    Wow, seriously Vick? So only those that post loving, wonderful things about this device would be welcomed here? What ever happened to freedom of expression, and the peaceful exchange of ideas good or bad? In my opinion, that's exactly what these and all internet forums are for. Seems to me, reading one 'My pre kicks ***' post after another would be pretty boring.

    Cellphones are a much more complicated purchase than anything else because you are actually buying two products. A phone and a carrier. And if both don't work perfect then you've got a problem. So where does an internet savvy user run when they have a problem? To discussion boards.

    The thing that always strikes me as strange is that the "enlightened" snooty users who have zero problems with a product are always the ones who want to clear the room of negativity and turn it into a Support Group. But shouldn't the people suffering from problems be the ones looking for a support group of fellow users? Youre phone works fine and life is grand but they're the ones who can't figure out why "the phone is slow when I do this" or "it keeps rebooting when I do that". But instead of the problem free users giving them a hand they instead tell them to **** off, blame the problem on the user and tell them to take their stupid make-believe trollbait somewhere else.

    The internet is a sick world.

    Your poll choices, although very funny, are tipped and unbalanced. You've made the very idea of a separate section for complaints completely uncredible

    I understand that some people post erroneous statements and are just looking to make trouble, but the forum should be a place of free expression -- and for the most part -- it is. The information here is quite useful.

    Even the complaining.
    Nobody said anything about not allowing complaints. It's about organizing the forum to make it friendlier/easier for everyone.

    To me I see everybody (except the trolls) as winners. Those, like me, who are sick of seeing the same complaints over and over will have less crap to wade through. And those who love to read complaints (or have complaints themselves), or just want to vent, will have a place to come together without being attacked about duplicate threads etc.

    There is already a 'tech support' like forum, I don't see why complaint threads can't put in there or have a sub-forum there.
    Sony Clie --> Tungsten t2 --> iPhone3g --> Palm Pre --> Droid

    Can you change the "apple fanboys" in option number 2 to just fanboys in general? I love my Pre, but I also think the Pre fanboys are just as bad just as bad as the Apple fanboys.

    I find that most fanboys can't be reasoned with, that's why I find them all equally annoying. Like a true Pre fanboy would never acknowledge anything good the iPhone does, just like an Apple fanboy wouldn't acknowledge anything good the Pre does. You just don't find Pre fanboys as annoying because they like the product you're here to talk about. I do because they'll defend something that shouldn't be defended no matter what.

    Well, that's not really how it goes here though, now is it? Let's take for example the thread at the top of the list as I type this: "Navigation Within A Text Field". OP asks how to do something and he's immediately given an answer. But of course, that's not good enough on PreCentral; you've got to start a discussion over how badly that feature sucks, no matter what it is.

    I've seen very few threads on here where someone legitimately asked for help and was told to **** off.

    We never have these problems on iPhone forums, cause iPhones were made just perfect in the first place! GD&R

    Real concerns and issues are just fine, I hate people who use this forum as a venting tool.

    Just remember, nothing can ever be as good as the almighty IPhone. All hail Steve Jobs and Apple.

    I certainly wouldn't mind a sub-forum.

    In all honesty, I just ignore trolls! Over at sailing anarchy it is possible to place an actual user on ignore, so you don't see their posts.

    You can do that here. Use User CP on the menu to go to your profile and then under Settings & Options select Edit Ignore List. I'm please to say the most of those on my ignore list have disappeared or post infrequently these days.

    Look up the word "forum"....

    This is a Forum, everything is OK here. (...in the right thread, of course.)


    Don't like it, don't read it. ;-)
