    Okay sports fans, I raised it earlier today, and new threads still keep popping up with recently found/heard/made up rumors of the pending Sprint/Cingular/Verizon/anybody Palm releases. In honor of Swift's A Modest Proposal, I recommended we ask the Mods to block all new threads until there is an actual release (by commercial sale) of the next Palm Treo Whatever XXX. That way, we can all force ourselves, and our multitude of new guests, to find an existing thread to dump this c#@& (oops - excuse me - information) in to.

    Here's your chance to vote. As Otter said in Animal House:

    Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these ****. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

    Her'es to futile gestures!

    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    I heard Palm may announce something near the end of May!!! I was talking to my cell rep...

    I agree with dstrauss, unless you have real pics, shut the hell up.
    Freedom of some speech in the US, through someone in the UK.

    Do you think that will qualifies as "an offer they just couldn't refuse?"

    I don't know, some of the predictions are mighty funny, then you throw in those who get all bent out shape because of the latest rumor, it can be quite entertaining, especially on the slow days.

    Just ban the asshats who start new threads linking to Engadget or some other incestuous site, showing the same document, and posting the same info thats been beaten to death for nearly a month here...

    It's also quite fun watching people get bent out of shape about posts in a forum. Apparently there are many people here suffering from OCD. They don't want to see new posts on certain topics but for whatever reason they still read them and then complain about it like they were forced to read it. Ask your doctor for some Zoloft, see a psychologist, take a break, just quit complaining.
    Visor Deluxe->Visor Edge (Upgraded for $100.00 just by giving them the Serial # of my Visor Deluxe plus I got to keep the Deluxe. Those were the days!)-> Palm M-505->M-515->Tungsten T->Zire 72->Treo 650->->Treo 700P->Treo 755P. Plus various replacements. 8130 Pearl....Sorry

    I will fall on the side of TC being an open forum and that we should allow people some freedom. I remember being politiely scolded for starting my "FREE 4MB of MEMORY" thread early on as a noobie (which I still am) -- for it was a topic well known to the existing posting community at the time. However, (mostly thru my promotion of it) it has been useful to many readers.

    n4cer may have never posted either. So, let's take the good with the bad and welcome all comers!

    Cheers, Perry.

    That's because:
    1. Many are hungering for the 700p release.
    2. So as a result of no. 1, people are hoping that for once it's a LEGIT announcement, not just another rumor!

    So yes, they're are going to keep reading and looking for a LEGIT announceent! People are getting pissed because it's the same lame stuff over and over. How many times do you want to hear someone say "I heard from my rep", but then offer no real proof of any release! It's like chain jerking!
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!
