cables: And someone got *very* uptight when Acorn User suggested that a program that deliberately ignored the style guide (in practically every way) was bad just for that reason. If someone is trying to con you with rubbish then it's fair to let the criticism off the leash - but I don't know of anyone who does that in the RISC OS market these days. If products fall below what you would hope for it's going to be because they cannot afford to do more, cannot do better with the time and facilities available, or haven't had sufficient feedback. Honest criticism never means knocking copy - and Rob seems unable to accept that knocking copy is simply not appropriate here, in RISC OS magazines, or in the newsgroups.

BTW Archimedes World (which turned into Arc World for a fleeting moment) technically became subsumed within Acorn User which became Qercus when AU merged with AP. So not quite defunct.
