Internet Explorer "There, I said it. Microsoft has been bombarding the media with claims about how much better IE9 is than all the other browsers, more HTML5 and CSS3 compliant than any other browser that ever existing and ever will. It's the only browser that passes all the tests they made up. And, Microsoft has finally implemented the CSS3 selectors that were implemented by other browsers back in, what? 2003? Because Microsoft has updated IE to support CSS3 selectors and rounded corners, they want us to believe that somehow IE9 magically supports the whole slew of CSS3 visual styling. I'm afraid it doesn't. As a matter of fact, IE9's support for CSS3 visual styling is so poor that the results are shocking."

Sorry, Thom, but I think you did a mistake posting some FUD about Microsoft made up by some moron who knows exactly what he is doing.
[...]
This is a publicity stunt by a moron with a blog nobody reads, and you are giving him a lot of visits and misleading your readers. Please, Thom, remove the link, or make an update with a correction. I love your work to much to see it ripped by this mistake.

Please, see my comment (http://www.osnews.com/permalink?446938) where I give my point of view about this. I don't think we should mangle the news item. I don't think Thom having posted a user submission is wrong or that the member who submitted did anything wrong. An open mind receiving educated opinions is better equipped. Don't you think? I, for one, didn't know about the w3c's standards adoption process, and that's just an example.
Anyway, I'm sure the true content (and intent) of the blogger's post is less likely to mislead people now that we've debated about it here.
