You obviously did not read my message with enough attention

Hey, Stefan, should we do an article about the benchmarks you do - a
professional one for print magazines? Yes, they still exist. I would ask
former employee - not only to set this Phoronix tests right again, but to
have some reliable data source to compare.

I don't think that an article about "producing benchmark results that
prove exactly what you want to prove" is something I really want my name
attached to
(And what a magazine for professionals would want to print)

Interesting, something here must have gone terribly wrong in quoting. I can't
remember writing that sentence and I would never do that. Maybe I just got
that wrong. From what I understood, you know how to cheat in benchmarks. And I
think telling people about how ugly people cheat (or accidentally do wrong
things, maybe even subconciously) would be a great thing and a nice article -
if that hasn't been written many a times.

Yes, I still think an article about "How to get the benchmark results you
want" might be interesting. Why? Because:
Readers might like to read:
a) "Beware! - here's how people fake benchmarks"
b) "Beware! - How to recognize faked benchmarks"
c) "What you should be aware of when creating benchmarks"

Am I wrong?
