I wonder if I'll ever see one Thread in this forum where Mastertech and FreewheelinFrank post an entry
that doesn't end in an argument and usually the closing of the thread.
Sure looks like this one is headed the same way.
I thought we where discussing Anti-spyware not company genealogy.
If you dig deep enough, you'll find a skeleton in most closets.

Guys - really.  Its time for you both to come out of the closet  :)

Well, I figured out why I cannot access the websearch link earlier posted. My latest version 5.0 of Spysweeper comes up and says it's a site I shouldn't go to. Guess that answers my question. Guess as you said tech I had something stopping me from going there. Thought I would let you and drhayden1 know.  :)

Edit: What is strange my ISP could NOT access the site either. Oh well....

I posted a link to a review (Which didn't even mention the program all the fuss is about.) The other party, on the other hand, is well known for this sort of thing.

Can I suggest that other forum members who have probably realised this now ignore the bait and leave this thread to the discussion (if any) of the tests posted.

Frank you are to be commended for staying out of this one  :)

I will take your advice and ignore Mastertech's flame baits from now on and i suggest others do the same ...
I only wish he would stop it with the insults ...

Bob,

I've been digging in your closets today and found a 20 year old skeleton of 6 different types semantic wild cats, Bob is your closets becoming a pet cemetery and your telling us to stay out of your closets ;D............I don't think so mate and have you been forgetting to feed your pet cat lately since you have been overseas.

As long as I don't find Garfield hidden in your closets ;D cats love to hide in a closets doing they own nasty and dirty things...............it like "The cat closets in Love" ;D
