    All of this could have been avoided if they only said "regarding" or "wrt" instead of "on"

    Well, look at the bright aide, crackberry got a ton of page views yesterday.

    I must have refreshed crackberry at least 260 times yesterday.

    Crackberry made some money at least.

    With all the negativeness coming from some there won't be enough fans for a fan night whenever it is or isint. All sounds like hype to me, social network hype. Sad

    Wrong Although Im confident youre aware of the details, you appear unable or unwilling to grasp why so many people are upset with todays big announcement

    July 25, 1:25p PST RIM tweets

    BlackBerry Research In Motion
    You got it! New #BlackBerry devices are coming w/ our new OS, BlackBerry 7! Check back tmrw 4 deets on #BB7FanNight. ^CH

    July 25, 7:55p PST post on CrackBerry 9900 on Verizon.com

    July 26, around noon PST RIM announces win a new BB7 smartphone contest

    My guess is not many people knew what BlackBerry Fan Night was and after reading the tweet were expecting deets of the coming devices, not a contest. In addition for some, coupled with Verizon spiking the punch with their video slip, a lot of excitement was generated. The letdown experienced by many on this site was inevitable, if not warranted when the only thing announced was a contest to win a phone.
    uh why would the 9900 on Verizon thing have anything to do with anything?

    It's just people creating hype in their own minds. That's the problem with news aggregators and the people that rely on them, they never click on the source link. That's why people who saw the Engadget article about RIM's facebook status probably thought it was a new phone when in fact it was just alluding to Facebook 2.0 being released when the actual facebook update had no mention of a phone at all. It was just what Engadget thought it was. The tweet was perhaps badly worded but people interpreted it the way they wanted and then get whiny when it turns out they interpreted it wrong.

    So RIM tweets an ambiguous tweet about new devices coming and an announcement tomorrow. Crackberry blogs what is implied in the tweet. Crackberry users read the tweet themselves, and also feel this is an indication of device release date announcements. This ends up not being the case, and its now CrackBerry's fault for trolling its members.

    where is the logic in this?

    What is this "logic" that you speak of? They don't take too kindly to that in these parts...

    Guys, a quick question from an ignorant foreigner, but if the Blackberrys are released by the carriers ....why and what is a fan night and what's it supposed to do?

    Surely, if it's not coordinated with the carrier's it's a potential cluster**** waiting to happen?

    I'm pretty certain every mod of this site and Kevin has Twitter as well and they are one of the main reasons that I am on that site because I can look at the feed and know if anything pops up BB related w/o having to hit up CB constantly. Yea, Blackberry's own(CONFIRMED) twitter account posts something and let everyone know that they are holding this fan event and you can enter to have a chance to attend and there are also rules and regulations posted on the BB site so turn your Troll Spray around and don't hate on people for trying to just pass information along.

    Rules and Regulations for Fan Night: https://www.blackberry.com/profile/?eventId=bb7

    Just to add, I understand people may not want to join Facebook or Twitter, but to say it is false just because it is a social media site is an idiotic point of view. Social media is one of the most powerful tools in today's society, people get hired and fired because of information collected from social media. I have been on FB since I was in college, but I never thought I would join Twitter or understood it until I looked into it and saw the amount of information that you can gain by following the right people and the time frame in which you find that info out is seconds rather than hours.

    I'm at the airport and travelling for a few hours and my banhammer is in checked baggage. That is fortunate, it gives everyone time to delete insulting posts before I reach home.

    I will review the thread again later, and if I find any insults or personal jibes I WILL ban the offender without hesitation. Trolls, You have about 5 hours to clean the mess you have made. A few high profile bans usually calms things for the weekend...

    For those of us who were using the beta version, it wasn't new at all, minus the fact that you now get notifications when someone "likes" something...
