    He's the guy that we love to hate. Or hate to love, can't tell :p

    Either way, he's the guy we can point the finger at if sh*t hits the fan. We need him :laugh:

    The thread on guru3D is officially gone. For those who want more proof a moderator has been asked so that I can post a dump of the convo.

    As for more reasoning why TPU is bad mouthed this has come up in conversation with me to post in this thread specifically.

    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2748937&postcount=125

    This part specifically...Mind you I stayed out of the windows 8 thread since it has become very opinionated and loud with little to no reference to back shit up. In fact I believe TPU's own comparison was tossed out by a certain member...

    I think that the regular posters are still around and just lurk more. You get tired of answering the same old questions over and over again.

    And I have noticed the recession too. Less people wanting to buy (not just computers), and it seems as though low-balling is a new past time.
    I used fold all the time. But the electric bill kills me now. :mad: That and I don't have any Nvidia GPUs' worthy of folding.

    Sorry but even I draw the line at dead kid jokes.....that and I got bored of the easy trolling at GN. It wasn't even a challenge anymore.

    As for TPU haters well..........HATERS GONNA HATE! :laugh:

    Most people end up feeling 'righteous' about something, and when they do, and have the opportunity to communicate it, they end up trying to shove it down someone's throat. Figuratively speaking, of course. Oh so much easier when you don't have to say it to that other person's face.

    It's an even more powerful compulsion when there's some reasoning behind it, that at least somehow backs up the 'righteous' feeling.
