I have been with Geeks to Go for 9 Years, and have learned SO MUCH about the Internet, Malware and what it can cause for problems, and have accepted advice from everyone from Blair (Admin) on down - G2G Staff are knowledgeable and I know this, because we have the best staff around! I may be biased, but I cannot help but to come to the defense of ANY site that is providing reviews about antimalware or antivirus software - Bleeping Computer is one of these sites.
The staff of any website that provides help, whether it be technical, moral or other types of support should NOT be subject to legal action simply because BC decides that a piece of software that it reviews is not good. There are MANY pieces of software that have been used over the 9 years I have been a user and a former GeekU student - If someone told me that a piece of software was bad, and it came from one of my former instructors (like Metalica for example) I would LISTEN to him. There is a bond of TRUST that is formed when you become a member of an online Family - and there also is a RESPONSIBILITY to inform our userbase of programs that may or may not be good.
We have to support each other, and we have to allow for a reviewer to dissent, or say that a product is bad - Would anyone care to argue that CryptoLocker is a good thing? - Of course not, because it is a VIRUS/Malware, which can cause a lot of damage. Lawrence Abrams knows what the heck he is talking about - He and other sites (Like G2G, WTT,Besttechie, etc) were pioneers in the fight to remove malware. ScHwErV always used to say that "Learning Never Stops" and he is right.
Trying to sue an online resource that provides a service and has a negative opinion about a piece of software, and makes it known is as silly as Me being sued because I may say and PRINT ONLINE that I do not like Mcaffe or Norton Products - They SUCK, and in order to work, they "intwine" themselves all over the OS, and it becomes almost IMPOSSIBLE to remove all the way, without a lot of tweaks and removal tools.
I wish there was another way I could help them - I hope that they are able to weather the storm, and I hope that someone in the courts is smart enough to realize that this is a silly lawsuit - and can dismiss it with predjudice and therefore protect the free speech rights of all forums and tech sites.
