Couple of points we all need to remember:
1. Posting here is not a right...its a priviledge. So get off your stumps and put the flag back on the flagpole.
2. When you slander
people at a company on this forum, you are dragging the owners of the forum into this mess (legally) and leave them wide open for prosecution from the law. Yes...this IS America and people love to call their lawyers. Case in point a few pages back.
3. PCTorque pays hundreds of dollars a day to supply us with these message boards...their well being comes before your private war of words...Period.
4. We as mods have never said you cannot bitch, whine and moan about your less-than-favorable experiences with Alienware, their computers or services. In fact, I clearly state a few pages back that you SHOULD be posting things like this so Alienware can see what's going on and adjust their policies if needs be.
But whenever we step in and actually Moderate (Oh god, Not the Moderator Moderating
) we get all kinds of flack. But understand, we only moderate when people unknowingly put PCTorque and the integrity of these forums in jeapordy.
And those of you naming names DID JUST THAT. Whether you understand the letter of the law or not. You've violated that letter and the rules of this forum.
We've stuck with our morals from Day 1 and have built up one hell of a community in a very short time and have no intention of bending the rules.
I know of another forum that would just love to have you join up if you feel we're in the wrong.
Look at all the great things happening. Alienware is here in an official manner to help out, we've got some great members that take part on a daily basis, we're hosted by a great bunch of people that truly have a passion for computers and gaming and show no signs of membership slowing...at all.
These forums are here to stay. Are you? I hope so, I really do.
