I'm sorry if you think I'm talking about you. I may, I may not be.

Except you quoted me directly, so you obviously are.

I've posted news on Neowin for 5 years now and won't be giving up anytime soon (Y)

Now now children, it's been a long day and I don't feel like banning anyone (all the staff will say that is weird coming from me) - so please stop the bickering and obey the new policy.

Radish?

Indeed, it's not Andy. You are upset because I have a valid point.

And you still never commented on why you post more positive articles in the Microsoft forum than the Sony forum. I'm sure that there are an equal amount of positive articles on the net. And why waste your time posting these articles if you know that the "regulars" are just going to take offense? Why not save your breath? Why create more problems for yourself? Maybe you like the attention. Maybe you like to make your point know, because you can't live without anyone taking everything you say to heart. Well, we get it. Everyone gets it. You got your wish. You won the game of Internet life. Everyone knows what you hate about the PS3 and why it is inferior. Stop driving it into our heads, please.

How about this. Let Sony people post Sony news, and Microsoft people post Microsoft news. Do I see Audioboxer post negative articles in the Microsoft thread? Not usually, not as often as you do in the Sony thread. But I'm not here to turn this thread against you. I said what I had to say in a civilized manner. I'm finished arguing. I tried my best to be nice, but I am not a dog. I'm more than sure I can find more than a handful of people who can agree with me, and I don't need someone to say "You're so right, Alex. Don't waste your time with him, Alex (N) " to know it to be true. You're biased, and so am I, so agree to disagree, not to turn everyone to your point of view. Humans will be humans. :)

Also, one more thing, I'm not kidding, especially with what you've had to say for many many months and possibly years. ;)

Let's get one thing cleared up for the last time. I have posted news on Neowin for about 5 years now, and pretty much stayed here at Neowin for the Gamers Hangout after my inital reason for visiting the site. I use the same websites for news each day (who will occassionally use a different source themselves). Those different sources are obviously out of my control as it all depends on where interviews are performed by whatever website. If you have a problem with the negative news, it's not my fault. If you want to live in a bubble where everything is only positive go ahead and do so. You don't need to click on my topics.

As for comparing me to AB, he doesn't post news anywhere near the scale as myself or another member of the GH. He likes to post topics on game updates for the best part rather than the daily news in gaming. I cover both. So with that in mind, AB is also more of a Sony/PS3 fan than he is of other consoles and goes out of his way to post news and updates on games he is looking forward to etc. If I seen the news before him I would do the same, but he obviously visits websites I don't and they take longer to trickle down to the ones I do visit. So bearing that in mind, I post all of the Sony news which he skips out, some negative and some positive. I don't pick and choose negative topics just to cause troubles on the forum, I pick and choose the topics which are most interesting or informative.

I post more MS/360 news for the exact same reason I pointed out above that AB does for the PS3/Sony. He prefers that console and is far more interested in some of the titles than he is on other consoles. I visit Team Xbox and X360 Fanboy each day and post any news like I said which is informative or interesting.

Like I've said, I've posted news for years at Neowin and I've never ran into any problems doing so. You can be sure if there was a problem the moderators would have put a stop to it a long time ago. Instead, I've had plenty of comments from gamers (from all consoles/pc) and moderators telling me I'm doing a good job and to keep it up.

What you have pointed out though is the "regulars" in the PS3 section cannot stomach negative news and would rather take their frustration out on me because I am the one posting the news. Sorry, but I didn't write the news so you are gonna get nowhere and I will continue to post news like I have done. The same goes for a lot of the new members in there. They can't stand to see an opinion which doesn't agree with their own and they do nothing but troll and flame bait.

I suggest you read this post..

http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?show...amp;p=589614598

So you may as welll give up on this little mission to stop me posting news or comments in the Sony subform because it's not going to happen, and taking advice from a member who has 100% warn will be the last person I look to for advice.

Finally I will add I am not biased in anyway at all. Enjoying one console over another is by chance that the 360 is the console which provides me with the msot entertainment. If I was a bigger fan of the PS3 instead would you be telling me the same things now? of course not, because you've already pointed out you are biased. I own both consoles, I enjoy using both of them, one gives me more entertainment than the other and I dislike a lot of the decisions one of the companies makes. Simple.

I'm not here to turn people into Sony haters, or win any wars with members or this "internet life" crap you are talking about. I post my opinion just like anyone else. In fact the only reason you call me out is because by chance I am the one who posts a lot of news in the GH, and if it wasn't me it would be someone else. You were perfectly happy to laugh over my signatures/avatars a few weeks ago and even went out of your way to PM me about them. Perhaps it is really you who is seeking the attention here, seeing as you took the time to write a lovely big reply to call a member out?

Your post violates the new policy.

As for you, what rule have I supposedly broken here? I was not the one to call out another member, Cormier was.

I don't know, it feels like these new "special" rules are slowly turning the GH into a ghetto.

In my point of view the normal rules applied just fine to this section, it's up to the users to adapt to rules, not the other way around.

Each and everyday that goes by, more and more types of discussion are becoming taboo because people are afraid to get warned or banned just by speaking their mind, even if they do so in a respectful manner. I don't think that's good at all.

for a change I agree with you, the previous ruleset was just as good, and its unfortunate that tougher rules have been applied because of the few who break them.

I'm sorry mate, whilst I agree with alot of what you have said, the line I've quoted above is far from true. You are one of the most stubborn people on here. You think your opinion is right, and never, ever wrong and you go to great lengths to try and prove this, even after you have been proved wrong. It's not just the new comers.

Good post though.
