Just what I said, the message only repeats the same "statement". Again
no name or reference to where the full "statement" can be found.
Who made the statement? What is their position at Oracle? Anyone can
make a statement but how much weight does that statement carry?
When I had first read the news report, I thought -- or hoped -- that it
referred to a published or "official" statement somewhere.
Now that I have read the news report again, I realise that the
"statement" was most likely made in a phone call or email to the
reporter, and someone else on this thread referred to an email.
Anonymous comments of this type are quite common in journalism; many
government and company officials will not speak to journalists if they
are going to be quoted by name... especially if they have not gone
through the approval process at their company or department.
