Not offended. Irritated. Misinformation is irritating. Remember the Brady guide for FFXI? Good info in there, and some horrible advice as well. That kind of situation here I think.
I hadn't thought of it that way, but that's a pretty accurate description. It's kinda like listening to Michael on Burn Notice talking about getting around locks/safes/computers: It sounds really well and good, but if you know what he's talking about, you can have a field day with pointing out all the errors. I work in IT and my father has been a locksmith and safetech for years, so while we both love Burn Notice, we pick the **** out of their "How [not] to get around security"
And before anyone says "Well obviously they can't tell you the REAL way to do it or they'd get sued", you're right. I agree. Won't stop me from picking it apart though. I still love Burn Notice regardless. These guys are annoying as **** though.
