I don't know who posted it. But the content stands on its own. And what he said about the pitfalls was true even if his estimate of the danger was overblown.
Yes, this is a place for beginners as well as competent hackers. And I agree that examples are better. But they aren't always necessary and not providing one isn't really cause for a berating, particularly on fundamental points. And if a beginner doesn't understand and would like an example, he could always ask for one, right? I assume you didn't actually need one and I question your attempt to test the AM.
Not that any of this is as important as we are making it. You have a stated dislike for anonymous posting; I have a stated dislike for gratuitous pedantry. I think this thread brought up each of our pet peeves.
