A friend posted on a site that I frequent a link to this post on the Emsisoft blog ( http://blog.emsisoft.com/2015/07/27/leaked-files-from-state-sponsored-hackers-reveal-which-protection-their-trojans-cant-get-past/) and wondered if he should buy their product based on this post. I informed my friend that no they should not buy Emsisofts product based on that post and that I felt it was only highlighted to scare people into thinking that they "need" Emsisoft product to feel safe. To me this is the worst advertising format in the world. I feel that companies that sink to this level to bolster sales are truely crappy. I posted my feelings on the Emsisoft blog and got banned for it. Below is my initial reply, Maybe I got banned from the blog because of my willingness to stand up and mention Malwarebytes " lol, nothing more than scare tactics to promote a product. They count on you taking this literal. I would gladly take this test just running Malwarebytes Pro alone with no antivirus in place. Emsisoft's scores are so far below the national average that they would rather have you focus on this bit of information thats produced "in house". " My judgement would be that, if a company has to do this to bolster sales, stay away far away. PeAcE " Did I honeasly diserve a ban for this ?
