Maybe I'm just too dense to understand. But, you've basically labelled

criticized the published number they used that came from your company's 
product. For what?

You've provided no new data. No reference to new data. When asked for a 
head to head test, you defer because in Europe such "marketing" (I don't 
necessarily consider benchmarks marketing) is not allowed. And, you've 
used far more bandwidth than Greg's orignal post which you critcized as 

What am I missing here??????
