Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

It's not like he was announcing that life had just been discovered on Mars for crying out loud.

Personally I would like my tech news in a timely manner and run the small risk that it is occassionally bollocks.

Although perhaps you will waste time reading and discussing 310 comments, but do you think that is the fault of the discourse of the commentors?

It's OK as long as retractions are printed when errors are found.

There were many articles published before the correction, although many don't have that many comments. It's like we're waiting for a correction.
