I just don't understand why people have issues with any mention of Stardock on Neowins pages
I don't think anyone has an issue at all. Heck, I'd more than welcome a sidebar area dedicated to Stardock, thanks to their awesome support of the site. I like their products, I like their blog posts. I think it's the LACK of mention of Stardock that is causing some people (1 person?) some concern here. Personally, I don't feel that Stardock have ever received preferential treatment over other such companies, and have basically shelled out time and cost for very little return.
We're about to shell out over $8000 in hardware upgrades for the site, and Stardock is carrying out that work for us (but not paying for it, that is covered by us)
As a subscriber I am in awe that the money is being spent on this - astounded that so much can be raised from subscriptions. Applauded.
if you don't like that I'm sure there are other places that will happily accommodate you.
While it is your site, and not a democracy, that's a shame to say to a subscriber and member who has been here nearly 10 years for offering a little feedback
