Product naming has a long standing tradition here. Every one of the major players in 
the field has had their name posted to the group on nearly a weekly basis for the last 
several years. Advertising a product is one thing, but informational posts with direct 
correlation to a short-coming of the topic product (aka Protel EDA) is entirely within 

Doug, I personally think it would be quite beneficial to the group to post the product 
name/mfg here, as it would validate those claims to the Protel/Altium lurker staff, 
thereby applying more than implicative pressure on the company. You know how it is 
with unsubstantiated allegations, whether against a concern or in favor of 
another...They're unsubstantiated and therefore can easily be dismissed by those in 
the management track as nothing more than blather.

Evidence is worth its weight in gold.
