    The members voting other members up or down results in one horrible mess. Similarly, members' infractions are between the mods and the members. No airing out of dirty laundry here, that is distasteful.

    There are other alternatives elsewhere if someone wants that kind of forum. Let members who want that go there. THIS is not THAT place. CB has more class than that trashy spectacle.

    At the risk of being reported and receiving an infraction, I'd have to say I can agree. I could get behind Qbnkelt on this . . . .

    Don't engage him, I got an infraction today for doing so. I believe that is his motive.

    You didn't quote, so I'm unaware of what was said.

    Sure there is. In fact you do not even need to argue really because it becomes very evident over time why each person is here. We can see there are posters who in addition to getting in the device debates that sometimes get out of hand, also take time to try and offer what ever help they can to folks that come here for HELP. That is at the core, after all, why this forum exists -- to be a resource for BlackBerry users. Resource implies a thing that helps one out.

    I know for example, among all the "regulars" which ones I see that help others. I expect others take note as well. That is enough for me.

    I DO wish there were the means to correct the Ignore button bug.

    This. There's no arguing with you when you get personal and claim that people that use multiple devices have no loyalty in other areas of our lives, get bored easily, and have "single child syndrome" or that women who use large devices tend to be large themselves. I'm glad you can recognize that you might be a forum bully.

    Where exactly is this track leading? Only the site designers/Kevin/mods are able to make this decision. It would make far more sense for them to be engaged directly in the thread, or have discussions with them one on one, and have polls posted by the mods/Kevin. A user posting this, regardless of standing, offers little in the way of credibility.

    I'm still waiting for your response to my question. Or is it just selective posts you answer?

    It doesn't have to lead anywhere, there's a poll still open at the top, people can still vote and make their opinion on my idea put forward.

    If it's significant enough perhaps one day the forum owner might take notice.

    I'll agree with you there. But whether they are pro-BlackBerry, anti-BlackBerry, or somewhere in between, they should be treated the same.

    It appears to me that some staunch RIM supporters feel they are somehow justified to act like a bully because they are "defending the brand" yet they will call out others for the same behaviour, but perhaps having a different opinion.

    Perhaps, and I got a warning for that. It could be shown on my profile. I did say from the start myself included.

    But getting personal means one on one insults, not an opinion about a general group of people.

    The only time I insulted anybody on this forum aka got personal I ended up with a week's ban.

    So it's ok to insult women in general, as long as the insult does not apply to one particular woman?

    The results are In ladies and gentlemen. View poll for the current opinion of the majority. Belfast's opinion has proven to be what most of us believe.

    I disagree with this. An opinion about a general group of people could DEFINITELY get personal. People could spout off about "dyk*s," "libtards," how "women belong barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen" etc and I'd definitely take that personally. Same thing goes with generalizations and assumptions about the type of person I am because I use certain devices.
