False information begins with partial information. You are being held to a high standard because this is not a lesser forum.
In which case, a better, and more constructive, response on your part would have been to provide a link to the "complete truth" so the OP and others could investigate subject at their leisure.
May I suggest, perhaps you could have written "For a more detailed and complete explanation of the details regarding pre-fetch and standby memory please refer to...."
"Half the truth is less than the truth...", "False Information begins with partial information...". Cute, yes... helpful, no.
There are few posts in a technical forum that constitute a "complete response". If a user really wanted to read the the complete technical reference manual they would not post the question on a forum.
