    I was just looking at the crackberry channel on my bbm and its at 80,000 users... thats pretty good dedicated fanbase. I can only imagine the amount of clicks when someone posts an article to bgr on here... and all the crackberry people go to defend and comment on it. Examples below (and theres so many more)

    "Samsung just punched a hole in BlackBerry's firewall"
    "BlackBerry handsets are nearly extinct"
    "Here's how desperate BlackBerry really is"
    "Even with BlackBerry 10, RIM is still dead | BGR"

    Would hope people stop posting their articles and stop encouraging this kind of garbage.

    I stopped reading their garbage articles years ago, I even don't understand why anybody even bothers anymore with the stuff they're posting.

    Double-typed and posted with a BlackBerry Q10.

    Yeah, this'll work...

    BGR: "Oh Noes! I'd better start finding nice things to say about BB, or thousands of rabid fans will go onto my website and generate traffic to keep all my advertisers happy and generate revenue and publicity for me... Oh, wait..."

    BGR must thank heaven for the on-going trainwreck that is BB. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

    Will never work, folks here love to spam the comments on that site way too much to ever boycott it. Pretty sure most of BGR's click revenue comes from PO'd Crackberrians.

    I think a boycott thread has come up every month since BB10's release. But hey, maybe 14th time's the charm?

    People have been wanting to do this for years in CrackBerry, however the ones that start the threads were just over there giving that clown Geller page hits. Just stop going.

    It is inevitable though that we will get a thread about BGR BlackBerry Bashing article of the day with a link get posted here.

    Maybe some of you are too enthused with your phones. You are not hired by blackberry and shouldn't feel the need to defend it every damn day. Just let it go.


    I don't even remember going on BGR in the past umpteen years

    I've never been on that site, not even a bit curious. All my BlackBerry news or help is right here on crackberry.

    I don't know how accurate traffic websites estimates are but crackberry it says gets 3 476 500 vistors a month while BGR gets 3,312,100. Crackberry has 83 760 on its channel and 126,000 on twitter. BGR has 82 700 on its twitter. Clearly BGR more than doubles its page hits when they post up crackberry flamebait.. Im just suggesting we not fall prey to this kind of stuff.

    I think most of their revenues are over the BlackBerry fans who go in there to rage in the comments section..

    No we don't. We are big boys and girls and can make our own decisions on what we want to read about.
