Interesting that Comodo don't want to have the results be published. Because I remember that before Melih was banned from Wilders, he made a statement there he had no problem with testing results to be published.

Greetz, Red.
Hello Red,

My Two Cents;

It's not that Comodo Doesn't want to have the results published, It's the fact that they don't want to pay Couple Hundred Euros Extra to have AV C to publish the results.

You can see the results at Melihs Blog

I'm publicly quoted in Melih's blog (Comodo CEO):

Guess you're famous now... ;D

Tech, that list is what IBK explained, so there is no problem, no contradiction.
In this situation, when one says one thing and the other a different one, it won't be bad a confirmation from IBK.

which are the criteria for a company to get rejected from the first starting point from participating in the public tests.
It could be said, couldn't it? IBK?
Market share?

YoKenny don't start picking on Tech as a Comodo fanboy, otherwise you may have world smallest wood pecker between your front lower door knob >:(

I always knew you were a Comodo fanboy.

No, he isn't.
As Tech always says his personal opinon, independently where he posts.

There is a huge difference between posting on a forum and being a fanboy.
I've posted on their forum but Comodo has never called me a fan.  ;D ;D

None of this Comodo sidetracking changes the fact that I'd like to see
the fact that the AV companies are charged for AV Comparatives services
in plain view. So that no one thinks that their services are free.
I'd also like to see their impartiality in their testing methods clearly spelled out.
If we are to rely on these test results, then every legitimate AV Company should be treated equally.

Thanks Bob.
Seems that YoKenny wants to bash me.
I'm not even an avast fanboy.

+1 Bob, you've matched the shot again.

Hi Jacob,

Thnx for the link :)

In my opinion the results are good and promising, if you take in consideration the relative short time Comodo is on the AV market.

Greetz, Red.
