I'm really sorry you held this bloated pig through earnings, but that's not my fault. But the more pressing concern for you is that you don't know how to read. Read my post again -- it compares each quarter, Q3 (from the ER) and Q4 2010 (from guidance in the ER), each to the corresponding Qs last year. That is absolutely the proper way to look at trends in growth. You should probably look up "acceleration" in the dictionary, too, and maybe you ought to stop drinking.
