The Register remains a hopeless case. They have published five articles on LinkScanner without ever getting the story right, and in some cases have added to the confusion. But they say they intend to write more on the subject so there is still hope for redemption.
Without The Register this story would not have grown legs in the mainstream tech media, and AVG would not have backed down by now. Many of WebmasterWorld's users are good at eking out the details of esoteric webmastering issues, but as a whole WebmasterWorld is not very good at solving a problem by applying media pressure.
