Legal "Oracle has admitted to the court that it retains the frequently-cited Florian Mueller of the popular blog FOSS Patents as a consultant. The official disclosure comes a week after the judge in Oracle's lawsuit against Google took the extraordinary step of ordering both parties to reveal any paid journalists or bloggers on their payrolls. Both companies filed their responses today, and Mueller is the only person named in either filing." Google paid nobody. Also, if you're surprised by Mueller being paid by Oracle - I have a Paleis op de Dam to sell you.

But which is worse, the paid whore or the paid troll?

Personally I'd rather deal with the paid whore where I know who they are whoring to (so I can avoid any articles involving their master) than deal with articles spammed all over the Internet by the likes of Nichols and Thurott who whole job it is to write the most flamebait articles possible to turn as much of the net into flamewars as they can to ratchet up their page views.
