Quit the rumor mongering
Danny addresses a personal rumor on the newsgroups.
He writes "The rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated" and "I have no plans to leave Borland for the forseeable future".
Danny stated the same in his blog earlier this year.
Danny continues in his post to elaborate on how these rumors are bad for our business relationships.
I agree with Danny, if you hear such rumors, *please* ask us to validate or discard them before passing them on. Rumor mongering makes no one happy.
Danny also notes that he will be in Redmond next week on normal Borland business. This is completely normal. People from different companies have to get together to discuss business sometimes. If there was a rumor for every customer I talked to, I'd be drowning in rumors.
Even I have been up at Microsoft myself a couple of times. And I'm still at Borland as well.
Thanks for paying attention. Next time a rumor pops up, please help put it out. Stop the FUD. Stop the rumors.
