    Ill try and put it as simplly as possible. Someone who disagrees with popular opinion on a forum is not a troll.

    If someone starts a thread on the rants and raves forum stating the Storm is crappy phone (which it is) then he should be allowed to express that opinion. Not everyone is going to love the storm especially for those with two eyes can distinguish between good and bad regardless of the brand.

    So to all the people crying troll to anyone who has something negative to say about the Storm - get over it.

    Look I have an idea. Instead of calling this section the Rants and Raves we should have the mods change it to Trolls and Fanboys.

    Then there will be no confusion or flaming.

    Ill put in the request.

    I second that motion.

    Because the Mods See No Interest In Actually Defending the Rant Posters What So Ever.

    Make a BlackBerry Bold Topic in the BlackBerry 8900 Thread and in Seconds It's Moved.

    Make A Topic In the Rants and Raves Section and it Gets Overlooked.

    While that's true, if you stick around long enough you'll see that Cereal Killer and RCCollins are indeed trolls. They just so happen to be "anti-Storm" but that has nothing to do with them being branded trolls.

    They're branded trolls because they just want attention, and will say/do anything to get it. You can certainly make a case for their comments being debate provoking, but just because someone's a troll doesn't mean that they are devoid of useful function. It just means that mommy didn't love them, or they feel a bit lacking in their "manhood", and so they convince themselves that making a complete arse of themselves on Internet forums, IRC chat rooms, and anywhere else people congregate, will compensate for these things.

    Correction, a troll is a attention ***** who offers nothing to a discussion or refuses to have a intelligent discussion without it turning into a flame war. Trolls tend to cling to the smallest things possible for an argument

    No one cares that you hate your phone. You can come in and lay it out on the table why you like or hate the phone but if you don't listen or keep a level head your going to get ripped a new one.

    Definition of rant:

    –verb (used without object) 1. to speak or declaim extravagantly or violently; talk in a wild or vehement way; rave: The demagogue ranted for hours.

    –verb (used with object) 2. to utter or declaim in a ranting manner.

    –noun 3. ranting, extravagant, or violent declamation. 4. a ranting utterance.

    Sounds like your not talking about trolling.

    Sounds like your talking about ranting-

    And where are we again?

    In the RANTS and RAVES Sub Forum.

    Whether They Crucify Them Or Not - People Will Continue To Post.

    Since November People Have Been Complaining, Whether There was a dedicated Rant Sub forum-

    And Nothing Has Changed.

    I Guess We Could Always Fantasize Though.

    Well, it's been obvious on the 9500/9530 boards here that trolls a plenty are around us...some of the claims of issues with the Storm are legit. Others are just borderline inane, asinine and not true or extreme exaggerations of legit claims. It's too easy to make a "profile" here that does not get validated in any way and then go on a rampage stirring up the masses by posting inflammatory statements where the phone is concerned. And mainly those people would be iPhone fanboys living in their moms basement with way too much time on their hands...because you don't see anything like this on any of the other BB model boards on here, just the ones related to the Storm.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Atleast Until a Decent Official OS Gets Released...

    I can't wait until then, I want to be able to Love my Storm.

    When That Happens I'll Be the First One to Proclaim It's Greatness.

    But Fortunately, I Don't Have a Sheep Mentality-

    I calls them like I sees Them.

    The real question is... Why Are You All About Title Case?
    What the Heck is that Supposed to Mean?

    I Understand Drifter, And I Think I Give Off the Wrong Impression On These Boards-

    I Love RIM, and my BlackBerry's-

    This is Why I Feel So Let Down By The Storm.

    I Can't Wait Until There Is A Good OS Update-

    But Until Then, I Can't Lie, Or Hide My Feelings.

    The Truth, Is The Truth-

    And My Truth, Is My Truth.

    It May Not Be For Everyone, But My Device Stinks-

    And I Can Only Go By My Device.

    Usually People Who Show Up As Typing Title Case Are Typing In All Caps.

    ^^ The board software automatically knocks it down.

    Okay- So Is It Wrong If I Like To Use Caps?

    I Don't See Why It Should Interfere Or Make It Difficult To Understand My Posts.

    Is This A Pet Peeve Of Yours?
