Ah, OK. I see.

So David asks "are we likely to see VRPC run faster that the Iyonix", and I'm supposed to sit back and watch the conjecture and random backbiting rather than answer the question with information which is pertinant, because a statement of fact might be interpreted as advertising.

Sorry, I hadn't realised that was the objection - I'm primarily an engineer and I expect information to be digested and stand in its own right rather than massaged into a "message". If my information is going to be interpreted as advertising I might as well only post opinions which present the A6 in a "perfect" light rather than also showing its weaker points, surely?

I'm not into the whole marketing-speak like "The fastest ABC-OS machine is a great development platform. We're pleased to see XYZ on ABCMachine". I hope vague meaningless comments we've seen like this recently aren't going to mean that every scrap of data from all of us is going to be viewed with equal suspicion.
