It is not my code, so don't shoot the messenger :(

This is seriously the kind of FUD you would expect from Microsoft  
(.NET Petshop anyone...). As I clearly pointed out, I am not saying  
that the comparison per se is bad. It is your insinuation in the blog  
post that is. And this reply is even worse. With great power comes  
great responsibility, with benchmarks comes even more...
