Avast Antivirus verbally threatening Macgasm's writers

In an article about Apple’s attempts to thwart piracy on the internet, one of Macgasm's writers apparently made the mistake of starting his post off with, “Avast! Apptrackr, a repository for cracked iOS apps, is under attack from Apple’s legal team.” the word “avast” literally means stop, cease. Apparently our usage of the word avast has incensed the Avast AntiVirus team so much that they’ve taken to tracking down the writer and tossing obscenities at him on his personal blog, as well as badgering him in his email inbox.

The story is too old to be commented.
