No, it's not. But people of differing opinions are certainly welcome to share their views.

Given ZeroTX's track record during his time on the forums, I don't think his intent was to troll.

With regard to the coming flood of Mac malware, Windows bigots and the press have been predicting this for the past decade. Here are a couple of articles that I love on this topic:

Broken Windows
Daring Fireball: Broken Windows

So Witty (followup to Broken Windows)
Daring Fireball: So Witty

Here is an interesting article. It is simply entitled "Wolf." It is about the press crying "wolf" for the past decade with regard to the "coming wave of Mac malware."

Daring Fireball: Wolf!
Daring Fireball: Wolf!
Although I agree with Gruber's viewpoint, I could see where one can argue that the amount of malware on the Mac has increased significantly over the past several years, particularly as the Mac's marketshare has grown. Now, they're not the kind of destructive viruses and worms we see on other platforms, but we're still seeing a significant increase in trojans, fake AV programs and the like.

Don't feed the trolls folks!
It seems to me that's exactly what you just did.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
