Yes, and it's simply wrong -- as I said.

You claimed you were posting it 'FYI' -- for your information -- but the 
net effect of your posting was mostly misinformation, particularly the
ITworld.com headline (above) that you quoted and heavily featured.

What I said was 'simply wrong' was NOT from Usenet, but rather from
ITworld.com.  You forgot so soon?  You provided the URL in your post
right above your quotation of the ITworld.com guy's headline:

Sorry, that headline's simply wrong.  Thus my point:  simply wrong.

It would have been no less wrong if you'd quoted it from Usenet, but in
fact you quoted it from ITworld.com.

OK, what's your point?

I wished to correct the impression you created in posting it, by
explaining why it was simply wrong.  So, I did so.

If you believe it's somehow unsporting to point out that someting you
post is simply wrong merely because you were quoting someone else, I
respectfully disagree.
