    Please post things like this in the appropriate section to begin with. General Nonsense comes to mind. I did enjoy it though!:toast:

    Agreed. I disagreed with a mod at OCN and got perma banned. [h] is just flat out stuck up and biased. I mainly deal in the FS/Trade forum as they do have a great one.

    Really? Maybe some constructive criticism, but not a complete beating like they gave him. Geeezzz...

    Me too, but that is only because they got a lot of members .TPU FS forum is also getting there.






    The biggest problem there is, that they dont have avatars. Its like a bot respoding to your question post after post and the black background.

    Here at least everyone has a avatar, its like an image of that person. So when I see A girl kissing a guy, I know its Solaris, lol ;) . Fit has that star , jc has the dog, mullered has torres , erocker had something cant remember

    Yeah they were hard on him but its not like he didnt fight back.. My favorite part is when the thread turned into a political debate.

    It wasn't a total loss, as it provided us with some entertainment for the day. :toast:

    Perhaps it's his first review sample (something he didn't buy, to review)...it works like: they give him their arse product and expect him to kiss it churn out a credible review. He got too carried away, too "into" it all, got flamed.

    He opposed a lot of their review methodology and was ultimately banned for it. He was disliked for saying that ATI was currently the better video card (more/less) and some members over there hated him for it.

    I was reading that too and I was curious as well so I did some digging and found these nuggets:

    The post that got him banned
    http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1032989249#post1032989249

    Other stuff he posted
    http://www.hardforum.com/search.php?searchid=10418883

    I tell you after reading some of his more, well, passionate threads he's epic alright just not sure if it's due to meds or what. :)

    In either event, the only real good thing that comes out of there is the Monitor forum otherwise be aware there are crazy people in that house. ;)

    haha thanks for that, nice fun read. I'm going to try and find his username on google and see if he is creating havoc on other forums too .

    btw second link doesn't lead anywhere

    Probably due to it being only available to a logged in user. Sorry 'bout that forgot their search function is somewhat wonky.
