A clear deception written by TSCOG


July 18, 2006

I know you're shocked, simply shocked. I am.

Working off a post to alt.os.linux.caldera by Jonathan Sizz, I looked into TSCOG's statement that (SCO'S OBJECTIONS TO ORDER GRANTING IN PART IBM'S MOTION TO LIMIT SCO'S CLAIMS, p.43-44):

TSCOG then offers in its footnote 12:

Note the use of ellipses ( ... ), and that TSCOG writes the statement within one pair of double quotes.

Ellipses conote a passage of text from which some portions are removed, usually for brevity, but not with a loss of context.

Here, the use of ellipses clearly suggests that the phrase:

is all that of Bligh's, and is one continuous statement.

Nothing of the sort is true.

Locating the relevant posts to the LKML, Bligh's at http://lkml.org/lkml/2003/2/26/139 and Cleverdon's at http://lkml.org/lkml/2003/2/26/272 we can see that TSCOG's phrasing is the combination of Bligh's post on Wed, 26 Feb 2003 08:52:40, and an entirely separate post by Cleverdon at Wed, 26 Feb 2003 16:32:09, some eight hours later.

Bligh's statement is limited to:

While it it Cleverdon, in his entirely separate post eight hours later, who says:

In fact, in Bligh's email he clearly describes how he fixed the problem by "...brute force, trial and error, and 3 months of tearing my hair out was the only thing that suceeded in the end..."

Hardly what someone would go through if they'd merely been given a "method" from someone who'd worked on Dynix/ptx.

But of course, that doesn't stop TSCOG from lying, does it?
