My two cents (Euro of course).
Although I think that this discussion is rather academic, as I don't see too much that can be done to revert the situation, perhaps we can't limit the damages of being associated to a boxshifter if ROS Ltd and Castle (or even Pace, if they think it's worth) send some corporate e-mails to whatever education-related to clarify that nor they nor RISC OS are 'involved' with that sort of things. AFAIK the only claims that (fake)ACL can make is that's UK-based, that they sell computers and that they NOW own the Acorn brand, but that's all.
Said that, I too don't agree with the publication of such an article, as I think that 90% is retired from ACL brochures/site/advertising/whatever. It's not an 'head-in-the-sand' attitude, simply IMHO this type of information isn'needed here.
