Neowin + NTFS + EP v TheInquirer

#1
Whoohooo!

Am I allowed to print this????

Check out this link first from Neowin if you don't know the background to the story.

Then check this out - hehe.

* NEOWIN
Our crazy wibbler Paul Hales set off a war against neowin.net last Wednesday when I was looking at robots in Lille. I didn't see this article or get my phone messages from little Neowin until I got home late that evening. Halesie is quite right to hit out against web sites that print our stories in full and then give us the tiniest attribution at the bottom of the story in two point type. But I'd like to say here that Neowin has never done this, and in fact has been very supportive to the INQ since we first started nearly three years ago now. It's also given us some important leads on software stories which we've followed up and published. Halesie must have been suffering from the dog. I'd like to apologise to Neowin for the INQ causing them grief. I'm not going to slap down Halesie, because his heart's in the right place. He just went over the top all guns blazing that day - with Neowin suffering from the "friendly fire". Mike Magee.

Yeah, as far as I know the situation has been resolved. I only ever print the first two three paragraphs anyway (not speaking for the other news poster, but that is also what I would like them to do now)

Tho, to be honest, I don't post articles from the Inquirer ;)
Tho I do check the register daily at work.

I see Paul Hales was quoting from Neowin today on theInquirer here (no prizes for guessing for what story), and neglected to make the Neowin.net reference a link...

Now, isnt that a bit two faced concidering?

Perhaps, if your being picky, quoting was the wrong word to use - referring too would have been a better choice of words perhaps.

Anyhoo, the point i was trying to make is that we always link theinquirer in at the bottom of a news story and they just mention the name without the link.

Your point was/is valid. The irony of hypocrisy in situations such as these tends to make me laugh. Sorry, it's just my sense of humour.

I'm glad to see people with more... restraint and professionalism than what Mr. Hales displayed from The Inq. Not only did he make himself look bad... he made The Inq look bad. Poor journalistic ethic and lack of professionalism which equals out to lack of integrity in my book. Apology or not from Mr. Magee [which I was pleased to see], the bell cannot be unrung.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
