Yep. I also used to suspect that some of the posts supporting JBoss (and fudding Sun) were astroturf.
And it appears <A HREF="http://yro.slashdot.org/yro/04/05/18/2043206.shtml?tid=108" title="slashdot.org">I was right</a slashdot.org>.
Of course we all know that Microsoft does it. The proof of that has come out many times (e.g. the Barkto affair, the Microsoft documents leaked to the L.A. times, the evidence in the DR-DOS case, and so on).
So it would appear that your only problem is with the fact that I believe that Trolltech also uses astroturf.
BTW, you should note that I didn't say that this article is astroturf. I just said it wouldn't surprise me.
