    This is going to get closed because people in these forums only apply rules to outsiders

    I have been here for years and I see today that because I dont play your game I get no respect and threads get closed without any warning and people are making threats and name calling and the person doing it is allowed because he is one of the gang.

    If thats the case ban me I really dont care I have been part of these forums for longer then the other party involved but somehow seeing how this is being handled I would rather be banned then be part of this group.

    The thread was closed because your argument with whoever has no business being in the public forums. I don't know what you thought the moderators should have done ... to let it go on?

    I had a poll he brings the argument he was allowed and is allowed to make threats and name call and there was nothing wrong with the poll it was only because he and a few of his friends take offence to the fact I dont care what the mods do as long as it is same rules for all involved and I see posts all over with him name calling and makeing threats funny huh

    First off your poll did not have any way of expressing if the person thinks that it's o.k. to use hacked or tweaked firmware and that they thought it was not stealing.

    It is not black and white.

    Second it is the same as with a car. You buy a new car and the warranty state to not change anything on it or to modify the engine or the computer with a hot/tweaked chip or it will void your warranty.

    The car was bought and paid for by you. It is not intellectual property because it is not software. It does use software in the computer but not the car itself. Just like hardware for a computer DVD drive Video card or whatever. You tweak Your CPU every day to get the most out of it. Is that stealing? I don't think so. I paid for it and if I blow it up it's on me. If I tweak my DVD drive to make it better that's up to me. If I screw it up in the process then I will have to go out and buy a new one. But the way you set up your poll was wrong. It did not give enough choices and for that people would feel that it is biased.

    Give more choices to make it more open and the dicusions can be better for all. But to get in a huff about it is wrong. Now I didn't close your thread but I understand why.

    If you want create another thread but give more choices to vote on. You make it sound like to you it was stealing anyway you sliced it. Or you had to go out and buy the more expensive one. Hell, I would go out and buy a cheaper model of car and tweak it to my liking and if I destroyed it then it's on me. Same applies to the hardware in my box. If you are content with things being status quo then fine. I tweak.

    Kermit, just to make it clear, nobody here is part of any gang. :)
    The thread was getting completely out of hand. There was no better alternative than to lock it. If you need to discuss the matter further, please do it via PM with the moderator(s) involved.

    Part of the gang, lol. There's no gang, clique, club, league, pack or anything else. At least non that I'm involved with (although that maybe for different reasons). But the bottom line is if I wasn't fast alseep I'd bust everyones ass!

    There was the choice I dont care as long as I get away with it .. thats a very easy choice to make and left everyone a chance to vote without any camp just plain and simple did not care was a choice.

    And as for the name calling ? and Threats? yes well not one single word was said about that .
