    I'm not the administrator from Tweakers.net, but lately alot of users are experiencing a link towards a webshop with a Quadcore CPU from Intel whenever you click on a link thats posted by gathering.tweakers.net. When you copy this link into your browser, nothing is wrong.

    Why is this measure being taken? Tweakers.net is proberly one of the best dutch community's regardless with Computers and Tech and all at a high level.

    Example: http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/1121/TechPowerUp_Radeon_Bios_Editor_v1.11.html in that forum leads to http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=80862&prodlist=shopping :eek:

    Because the people who are administrators, Femme or whoever, refuse to remove leaked data. That's why a certain person who is an administrator here figured he'd make some money off that refusal of cooperation.

    Femme is not responsible of the newsposts that are being submitted. Can you give me such a thread where this is going on in what you say? And if it's leaked, how come they are using Techpowerup as a source from their article? I think you will need to contact the person who posted that thread.

    http://tweakers.net/nieuws/53995/eerste-benchmarks-gtx280-opgedoken.html Refers towards techpowerup, i'm not sure if this is such an article but by clicking on the 'Door Robin Vreuls' for example will lead you towards his profile & Email-adres to contact him.

    Femme is not really responsible for that task of news-submits ;)

    And nearly 95% of all the visitors on tweakers.net are dutch, they wont really buy stuff outside europe since taxes are being charged for importing stuff from the outside of EU. it's not worth it for an Intel CPU ;)

    Alot of users and me , thank you for that ;)
