Default Re: BDA confirms fake forum accounts & blogs created to promote Blu-Ray - "Phase Hydra"

The BDA even has a picture of a hydra they are using to generate internal awareness at BDA events

P.S. I never thought this little trifle would generate so much discussion--I kind of assumed we were already witness to this type of stuff and I was just verifying the name. I've only had two posts here deleted by the mods, the first being when I posted Warner's original HD DVD rollout schedule, and now this (my question in the Insider's thread was deleted, but the damage was already done). Spooky...

If we ever write a book on this whole story, we need to dedicate a chapter to you .

Wonder how many people will get what we are talking about....
Confirmed by Microsoft, as well, it seems.
We're all in it together.
