Default Phase Hydra Hoax?

An admitted hacker has just stated that the "Phase Hydra" story was made up by an HD-DVD double agent who was attempting to make the BDA look bad and cast the HD-DVD camp in a more consumer friendly light. The threads of deception and counter espionage continue. Wow this is better than an James Bond flick - maybe I should go watch "Casino Royale" again on my Blu-ray player . Wow I have a hard time believing Toshiba and Microsoft would stoop this low but I would expect this level of evil and deception from the BDA ( sarcasm ).

First, why do you need to create another thread for this when we already have one on this subject?

Second, why should we believe you? Where is the link/proof?

Third, Paidgeek, a Sony insider, has already admitted it exists, and also just posted this:

So, OP, you are calling the main Sony insider a liar?

And fourth, you are not only calling a Sony insider a liar, you are seriously going to say Toshiba and Microsoft were behind his lies?

If you want to hurry and edit your post, so as not to look a fool, I promise not to tell anyone before more people see it.

You should definitely believe everything you read on the internet and assume it is all true and you should have more faith in discussion forum posts than any other source on the internet.

Why? To be like you?

You just start a thread stating something happened, and someone admitted something, without a shred of proof.

I think I'm going to start a thread about how someone at Sony admitted blu-ray was half-baked and should be scraped and started over. Or maybe I'll start a thread about how BD 2.0 will require players to bake peanut butter cookies.

And guess what? Those threads will have just as much proof as this one.

So we're supposed to believe someone that works & is paid by Sony saying that it isn't true.

Well that's believable. I can see why someone that "works" for Sony would say it's not true.

Amir said it was true, therefore it's true. Because a Microsoft shill... err, EXECUTIVE is always right.

Actually, I looked at Amir's response, and it was worded VERY carefully, so as to imply he was saying it was true, but without actually saying it outright. Of course, it may have been intentionally done that way, or it just might be the way he posts. I haven't read enough of his posts to be sure on that one.

Remember you should definitely believe everything you read on the internet and assume it is all true and you should have more faith in discussion forum posts than any other source on the internet.

An admitted self proclaimed hacker said that certain members of our government ( whom I will not mention here ) are wanting to outlaw the use of HD-DVD because they are secretly controlled by the BDA ( or was it the other way around? ). The "Phase Hydra Gate" scandal? I've got forum links to prove it. Dang it! What were my employers paying me to write again. Anyway you get the point.......

You just agreed with what the OP said.

You posted these words by Paidgeek:

So Paidgeek says the name "Phase Hydra" exists and was used on a Sony presentatiom but has nothing to do with forum postings to promote Blu-ray.

Paidgeek is basically saying someone is making the story up. The OP has posted to that effect also.
