I also will have Ed fight to his death to defend our free speech rights!
Well thought out posts, and well written posts make for interesting reading. So far, the majority of users have attempted to contribute in a meaningful way. That is what makes this site a valuable resource. The annoying posts are still the minority at this site. I have not really come across any posts that could be considered abusive.
With some gentle editorial oversight by the admin it will hopefully remain this way!
i believe in free speech also, but you should go post in your own forums! don't come to another and bash their opinions and views on their computer... I as a mac user don't care about the PC platform and that's why I post here.... to hear news and information on the MAC... not the PC... so don't bring your PC propaganda here... go flaunt your specs on a PC forum...
If they feel the need to direct negative attention to themselves, then so be it. The opinions that I respect around here are of those who have either a true intrest in the Mac, or those who have real knowlege of the platform and try to help those of us who have questions. Negative posts are just speed bumps to get to the true knowlege contained on the forum
This site is about news and community. These people don't promote anything having to do with news, they just stir up trouble. If I wanted controversy I would go to my little sister's bookmarks "teen" or amihotornot.com. Intelligent conversation is shot down by immature whining. I don't think they should leave but please respect the people here who actually do think different, unlike 95% of the market share.
and the people that think different are really happy for their new product!
would you envision a DELL or a COMPAQ that even looks similar?! well... give dell 1 year to create a prototype copy, 1 year to actually build the thing, 2 years to try to market it and return a profit from R&D costs, and by then, iMac G5 will be available! and it all goes back to the drawing board...
You have to understand that he is most likely not liked (or paid much attention to) in PC/Windows forms. Here he is noticed at least (though not in a positive way). It is quite sad if you ask me. You should read some of his past post, talking about a guy with some serious problems... wow!
You do have to feel sorry for anyone who willingly ask for the abuse that he gets in this forum. I mean think how bad his life must really be if he LIKES spending time here.
