Caught?  It's public and the history is available for everyone to see and he edited it with his normal account. I'm sure he fears your amazing sleuthing powers!

And ... "competitors"? In favor of BFL?  The aforementioned 'competitor' is building a centralized mining farm, not selling a hashing product to the public (at least not in the immediate future).  The page is about mining hardware for people building mining farms.  Asicminer doesn't obviously have any reason to be there.  (Frankly, none of the not-yet-shipping hardware really does, IMO, but that argument has been lost).

Please don't abuse your moderator status to create new drama sticky threads, especially when you've so recently berrated other people for spreading pro/anti- BFL drama outside of the BFL thread.

He removed the ASISCMiner text, which as it currently stands, they will end up being the only ASIC vendor shipping in 2012 as long as everything continues on schedule. Luke-Jr is afraid that he is going to lose his large investment in BFL, and doesn't understand he has already lost it because BFL seems to have no plans to ship the products their investors have paid for.

So, yes, he is shilling for BFL, and I don't see why you're attacking ASICMiner either. They plan on selling to outside customers while also operating a small farm on behalf of investors. I think you're confused on what ASICMiner is actually doing.
