Default DailyTech probes website test bribes

Surprised to see there wasn't a topic on this already.

I'm sure this isn't a surprise to anyone, but man, if it isn't a disappointment.

I'm not sure why they didn't name names. Except for the obvious lawsuit implications, but c'mon, you can't pretend to be a hard-hitting journalist and then say "but we won't name names."

Remember, if you accuse everybody else of being potentially unreliable, the only one who is not guilty by association is you...

That, or they want to blackmail the sites that fell for it.
