'MicroDigital have, oddly enough, left the ball in Simtec's court by saying the release of Omega USB support is down to "how busy [Simtec] are with other work".'

Compare to:

'When we release the software to Simtec the completed system will basically depend on how busy they are with other work.'

MD say it WILL depend how busy they [Simtec] are at the time, whichj seems a reasonable enough thing to say. Drobe's careful editing makes it look like Simtec already have the necassary to do the work, and are the cause of delay. In actual fact, MD never said or implied any such thing. If Drobe hadn't so clumsily edited the original statement for its own agenda without thinking, perhaps Simtec wouldn't have felt the need to write too them.

I am not complaining about the situation viz a viz Omega, MD and Simtec as quite frankly I don't give a monkeys, but I am complaining about Drobe deliberatly editing comments in order to change their meaning. And you are right, Simtec shouldn't take the blame, so why did Drobe edit the comment to make it looka s though MD were attempting to shift the blame to them? In fact MD haven't "left the ball in Simtecs court " at all, as their original statement states quite clearly that MD haven't finished their bit yet.

So why *did* Drobe feel it necessary to edit in that way?
