Listen, if it's such a problem to you then leave. There's a million other pc hardware sites. If this one doesn't suit your fancy then just leave.

criminal behavior? lmfao. You don't know JACK **** about the law little boy. I'd love to see you try to actually do something about it. If you get this pissy about a measly $60, I'd love to see your jaw drop at a lawyer bill.

lmao, the thing you fail to realize is that no one other than you really gives a crap. So go ahead and throw a temper tantrum, but just realize that you are alone in doing it.

Ah, flames to defend a wrong so your allowance of it can be ignored. You call me a troll while cussing and name calling. Lovely, grow up child, learn how to play with the adults.

Nvnews's provider and host may care that the site they're hosting is commiting fraud and not attempting to fix it.

Not so alone as you think, my poorly spoken flaming friend. The word is out. This needs to be fixed and your weak willed, poor excuse of morals won't impede that.

Great examples are ALL over the front page of lame underpricing and then actually clicking on the link leads you to NOTHING in that price at all! Average is 50 or more dollars off!

Nvnews is a great site and all, but you need to step up and take responsability for your front page postings and FIX THEM. If you can't garuntee the price you post won't be there an hour later, don't post it, it makes you look like your helping these companies bait and switch. That's NOT how I think you want to look. Mike C. is the primary offender of this. Don't damn well post what you can't back up. I'm VERY tired of clicking your links to a supposed good price only to find it DOESN'T exist. Essentially, that is lying, evne if it's true for a few minutes, if you KNOW it won't stay that way, why post it? Making a link to this complaint over on the other forums I visit in case I get flamed/banned for pointing out a valid and solid point.

"BFG Technologies GeForce 8800 GTS Video Card from $359" - But here's what that posting leads to:
http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/searc...force+8800+gts
409, WTF is that??? 359 does NOT equal 409. That's almost criminal.

"MSI GeForce 8800GTX Video Card from $544" - But here's what that link leads to:
http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/searc...force+8800+gtx
574.99... Yeah, that's honest. BULLCRAP!

"Corsair XMS2 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Memory from $196" - And again:
http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/searc...+memorytarget=
235, hmmm, that doesn't sound very close. 30 bucks off and that one was posted YESTERDAY.

"eVGA GeForce 8800 GTX Video Card for $518" -What do I say?
http://nvnews.pricegrabber.com/searc...terid=29159637
579.99. 60 dollars off. Are you doing this on purpose? If you were a business I'd report you to the BBB and file suit!

2 examples of MANY all over your front page. Terrible, just terrible. Absolutely kills credibility. Does the hits really matter that much that you would LIE to us to generate money like this? This is a serious accusation. This must be fixed.


They look fine to me, buddy. Guess you got what you wished for. Now do yourself a favor and go outside. Right now.

pleast do tell what your going to do about it?....how about your behavour of trying to commit a crime yourself, what your doing is trying to force a service proivider to commit a denial of service to someone that doesnt provide a service and makes now claims of accuracy and in fact isnt even providing the service themselves....so please before you go around claiming something you have no idea about get your fact straight....i bet your the kind of guys that calls the cops on your neighbors claiming they stole your garbage cans on a windy day.
