I don't care to discuss my business or editorial dealings with an author with anyone besides the author or in public. If David wishes to respond, he's welcome to do so. If you have general questions about my editorial policies, please feel free to send me an e-mail.
David's agreed to tackle eDirectory and I'm looking forward to that article. At that point, if you'd like to write a rebuttal, please send me an e-mail and we can discuss the process.
I do appreciate your concerns about the facts of these two articles. Part of the blame rests with me -- I don't have the time at the moment to give every article the attention it deserves. We've done peer review of articles in the past, though it's mostly been instigated by authors themselves. I'll bring up the idea in our next editorial meeting.
Reading through some of the links provided in other messages, I don't reach the same conclusions you do. There may be a big perceptual issue here. While Novell's been doing fine, fine work for years, Microsoft's the 800-pound gorilla and as NT 4.0 finally slouches off into the sunset, the upgrade path from NT domains seems to point to AD. Whether that's fair or right is not a question I want to answer.
