(1) For these tests, the editor invited a number of companies to
    be tested. We were not invited.

(2) During the last bake-off, we received some criticism for running
    the tests and testing our own product. There is a conflict of
    interest if we write both the benchmarking software, the caching
    software, and perform all the tests ourselves.

(3) Squid was represented by both Cobalt and Eolian. Perhaps
    you were not aware that Cobalt and Eolian are repackaged

If you'd like to see some benchmarking results for Squid under
the Datacomm-1 workload, I'd be happy to run those tests and
put it on our Web site.
