Confirm comment report request

If Stuart was concerned about the impact of the original (informal) comment by John Ballance, I'm sure he could've responded in the same place as that comment was made.

The announcement (as issued by someone else) suggests that was not the case - the person "announcing" the "offer" had other fish to fry.

John Ballance is to be castigated for being so naive as to think that a complimentary comment about a (potential) competitor whose technical abilities he respects, might escape without a publicity opportunity for that potential competitor.

Maybe that's why John B is a technical expert and not a salesman.

Less spin and more substance would benefit RISC OS companies, methinks.
