Do you really think hammer and boyd are ACTUALLY NICE to people who come in with problems to this forum? lets think of the past 3 years. I mean seriously. The usual reply is "i own 4,5,6, pi+10 to the 3rd alienwares and i've never had a problem or they fixed it by sending me something, or basically you're a liar or just plain wrong." Let's think about it critically for a second. Cya maybe next week!
When I was brand new here, I got into it with Hammer and Boyd in the Voodoo/Kimble thread.
Over time though, I've seen a lot of what sets those guys off: n00bs posting in the AW forums with warnings not to buy AW products, complaints about silly things for which the posters never allowed AW a chance to rectify, and complaints from folks who haven't yet even bothered to inform AW that a problem exists and go ballistic because their new machines aren't absolutely perfect.
OTOH, Hammer in particular, can be extremely helpful when simply presented with an issue and asked for help. The guy really knows his AW "stuff." You're right, though, like most people who are fans of particular brands, he can be very . . . loyal?
I can go off when I hear people knock some of my own favorites. The other day my gf's sister said something really dumb: "Starbucks mocha is NOT the greatest coffee drink on the planet." Damn, did she get an earful for that!
