Yes you were banned, but you are not banned any longer. In January I went through and tried to find all the folks that were banned in that period of time and un-ban them. If you keep in mind the huge forum traffic and constant attacks we have from people, it was not easy to tell who was doing what. So many of the accounts that were banned, were simply deleted, allowing the person to rereg with their orig nick.

One of the forums that was posting lists of bannees, was hoped to be of help, but they were not. I think the last list they posted publicly and some new sources used as fact showed over 60 nicks being banned.

I went back through the list personally, one nick at a time. Out the list of 60, I could only located 16 banned nicks and that was using a pretty wide cross reference as well.

Of those 16 , five were banned for posting porn or flaming profanities.
Yeah, I did figure that list got kind of overblown...but I also think there might have been some un-banning before you got to it in January. I don't know if that's possible or not, I have no clue how your staff/admin structure works. (And you have me sympathies on the "huge forum traffic" thing, I've been learning a LOT about that at DH lately. )

Could you please supply the link to your apology? I really didn't see it and would like to.

I am still banned because I pointed out that your PCMark score was run at sub 3.9Ghz, not 4.4Ghz like your article suggested. I posted benchmarks on the exact same hardware to prove you wrong.

Instead of "I will look into it" (would have been fine with me and everyone else), you banned me in a attempt to shut me up. This is your typical way to deal with someone who you cannot reply to with a honest answer to their face. You would rather shove it under the rug and hope it goes away. I will give you a fricken clue... "It will never go away", and you continue to burn your reader base and lose even more respect of your peers. I have more respect for vanshardware than your site.

Like I said before, I own the same hardware and I was posting higher scores than your claimed 4.4Ghz scores that you have never seen none higher...

I am moderator at xtremesystems, I know how to conduct myself in a professional manner at all times. I have been a lurker of your site for a long time, and posted very few times. Of those posts I was providing input or posting results. I was not vulgar or abusive, I posted links to back up what I was saying.

Don't bother unbanning me, I do not plan on returning. I only checked to see if what you said was true about unbanning.

Edited to respect others reading pleasure.

Look. Helpful hint to everybody. If you've got a problem with Mike, or Kyle, or Solomon, or SOMEBODY, take it to that person. Don't fling your **** around the boards. We don't want to see it because we don't care.

And Jesus, Sherlock, if you think that people think bigot is somehow vulgar or racially charged, maybe you're the one that needs to read the dictionary.

Yeh, when people throw this stuff around the boards, all sorts of mis-information and such occurs and then people take sides and it causes problems for everyone.

What I would like to know is if Mike reads all e-mail sent to him.

Anyway the only problem I have with Mike, Solomon and Kyle is that they don't post much.

First thing I realized when I started here and usually had to wait a day or two for Mike to respond to my emails is that these guys are BUSY. So, I can't really blame them for not posting like you

No disrespect intended, but what is it that is really bothering you?
Are you a mod, and if so what seems to be the problem? This stuff is real, it happened.
And if you are so perfect why are you belittling someone as you are IN YOUR POST?

Somebody registered for the sole purpose of being pissy about something that has AB-SO-LUTELY NOTHING to do with nV News. Therefore, I get angry. 'Nough said.

Things like this are ment to be done using PM/e-mail or something so that it's private.
That's the main thing he/she is trying to point out.
