What specifically is difficult about it?

Michael, how do you know what I get or don't get?
On forums like this I always keep in mind that comments are well intentioned and sincere.

I think it's fine that you blogged about final and testing based on your knowledge at the time - it's helped all of us to learn something, we have the opportunity to learn about JMockit.
Now, based on this new information, you've agreed that the statement you made on the object mentor blog is not correct.
Do you think it's appropriate to update the object mentor and artima blog entries with a correction so that future readers will not be misled?
