effects:
1) It drives traffic to Merge.
2) It keeps the mods busy. The more time/attention Shane spends moderating or defending this subforum, the less time he has to actually respond to emails and resolve issues. That is the underlying motivation, the angle, if you will.
You can come to your own conclusions.
