Flamebait in GIS Monitor

Last week GIS Monitor published some fantastic flamebait by Manifold's product manager, Dimitri Rotow. Exploiting a flamboyant personality and the natural tensions between commercial and open source projects seems a bit irresponsible to me. Is this the new tone of the magazine? If so, I suggest a change of name to GIS Foodfight.

Howard Butler has a thoughtful and humorous rebuttal on his blog.
