I know you're not one of the rabid fanboy focus group types, I just hate the way nv does this viral marketing through people. This doesn't mean that I have a problem with you or what you post, you're stuff is pretty fair and on the level, but in general I still have a problem with hype posts just to get peoples hopes up about a delayed product.
ATi does almost exactly the same thing, except they don't own up to it. Ever heard of "High Road"? Places like Anandtech & B3D are full of their viral marketers and posters.
