An anonymous reader writes: "An anonymous source has provided detailed evidence showing that the popular Linux news portal LinuxToday.com has been astroturfed by its own staff for almost as long as it has been owned by internet.com. In particular, the source has identified Kevin Reichard, Executive Editor of the Linux/Open Source & Internet Technology Channels at internet.com, as having allegedly posted these messages under a number of aliases on the site."
