Entering a marketing pissing contest would just show that we think we 
need to rebut their comments.

I personally think we don't.

They can throw all the FUD they want on us, but, doing so, they will 
just show their customers that such a free and open source solution 
exists (and maybe they didn't know).

bad publicity is still publicity. And lies fire back.

They do a much better marketing service for us if they keep up that 
lame page ;-)

again, non-linear marketing at work.

[oh, look, they support Java Server Faces.... (sound of Stefano puking)]
