"That said, I've asked David to explore eDirectory in his next article"
His first two articles on Enterprise Directory Services contained numerous generalizations, assumptions and technical inaccuracies. How is he going to learn and then effectively evaluate something that is obviously foreign to him?
Is the article due before or after he corrects his mistakes (or backs up his assumptions) in these first two articles? You took to task your *readers* to provide backup for their comments, but you don't hold an author with a negative track record to the same standards?
I would suggest that you get an experienced CDE to write the article. It only seems appropriate to have someone who is already integrating Netware, Windows and Linux servers within their environment to write the article as opposed to someone who wrote an article on "Enterprise Directory Services and Linux" when they were supposed to write about the "challenges" that a company faces when integrating Linux.
