Honestly though, it's not faith I have a problem with, it's the forcing of one's beliefs on other people. I don't care WHAT you believe, just don't try and convert me or threaten me with an afterlife in a fiery place I don't even believe exists. I have heard the excuse that "just because you don't believe it exists, doesn't mean it doesn't exist". The same can be said from my point of view. Just because you believe it DOES exist, doesn't meant it does.

Too bad the only real way to find out is by dying, and by then it's too late to save your ass if it actually does.
Hit the nail on the head! ... this goes to all religions though not just Christians.

No, I think it's mainly in the gen hardware and cpu, memory one. They mainly start with A > B than B, than someone calls someone else a fanboy, then they argue for 3 pages about nothing and just insult each other.

I would agree that it is probably because of the massive amount of new technology this year. The amount of new graphics cards, OSes, consoles, disc drives, and processors has everyone bent out of shape.

and an excessive amount of misinformation about things that are coming out.

intels new quad cpu, amd's new quad cpu, nvidia G80, Sony's PS3, etc, etc.

sooo much new hardware, not enough solid info = people argue about the details.

A little bit of arguing I think is good. Keeps the forums exciting and fresh.

Thank you for the straight answer. Intel vs AMD/ATI fanboys are a bit over the edge. I am trying to train myself to pick up on this and keep them in line. I am use to keeping the NVIDIA vs ATI fights under control and have a tendency to not to react to the other disagreements. I want everyone to be NVNEWS Fanboys and behave so I can get my review done. I've already lost a day and half because of Ernesto.

True, I do enjoy reading some of the speculations myself. I will focus on the CPU and Rumor Forums a bit each day. No one can accuse me of being an AMD or Intel Fanboy.

I agree arguing does not have to be a bad thing. I have noticed that several members have been going a bit overboard lately.
