I think we all respect Drobe for its positive contribution to the RISC OS scene, and it is the only RISC OS board I post on. However, if a company sends a press release to a media source, and the press release isn't published, or is reduced to a paragraph somewhere without all the info, then customers cannot treat that site as their only source of news.

Conversely, provided press releases meet the basic explanatory standards, c.s.a.a will accept and post the press releases, usually within 24 hours.

As such, I don't think it is unreasonable to suggest that for people wanting maximum information on products/services, direct from the source, c.s.a.a is preferable.

Where Drobe scores is in its ability to offer feedback and comment on things. A blend of news and views. Many interesting articles appear on Drobe that couldn't appear on c.s.a.a.... such as this one!

As such, surely people should treat each source of info according to what service it provides?
