Ever read one of Mike's reviews, they are completly fair.

No and by making that statement you have just crammed your argument in the toilet. No one gets banned because they think differently. They get banned for been @rseholes and complete pricks but never because they have a different view.

Good god are you ignorant? Do you remember when the first FX reviews came out? Did we censor all those that showed the FX in bad light? NO we posted them all ffs

Allow me to cry you a river for your poor bleading heart, watching? here it comes >>>>> <<<<<

my comment was addressing something [eNv]-LORD-eX-Bu posted and in context... it is not meant to represent that the mods here are not doing a good job...

his post:

Quote:
why do you ATI fan boys keep posting this BS flamebait, you don't like it here, GET YOUR ASS OUT!!! Go somewhere else, quit bitching. I don't give a damn what card you own, you damn fanboys are worse than diarreah
and my response is posted above...

now beyond that...

my post :

your post :

Quote:

if you had cared to READ the POST... you would have realised I was talking about rage3d NOT nvNEWs...

the remainder of the quotes you had involving me I will stand by

I dont mind being quoted and mistakes being pointed out... I just don't like being quoted and mis-represented with the flow of my text not being taken as what it was meant to be...

now moving on....

the reason I made the comment about posting of news... is perhaps related to some things posted immediately and others not... however I have mentioned this in another thread... that I am not going to hold newsposters responsible for this as I know how it can be sometimes... we all have lives... and I am sure that the news will be posted as has been done before...

you are going to have one extremely bland forum then m8...
he actually didn't say anything about banning them. he just said they should get out.

and actually i agree. i'm tired of hearing people whine about what they think nV News should be like. nV News is nV News. it is run and operated by MikeC. and he can do whatever the hell he wants with the site because he pays for it and decides who "works" here.

this is a fan site run by people in their spare time who get no personal gain out of it. do people not realize the news posters have lives and may not feel like or be able to post everything, or that they are human and can miss some stories?

i for one never would have posted that. but i'm sure if it wasn't posted people would have asked why it wasn't on the front page.

Quote:
I don't think anyone would expect an unbiased review out of Rage 3D, perhaps that is why it was not given a 5600 review card by ATI, even with honest numbers it would not be a fair review, how could it be?

Are you saying that I should expect unbiased reviews from Nvnews even though it seems in the last few they have taken on a noticeably biased slant?
i agree. i wouldn't expect Rage3D to put out an unbiased review of an nvidia card. however, i wouldn't say it's impossible. it honestly isn't that hard to write a review/preview that is strictly objective. the catch is that people don't want objective reviews. they want to know what the author thinks about the subject and any inside information he can share.

if you read the forums you will see that many of the moderators have not been happy with nvidia lately. many of those people post news on the front page. why would they be more biased on the front page than in the forums?

Default Heh-heh-heh.

I think I'll join in on the Yelapaboy bashing fest, this place is worth sticking up for.

nVnews has been REMARKABLY cool about the whole FX thing, and I for one have no reasons to really bicht about the job anyone is doing here.

If'n y'all wanna start trouble I agree with the R3D suggestion, they'll oblige you over there no problem. (I promise, I'll make sure of it. )

But don't go trying to stir up muck and hard-feelings here that just don't exist please, it's unproductive and annoying. No one wants to play your game, no one is gonna step up and back you up.

This is nVnews, they mostly deal with news here. There ain't a whole lot of fanboyism in any of the people who run this site, IMHO.

"Off my favorites list if this keeps up"

You sound like a paying customer complaining about a commercial service. This site is free. You are not a customer. You are a visitor. No-one is forcing you to come here and you have no right to make demands as to its content. It would be like you inviting me to visit your home and me rudely saying "either you change this wallpaper or i'm not coming back". You would be showing me the door.

If Yelapaboy could remove all the negative things in his post and just come out say it, "Is nV News a Nvidia fan based site?" I think you would of got a better answer. Plus if you have to ask if nV News is a fan site to begin with, well.. Hehehe. Just look at the title of the site Yelapaboy.

What's ironic is no one has really answered his question. Is nV News a Nvidia based fan site or not? But Yelapaboy, if you have to ask if this is a fan site, then apparently you haven't been coming here often as it's plain as day that nV News is geared toward Nvidia news. Heh. Hence the name of the site bro.

Heh, after wading through my email that suggests among other things my lower unit is too small, I have credit that needs fixing, a house that need remortgaging, and a picture from what appears to be a 35 year-old heroin addict with pig-tails who calls herself a teen and wants me to visit her site, I have to come here and get bashed? Woe is me!

I really wasn't trying to bait anybody but I was more circumspect than I should have been.

I guess what I really wanted to know was not whether or not this is a fan-site but whether or not Nvidia is putting the screws on sites such as Nvnews and 3Dgpu to toe the line as I had noticed a distinct skewing and selectivity of news posts at both sites recently. I guess this really shouldn't bother me as both sites have excellent message boards that truly are worth visiting but if Nvidia is in fact doing so it does chafe my rear end.

Oh yeah and "Off my favorites list if this keeps up" well, sometimes I say stupid things.
