    Default A Jon Jahren test?

    There is a Microsoftie over at Slashdot: http://linux.slashdot.org/comments.p...0&cid=35387730. He writes "Just say 'Phoronix' in TFS [The f***ing Subject?] So that I don't actually have to visit the site to find out it's useless"

    That made me think, what if he could manage people to submit sublimely irrelevant data. How do would one check for that? A vm would be hard to identify I guess, but give sustainably lower performance. Perhaps a statistical analysis of some parameter in the long run could identify an issue, but... Any thoughts?

    EDIT 2012JUN10: Apparently there are at least two persons with the same name. The one who wrote in Slashdot:

    Just say 'Phoronix' in TFS. So that I don't actually have to visit the site to find out it's useless.
    is not associated with Microsoft. My apologies to anyone mentioned. I jumped the conclusions from the similarity of the names.

    There are rudimentary methods in place to fend against this plus further plans for the future.
