I can agree with that.

Aside from that, David's statement has compared three apples and an
orange. MBAM doesn't even try to be a comprehensive virus detector
(yet) - while the others do.

I was comparing the opinions of people here, not the products, dickweed.

You were guessing at the opinions you would get here when comparing
apples to oranges.

Such hostility ... it was the featherduster comment wasn't it?

Careful JD, we might annoy an anonymous remailer who took offense to a
"scumbag" virus writer and several others pointing out those.. ehm, bad
practices. We wouldn't want another super flood of bullshit flushed on
us. :)

No, I'm sick of people such as yourself taking everything and picking it
apart.  I asked a simple question and wanted a simple answer.  If you keep
spewing crap at me I'll killfile you, too.  I don't need this.

My apples and oranges comment was not meant to be a picking apart of
your post, but rather a clarification to other possible readers that
MBAM shouldn't be lumped together with antiVIRUS applications. There was
no need for you to make the ad hominem remark. Casual readers might have
taken your observation regarding what you think our opinions are to mean
that MBAM was recommended over Norton, McAfee, and AVG in these groups.

Go ahead and killfile me - it's not as if I care. You can even announce
it if you feel you must.

It seems so. The fact is that I have never heard anyone except Mow Green
suggest it as one they trusted - had it not been for his post some time
back in a group far far away...I would probably not have known of its
existence.

Hadn't seen it. Readers might be confused by the difference between a
removal tool and an active protection AV program. Just because a tool is
recommended, that doesn't mean a security application is (McAfee's
stinger might be recommended but their AV might not). I thought David's
customer had installed a "suite" comparable to MSE. I was away from the
groups for a couple of years, and since then Ad-Aware and The Cleaner
have both become AV's and so many others have popped up that it is hard
to keep track. If Mow says Vipre is "trustworthy", I will surely take
his word for it. My trust for Mow comes only from the usenet posts of
his that I have seen.

I use Vipre but haven't used MS Security Essentials so can't compare the
two.

I'm still licensed to use NOD32 (ESET Smart Security)  but recently spat
the dummy and uninstalled it because of their insistence to email to my
ISP email address. which I don't check.
My  ISP is happy to use my Fastmail.fm address though.

I find that Vipre checks for updates every 4 hours or so and does a scan
every day at 11:00 AM which is configurable.

I run a very tight computer and neither NOD32 or Vipre have ever
discovered and reported anything.

My old AV never found anything, but my new AV doesn't find anything even
better. :o)

Not in my experience, and I'm a very long term user of NOD32. I cannot
understand why you had that problem, and I very much doubt that it's
because you use the excellent Fastmail.

Same here.
I am a long-time user of NOD32.
I never received an e-mail from ESET, nor any request for my e-mail
address.

Ooh I nearly missed this. Cant you learn to post so it appears in thread
correctly. I assume this is where you need help. Of course, I can teach
you how to do this.
Kiss kiss right back at you big boy.

Anne Onime is one I have killfiled ( George Orwell too - no
entertainment value,  just silly foul language wordplay usually). Most
of these "anon" posts show up in my newsreader as disconnected from the
thread that they were replying to. This one as well, in the right
discussion, but not in the right subthread.
