Adobe apparently employing the Irish to spread misinformation.

Yesterday, I made this post about free software for windows in which I recommended Foxit Reader over the craptastic Adobe Reader.

A while later, at around 02:20am east coast time "anonymous" made this reply:

"Regarding the Adobe Reader, It's large, but buggy? C'mon, that's rubbish! Foxit is small and neat but i've had problems with it."

I say "anonymous" in quotes because my statcounter recorded this tidbit of information:



If you can't read that, it says "vpn-dublin-ext.adobe.com"

Why hello there, Dublin-based Adobe employee. You don't think your negative opinion about Foxit reader could be biased do you? The use of the word "rubbish" made me laugh out loud.

I use Foxit reader every single day. I've never had a single problem with it, even opening very large PDF files. Acrobat, on the other hand, takes forever to load, crashes my computer and occasionally prints page after pages of random characters.
