I didn't intend to start a big issue..We are arguing semantics.
IMHO, something like that was bound to happen.

I gave a presentation in Toronto a month ago where I list all the specific characteristics of genuine PLAs, signaling voltage, CASRAM latency, hysteresis on inputs, etc.. and most PLA substitutes out there are missing one or more of them.

I know only of PLAnkton and J-PLA which covers them all but there are easily dozens of products available so these 2 are a small minority. So for Mr. Everyone out there, they generally all have an issue or another.

Worst, I was banned from L3-5ixtyf0ur for defending the technical details I discovered. I think I stayed quite polite and civilized compared to virulent denials I was faced with.

Even here (here refers to the Denial forum and the posts from MCes), recently, I was faced with a specific forum user who very superficially studied the design of PLAnkton and decided, since he couldn't make sense of some aspects of it, that it was a totally flawed product.

On this specific point, I think he's perfectly right.
