That's awesome work you've done!

I was also totally shocked at that comment of his, which is why I
asked him to prove his claim by doing some tests. I am confident he
cannot uphold that claim, since in my experience the files turn out
smaller most of the time. I hope we will do the tests for himself, so
he will be forced to take back his own FUD.

It's plain amazing what myths are being created and repeated on Theora!

Great effort!
