For Zarquon's sake. Some of you still don't get it.
The poll in its published form was daft because all it did is fuel the fire and incite flame wars. If a member had posted the very same poll on the forum the topic would have been closed and the member warned. Double standards much?
It also made Neowin look rather silly to visitors. Can that be what the news staff is after? Attract visitors with troll-ish headlines for the sake of getting more clicks? I think not. I was under the assumption that the editors have at least some journalistic standards.
And lastly, it's regardless of which company the poll had been about. Apple, Google, MS -. the way it was asked would have been daft all the same.
Let me tell you something. The poll was not there to fuel the fire and incite flame wars. The poll was all fine until the angry fanboises and the whiners came here and started to cry like a baby because they don't like to hear bad things about their loved company. That's the problem.
If you feel the question is there to wake up trolls, then it's the trolls problem for not being able to control them self and act like a normal person.

Its called learning to tolerate others and their views...whether you like it or not. I am sure there are things you do that others do not like. Goes back to what my parents told me when growing up...dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all. Yes, sometimes things get out of hand ,but when it happens more often than not...then you have a problem.
I know people who likes American Idol, Soap Operas, Bad Girls Club, and yes,,,WWE. To each their own. They are not making me watch it or forcing it on others, so it really doesnt impact me.
And people trolling and posting certain comments are not doing so to show their intelligence. They do so to stirr up trouble. An intelligent person would be able to post maturely without causing any kind of back lash.
Mephistopheles, this guy is also providing my point
