    I have been a loyal CB member since Feb. 2010 and up until now this site has been a great resource for help and comradery, but lately this site has been nothing but negative post and comments. Even some of the moderators have come across less than fair when it comes to RIM and BB bashing. It’s a shame that such a great site has fallen by the way side. I hope that Kevin reads this post and takes action, because true and loyal members are leave for other sites that won’t tolerate such nonsense. So with that said CB get you act together!

    ** Update from Kevin -- > I read this, here's my post... it's wayyy down the thread http://forums.crackberry.com/site-qu...ml#post7548113 **

    You do realize whats going on in the mobile market these days do you?

    "inflitrated". you're assuming that the negative discussions around RIM are because someone from outside is trying to inject themselves and their agenda into the forum?

    Perhaps, the more realistic, and actual story is that RIM isn't doing well. They're bleeding money, and they've made promises that they have failed to keep time and time again. They have a dead lame duck platform that nobody wants, And a new platform that has a streetdate of "Soon™" for the last 2 years.

    There's no conspiracy here. People are getting fed up. This is a discussion site for RIM. if you believe that nothing negative should ever be posted, and that only mindless fanboys should be spouting that "Stay calm and stay bold" should mean everyone smiles and pretends everthing is perfect, than You my friend are in the wrong place.

    I can agree that RIM is doing very bad in regards to their management and marketing of their products. But the quality and workmanship of the product itself is unmatched. Secondly there is a big difference in complaining and bashing! I am referencing the bashing which is totally uncalled for! Sorry......

    When any company loses over 75% of their market value in a year, some bashing is natural. Remember, it's just a phone and this is just a website. When people get emotionally involved (tell Michael this is business, I always liked him) it gets ugly.

    At the end of the day, people pick what posts to read. I've been here a "while". I wouldn't say the bashing has increased. If anything I think it has decreased since I joined.

    As for Crackberry, it is defined by its userbase. Not the other way around. Just saying

    I somewhat agree with OP, back in the day this place was happier. I have been here but for a "minute." There seems to be, yet still, a lot of trolling and pot stirring. I like my news objective and on point. Do I view this Rim situation with rose colored glasses...no. Am I all for RWO.... yeah. I find myself[YT][/YT] reading more of the content contributed by the staff peeps of CB rather than the member conten,t cause the source 16 people removed, doomsday naysayers, and all round bung holes that camp out in these forums is a definite turn off.

    you both are on Apple's wages now and want to infiltrate CB!

    so please stick to the topic - plain accusations made.

    anyway, what the heck do you both expect from a forum?
    its a melting pot of all kind of people including spies and lurkers.
    sometimes even psychopaths who run with guns into schools.

    This is the exact kind of post that the OP is talking about and really frosts my cookies. There's a HUGE difference between not excluding anything negative and incessant negativity. Considering this is a BLACKBERRY SITE, forgetting for the moment the need by so many to constantly reiterate the same old and tired criticisms, when the hottest and most read threads are all negative, one might get the impression that something is amiss just a little.

    This forum is NOT about the whole mobile market, it's about BlackBerry. Nonetheless, we are all very aware of the challenges RIM is facing and the missteps that got us here. I.e., we KNOW everything is not fine and rosy. If you think this is where everybody should come to do nothing but whine and complain about every excruciating detail of what they think is wrong with the company, its products and its customers, then maybe you are in the wrong place.

    They are... Which is why bad behavior on BOTH sides gets dealt with. You don't get a pass because you typed your post on a BB.

    And yes, I have a SGS 3 (not 2), a month ago I owned a 9900 and I still own a 8130 and 8330 and sell Berrys. Your point?

    I'm sorry...what? I for one understand completely what to expect from a forum. Which why I tend to let sh!t ride. People are entitled to their opinions you say Rim's world is crumbling or that Iwhatever is Jesus in a phone or tablet...dude I do not care. What I do care about is the constant trolling and negativity that has permeated this forum for far too long. If I was the main guy in charge those people and those with bashing bullsh!t would be booted for sure, but that is not sensible. So instead, I read what I want from CB and ignore the usless troll dung.
