Why title the news in such an inflamitory manner?
 
On the front page you make it look like someone has confirmed the X800 has been delayed. But that is not the truth. All they are doing is using the INQ to be the confirmation. But the INQ is just spreading rumors as facts just as they always do.

Easy there chief. We didn't "make it look like" anything. The headline is a direct quote of the headilne from the page that it links to (http://www.cooltechzone.com/reviews/...istory_001.php). That is no different than any of the other headlines which follow a similar fashion.

Well hell that does not change the fact that you linked to a page that is just a rumor. Based on a rumor. How much more of a bull**** article can you get.

Heh, if we (or any site of this nature for that matter) linked purely to 100%, undeniably factual stories...well, that would be a very laborious undertaking and we'd likely never get any timely news posted. Separating the wheat from the chaff in this industry is like herding cats (okay, enough cliches ;) )

We (and many, many other sites out there) link to stories from The Inquirer all the time and no one complains (at least not to the extent you are). This story is no different from those so have you ever complained about them before? I'm not trying to be snippy about this, just trying to find out where you're coming from.

I wish I was a mod and my only authority was to close stupid threads. :retard:
