> Wow, I'm sure many people here will love to see themselves defined

And I am sure greenboy is impressed by the number of people who took that remark to mean themelves:) The gatemiga sycophants know who they are and what they did to be labelled so.
> A lot of people trusted them in good faith, since they WERE showing
> good signs. After all, not everyone can have inside information.
> I could understand these people being called "misled", maybe even
> "naive". But "sycophants"? This is downright offensive.
Only if you are one of them:) The statement refers to folks who did everything they could to oppose the rebellion forming against Amiga under Gateway, people who knew Amiga was blowing smoke but pretended things were great. For instance there were people who knew Amiga was not the MMC, and thus knew Jim Collas had not been entirely honest. Yet they were willing to lie about this in the hope of being employed by Amiga inc at the expense of others.
There were people who knew Jim Collas was under fire from Gateway, and was going to be removed from the picture entirely. Yet they continued to lie about the situation. It was known they were lying, but noone could not speak about it, since they had to preserve the anonymity of the souces within Amiga. They are the Gatemiga Sycophants. Are you one of them:)
> How arrogant. These guys still have to work a LOT on Public Relations
Of course, there is a lot more to be done than just this though.
