Fueling flames or catching hackers

In response to CNET's coverage of Linux, spam and viruses:

It seems to me that your Linux coverage is very sensationalistic, inflammatory and insulting to the free-software community. I find it disheartening that an organization that is planning to start a replacement for, a service that is geared to encourage the sharing and giving of artistic work for all to use, would paint Linux contributors and users as "enraged," "upstarts," and "embroiled in controversy."

I think that it would be far better if you would spend more time encouraging people to put spammers and virus writers in jail, instead of fueling the flames caused by their diversions. Don't you?
