What I want to draw attention to is where you effectively raise the specter of DxO being false on the web page, which is in completely in line with how you characterize their ratings, etc. There was no call for you to make that remark or even to suggest that and in that, it is you who is being false. Hide, if you like, behind the fact that you listed other options but the fact remains you went out of your way to allege that DxO was being false on their web site when you knew they weren't.
I know nothing of the sort
So now you're denying that you read the web page with the company logos and thus didn't read the part where DxO said that they were only listing some of their customers? Which is it? That you read the entire page and at the time of suggested that DxO were being false in their claims about the "top 10" fully aware that the logos presented weren't fully representative of their customer base or that you made the suggestion that DxO's exclusion of Canon was because you hadn't read what DxO printed on their web page properly?
Is there a community college near you that offers basic reading comprehension and logical reasoning courses?
I don't need a community college to teach me when someone makes an allegation that is wrong.
You're joining together two statements by DxO that are unrelated.
Nowhere do they say that the listing of logos includes all of the top ten DSC manufacturers.
They state that (1) all of the top DSC manufacturers are their clients and that (2) the listing of logos is some of their clients. There is no statement on their website that says all of the logos are those from the top ten DSC manufacturers.
Even though you buy DxO's software, you just seem to see red whenever you look at their website. I feel sorry for you.
Perhaps you could state your reasoning which supports the idea that DxO is being truthful that their client list includes 'all of the top ten DSC manufacturers' as defined in a relevant way ... but has chosen not to display the logo of the #1 dSLR maker and BusinessWeek's #35 global brand ... among their list of clients. What can you come up with, besides 'Canon didn't permit it' (which I have already suggested as the most likely possibility),
I don't really care why Canon isn't listed or not. It makes no difference to me and I can't see it meaning anything. I can't make any more meaningful comment on why Canon isn't there than you can - unless you know the people at DxO that made the decisions to put vendors there or someone at Canon that knows why Canon said no if the company did in fact say no. I don't have an opinion as to why DxO don't include Canon there, nor do I have (or need to have) a theory as to why Canon isn't included. If you do then I feel sorry for you.
So speculate all you like but all you are doing is guessing/speculating. Attempting to pass off your opinions or guesses as fact does not change them from just being a guess.
There's a phrase that you should include more in your posts and it goes like this: "In my opinion." Start using those three words with your statements and they'll be a lot less contentious.
DxO is accommodating one or more of the clients more important to them (e.g., they are 'joined at the hip with Nikon', which you have been arguing against), or DxO are makes foolish business decisions?
Why do you think that DxO is more accommodating towards Nikon?
