Default Re: People overestimate how many people this site bans

going along with chris here...

I enjoy the community... there are some rough spots (ie dialogue in the political forums) but name one similar forums on the internet that is open and does not have similar strife?

other than that we have over the years had good contributions and continue to get good contributions from various elements...

some people choose to blatantly violate guidelines and proper netiquette when they feel they are being slighted and it is these elements who spread FUD...

I am regularly active on www.osnn.net and www.nvnews.net... I post on a part-time basis @ r3d (enjoyable segments of the forums though the sheer number of members and the ridiculous rate @ which they post there frighten me)... b3d (knowledgeable community with the pre-requisite bad apples becoming more abundant lately but still one of the most professional forums I visit... enjoyable) and the msi and anandtech forums (both very very rarely... only when required in the case of msi's or when really really bored in the case of AT's)

the abundance of whiners on the internet is expected and chris is right saying those who scream the loudest usually are the ones that get heard...

the best thing I like here is that no matter what happens the mods do not allow the bad-mouthing of other forums as should be the case...

we may not always like each other or agree with each other but hell its fun just hammering out arguments

I love it because it's one of a few sites left, that you can talk about ANY hardware. Whether it's nVidia, ATI, Matrox.
Look at the front page and you'll see links to all the major gfx card reviews. Now goto Rage3D, and see how many nVidia reviews there are.
I like the front-page layout, and the way it's put in categories.
And we all know Mike is a cool guy who will buy whatever Mike likes, beit ATI or nVidia.
Where else do you get a fan based website, where the owner buys whatever the owner feels is best for him ?

Here's to another few years.

I'm glad you appreciate the support. This site rocks. I first came to this site to get away from the NV3x flaming but that didn't work out too well so I was convinced that NV3x was worse than R3x0. I'm glad this site is finally what it's supposed to be, an nVIDIA fansite and not the nVIDIA flamesite it was last year.

Talking Re: People overestimate how many people this site bans

It's all about being intellectually honest. People come to NvNews because we call things straight down the middle. We're not going to kiss any ass because we don't like our asses kissed. If nVidia or ATI drops the ball, we'll let you know why and in detail. Same thing if they do something right! What we won't do is let those things cloud our judgement. For example, if Nvidia or ATI drops the ball, we're not gonna get all reactionary and say, "Bah! Humbug!! Jen Hsun/Terry Makedon's children should starve!!!" or what have you.

Some websites tolerate such conduct among their staff and forum community.

We're not one of them!
We ban those people!

I thought Digi was expressing his views about stuff in another uncensored forum and Mike got pissed off and banned him from here? Digi didn't seem to know about it until afterwards?

Better add Digi to the nVNews obituary page!

he appeared to request as much on several occasions both here and elsewhere... unfortunately his psots are no longer available to hold up as proof but suffice it to say most of the regs saw it often enough...

as digi himself has said he was surprised it didn't happen sooner so obviously he was kind of expecting it

as far as the obituary page goes... some people make a bigger deal out of things than others...

Sorry, you thought wrong. Mike just obliged Digi's request.

Me wrong?!? Well, it had to happen some time.

Edit: But why was his account deleted, rather than him just being banned?
