Angry I can't believe the thread was locked.

Right or wrong Pelly might have been, but if people aren't allowed to express their opinions in the FEEDBACK forum, then this place is a pure joke.

Joe might have taken it to heart too much. ATi might have lied. The moon might actually be made out of cheese. It doesn't matter. Where the hell else are people going to provide FEEDBACK if the mods ignore direct quesitons, call members trolls for expressing their opinions, brush aside any criticism, delete "moved to" redirect threads to remove criticism from public view, and close threads to stop someone from seeking an answer?

When you continue to post the same information...time and time again...regardless of the fact that you've made your point known...that constitutes action of some sort by the mods...

I believe everyone's point was made...regardless of how we all feel...this "situation" is old news.....( aka: no amount of complaining is going to make a difference )

Let's pick up the pieces of our broken lives and find a way to move on...



This is the last time I am going to post about this...I suggest we all do the same...

Matthy made the reason perfectly clear:

He posted something from a reputible site, that's the end, give it a rest...no one here has any moral obligation to do jack squat! Go start your own site if you feel that way...We'll post to the contrary when ATi has a DDR2 card on the shelves...buh-bye
The "facts" or whatever have been dragged out over and over again. The same information has been posted repeatedly. Live and let die, folks.

If I see anything more from anyone on this, be it from pelly, Joe Cool, anyone the thread will be locked no questions asked. Dig?

The reason is clear: stop beating a dead horse, it was getting on a rather personal level, and that can be achieved through PM's.

EDIT: As to deleted 'moved to' redirect links, there is no such thing. You can either make a link to the new location or just move the thread without the user knowing where it landed. I do that on purpose to let the poster know that it belonged in other obvious forum. If it's hard to choose which forum it should be moved to, I leave a redirect link. Just because Joe Cool said "no one visits feedback forum" doesn't mean he can post wherever he wants to. Also blaming us mods for deleting his lovely threads isn't nice either since he could have checked other forums, or just PM us and ask nicely.

If there's one way to get on all the mods' bad sides it's cr@p like this. Word to the wise. Don't do it, simple as that.

Always remember, you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.

glad to know I am of some entertainment value.

On a serious note, I think you guys need to seriously consider what the purpose of a feeback forum is. Do you really think it is appropriate for mods to end an argument by closing a thread in feedback? Are members supposed to just post their opinion, let the mods call them a troll, and then go on with life as usual? Most people have just a bit of pride.

Personally, I think the particular argument had gone on long enough. I saw no reason to post further in that thread. But closing it really disturbs me. And now there's talk of PM's instead of open discussion? What, the staff/mods can't be criticized on public? Oh... perhaps you meant Pelly should have PM's Joe that he is a troll, instead of calling him that in public? Yes... that must have been it.

Look, I'm a mod at a site, and I wouldn't dream of trampling on someone like that. If a thread is being beaten to death in an off (or on) topic forum, well... it would have to degenerate into pure flaming or spamming before I would close it. But a discussion in a feedback forum? As long as members have opinions, they are free to express them, whether I like them or not, or am tired of them or not. It's not my place to just say "this is old, I'm tired of hearing about it, shut up, end of story" and it really shouldn't be yours either.

A misunderstanding then. Glad to know that's how it works.
