    Direct competitor going IPO this week!!

    I can't believe how many people are whining about
    FFIV's PR not putting out a release on this so-called
    "news" in the Seattle paper.

    Give me a break! It
    was just a couple of sentences in an article in some
    local newspaper. FFIV probably doesn't even know about
    it. Do you think a company is going to respond to or
    reiterate every damn thing that every little newspaper or
    magazine across the country writes about them? Geez, maybe
    they should put out a press release that someone on
    the Yahoo message board said FFIV will be a 10 bagger
    by the end of the year.

    Not to mention, on
    this particular bit of "news" I think it would be a
    really big mistake to come out with a national press
    release saying "Guess what world, we just passed Cisco!"
    That's nothing but trash talking. A company PR
    department should stick to business matters: reporting on
    new deals, partnerships, customers, earnings
    prospects, etc.
