I wonder why people have to publicly insult people for doing good work. I'm 
not saying either way that I agree with the recommendations or disagree, but 
I do feel that there is no need to insult the work of the megashare people. 
I'm sure they have put lots of time into this and if they have given it the 
ability to "learn" that is an admirable technical achievement. You can have 
the choice to take their advice or not - there is really no need to call 
someones work "bollocks". When people say this about someones program you 
have just insulted their mind because essentially programs are an executable 
form of peoples thought processes. IMO there is simply no need to insult the 
megashare people, just keep those comments to yourself.
