Default Re: False and misleading prices on front page, please stop it.

Having ignored this site for awhile since this thread had been overrun by flaming idiots looking for a chance to be ass-hats, I missed Mike's fix on the front page where he has started putting the mention of rebates in the prices that are affected by such. Thank you, Mike for fixing that. It's appreciated that you addressed this. If you were offended by the way I came off, sorry, but it felt wrong and needed to be addressed instead of blown off.

And no thank you to the ass-hats who had to be such flaming *****heads about a valid problem that was obviously real enough to be addressed and fixed. To those of you who thought it was fun, I just wish there was a middle finger smiley, because that's all that your flames were worth in response.

Are you finally done then? Can you just go and not bother us anymore? Perhaps there's another message board out there you could go and get banned from?

Sigh... If there would be any claim, it would be with price grabber, and not nVnews. It's not Mike's job to do Price Grabber's research for him. Which if one really wants to take a legal bent on things, would also bring up the issue of crimminal intent as well as motive, not to mention just who it is who is creating those price lists in the first place. Fact is, Mike doesn't have either, which itself would weaken a case who could be made, while bringing up the issue of who exactly one's complaint is against.

Now you can sit here and flame the site, or you can actually take the time to look at these lists more carefully and see who is providing them. Then a well worded "I noticed your ad on X site. Only problem is that the price lists are off whenver I get there" might get more attention.

Edit: I just read further into this thread, and the one you posted at Rage3d. A few things:

1. The prices were accurate after all. This is no better then the one tech support horror story where a person called up a floppy drive company and accused them of selling defective products and how he'd call the DA to the tech support representative. It turned out that he failed to pull down the write protect tab so the floppies could be written to. Of course when the support person pointed this out, no appology for going ape****, or threatening to send the legal begals after them

2. Your behaviour in all of this makes it appear [b]as if you had ulterior motives, and your real angst wasn't about price grabber; but that was just an excuse to try to start something else. Posts that moriarity has made on both sites leave this possibility very plausable. To that, 3 words; get a life. Life really is to short for this sorta thing...

3. When a thread is closed because of site policies, it can be rather bad form to try to drag the thing out in a continual creation of other threads, and PMing the mod to b**** about it. Neither site is under an obligation to entertain this.

And please spare me the "my rights to free speech have been infringed" angle. These are private forums, not public property. And as such, the sites very much do have a legal right to setup their policies and to enforce them.

Anyhow, I've read enough Now if only WoW would come back up so I could complete that quest I was on before it came down for weekly maitenance.
