The modded-down posts include the text of a message purportedly from a well-known ReactOS dev to the ros-dev mailing list.

The message was at
http://www.reactos.org/archives/public/ros-dev/2006-January/007472....
but has been removed from that list. It's no surprise - if the message was not spoofed, it is so damning that it destroys the credibility of ReactOS as an original piece of work.

It's a real shame, because ReactOS is a really promising project, and along with many others I was watching the progress of the project with keen anticipation. The ReactOS team must somehow resolve the accusations of copying. Until it does, we should take the view that there's nothing to see here.
