That he states his affiliation is really not good enough.

For you - for me (and a lot of his other readers) it is just making a point. (Perhaps to balance off threads like this one has gone to.)

What he writes is Olympus marketing.

No it isn't - it is his opinion (possibly tainted by his love for Olympus cameras/lenses) and his alone. Why should you think this is a "brochure/marketing pamphlet"? He has been writing his blog - and never attempting to hide his like for Olympus stuff - long before he became an employee for them.

And you know that "his opinion" alone has not been cleared for release, and perhaps tweaked or censored by his employer (you know, the one that pays him money to live), exactly how?

That's odd. I'm beginning to think that applies to your posts on the matter.

What's odd is that you equate your clever phrase with logic.

I state a presumed fact: He is an employee of the company whose product he is "reviewing," and folks around the world who have any brains understand the large inherent conflict of interest.

The burden is on you to show that it does not affect his writings, not on me to show it doesn't.

Lighten up, Francis. I simply applied your "logic" to your posts. We know who he is, and where he works. The same can't be said of you. Can you prove your opinion "has not been cleared for release, and perhaps tweaked or censored by [your] employer (you know, the one that pays [you] money to live)"? I don't think that's the case with you, but I believe that serves as an example of how tortured this has become.

I've already decided I can put more trust in Robin than you believe you can; so be it. This is all about perception and opinion; there are no facts that support your position beyond Robin's place of employment. No state secret, that.

Ramble on about this all you want, but I don't think you're going to change anyone's mind one way or the other without something more than a "presumed fact", whatever that means.
