Well just when I thought everything was fine. My friend the only one I've seen time and time again giving misinformation is you. This question has been asked about 1 billion times here and nothing ever comes of it except a pointless debate. Both DX and GL are great. But that does not mean I magically know which one the OP should use.
It use to not be that way. Shoving him to a article/thread is bound for misinformation in today's world. With these facts, sharing up-to-date information to the seeker is my recommendation rather than being blunt about it and share links starting from 2002, or by disregarding the poster's question in the first place. Keep the poster up to date if nothing else. Maybe then message boards would stop being so misinformative.
