finally some1 commented on this....


I have no problem with it, becuase now I just ignore all of it...


but the point of listing a really low price is so more ppl click and open the link which equals more page views and more traffic ... which equals more money paid to nvnews.net because more ppl go to pricegrabber

its not the fact that he commented on it, its the fact that hes threatening the site itself. most price search engines have this very same deal, the problem lies in the fact that alot of sites change there prices overnight while the spider program hasnt reached and scanned there site...if this was malicus then i would say he has a point, but mikec doesnt sit around think how to screw his users over for a few pennies, while at the same time trying to protect the users from scammers by going out of his way and verifing them for sales.

I didn't threaten ANYBODY. I said something needs to be done, and if TALKING about it is a threat, then you must be buddies with George Bush. The only reason I'm talking about it on other forums is because of the very thing that happened here, flamers trying to pee on a valid point.

The Pricegrabber function is NOT a helpful function for this site in it's current incarnation and needs fixing or it looks VERY bad. I think that much is obvious to anybody with a REASONABLE mind who isn't an immature fanboy and flamer.

EXACTLY!!! And wether meant to be or not, Nvnews is commiting fraudulent behavior. Wether it's against the law or not is immaterial or SHOULD be to this site's staff seeing as it should be a matter of PRIDE to either keep it up to date and fixed, or not do it (those pricegrabber posts on the news page) at all. Period. I wasn't saying I'M going to be the one who reports anything to the ISP, but what if they DO find out? And it IS the right thing to do to INSIST that this be fixed or stopped.

Flamers be damned, I'd fix it myself if given the chance! Hell, I don't HONESTLY believe Mike is doing this knowingly, but it IS something that seems dishonest to leave alone once made aware of, and it is a little tough to swallow that it's not known about and is just being ignored because it SEEMS to be beneficial to the site. But it's NOT. That's an illusion and the fact is it's been noticed by quite a few others I've talked to on other forums. This isn't "Nvnews bashing", this is an honest attempt to get the staff off their butts and fix a big problem that left unchecked WILL get much uglier eventually when somebody less concerned for this site's welfare doesn't bother to try to address this with you and goes STRAIGHT to your ISP and gets this place shut down or threatened to be shut down. That would suck as I consider Nvnews a great place for info on my vid card and would hate to see that happen. I'm also frustrated rightfully for wasting time clicking links Mike posted that are pointless seeing as the REAL prices are right below my post and that seems pretty up to the moment accurate...

Do you have anything actually USEFUL to contribute or are you just trolling for amusement? Or is that just how you get your post count so high, trolling threads with useless nastiness?

You have no clue of the kind of legal resources it would take to get an ISP to shut a site down. It would take a legal team costing millions of dollars. So unless Intel or Microsoft have a problem with nVNews, this little fantasy of yours isn't a reality.

LOL I'd like to know exactly how you plan on reporting nVNews to it's host?

Do you even know who hosts this website? No.

Do you have an expensive lawyer whom you pay $500 an hour to? Because if you don't the host won't even respond to your complaint. I'm assuming a "no" for that one too?

My point is you have no leverage, no power, and no authority whatsoever so quit acting like you do.

Ahhhh, your too weak minded to understand even a part of whats going on so I'll forgive your attempts to derail this thread. I also won't be pulled down to your level of flaming trolling as it's pretty ugly and somehow just shows ones immaturity. Seeing as you can't find or quote any part of what I said say I was going to report anybody beyond making forum posts in other forums, your putting words in my mouth and showing no class at all. Once again, forgivable, I understand why your attacking like you are, you'll grow out of it eventually.
