    What exactly do you mean by "stakeholders"? That's a misleading statement in the extreme, because if it's only for people who hold stock then a lot of people are in for some very nasty surprises around here.
    Stakeholder != stockholder

    Also, bacon.

    A stakeholder is not necessarily a stockholder (shareholder) but a stockholder is by definition a stakeholder. If you are still confused read a project management book or listen to a government committee meeting with members of the public and other interested parties. "Stakeholder, an entity that can be affected by the results of that in which they are said to be stakeholders, i.e., that in which they have a stake." ---> Stakeholder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You could have cooked the bacon instead of serving it raw. (licks fingers, smacks lips)

    While I find threads get hostile do to some aggressive members who like to bash anything non-RIM, I can say anytime I have posted a thread asking a question, people here have been extremely helpful. It might help that I do a search, or add a post to similar active threads rather than just blindly posting though.

    I guess people just have to remember that there are people who have never used a forum before though. Telling them to use the search, or pointing them in the right direction takes about as long as calling them names lol.

    Generally, when one looks at the member asking the question, a post count is of help, as some are not regular contributors or new. I've not jumped at anyone that didn't have it coming, because I remember being new and totally tech illiterate. I see people that post who it is obvious don't use English as their mother tongue, so they may not know how to phrase the question they're asking. It takes a little time on a forum to know which questions to ask. I've seen people drive forum members crazy dealing witha problem like a phone that was fubar after a repair and express frustration, when they themselves were looking at the wrong angle.

    When I first started a CB, I got maybe two responses to my Hello post. Ok, that didn't seem to go so well. But I shrugged it off and dove in, and when I'm working the boards, when I see a newbie, I post a greeting and welcome aboard. Seems trivial to busy members, I understand some don't care about niceties, but people that aren't obviously here to start trouble should be welcomed. I'm thankful of the other members that take the time to do this, also.

    It doesn't take a lot to make the member experience either hellish or happy. Folks should remember that golden rule, treat others as you'd wish to be treated.

    This is true, and I'm thinking primarily of newbies....

    Other folks should be smacked around with a rotten halibut....
    And you'd do that just for the halibut, wouldn't you?

    In my experience here there is about the same level of aggression and fanaticism here as on the apple websites. It is extremely off putting when people ask questions or continually call others "stupid" for getting other phones. I came here for a community and have found a click. Anyone asks any questions that even remotely brings down Blackberry from Godhood, you get called a troll.

    I can give you hints on what medications to use for the wounds. They will heal and you will develop an immunity to even the worst fanboys' venom.
    And then you will have won. Their desperation and irrationality will have become evident.

    You're right OP. This is exactly the type of response we need to discourage, because it makes people reluctant to post. If someone has a rumour, they are browbeaten if their rumour doesn't turn out to be correct. Sure, there are those who are trolls posting "joke" rumours but even then, hostile responses just 'feed the troll'. So, we should all raise the level of discourse here.

    I would consider the linked thread very tame in terms of what tends to be posted around here.
