James Middleton of vnunet.com (UK) has taken the SF posts from HC and
Damien and turned it into an article:

Users slam Microsoft Security Analyser
http://www.vnunet.com/News/1130844

(I guess in the UK they spell it with an "s" instead of a "z")

James' email was not on the article, but since I know he is reading these
posts, I would like to make some comments:

First, shouldn't the main title be changed from "Users slam Microsoft
Security Analyser" to "Three Users slam Microsoft Security Analyser?"

I am amazed that someone could take the comments of 2 or 3 people and turn
it into an article. Obviously, James did not do his homework...
I would have hoped that he would have downloaded and tested the tool before
giving credence to someone who thinks it is "just a GUI version of the
software giant's HfNetChk."

It does FAR more than just check for missing patches, and he would know
that if he looked at it. And before you people go on record with a
publication, you too should do your homework before your words are quoted
to live forever in error.

I was going to comment on different excerpts from the article, but I would
end up quoting the whole thing... Jeeze.
