I read then make my own judgement.

    As far a the people that do come here to do nothing but bash the Pre over and over and over, yeah they should move on.

    At the end of the day it's still just a phone lol
    I wrote something to that effect a day or two ago, I think it was..."IT'S JUST A PHONE!!!". (For those of you who don't "get it", it's a reference to a line in American Beauty, only the object of discussion was a couch)

    Are you seriously telling me that you have Palms best interest at heart here? It's not that you don't like the Pre, many are in your same boat. It's just that you are here to criticize anyone and everything.

    It is funny that you would even attack my posts even though the original post specifically shows my distaste for flaming on the disenters. You can have whatever view you want about the Pre, as it has no bearing on my view on the phone.

    As for the "It's Just A Phone" comment, if that is true, why are you here then?

    DUHHHHH pogeypetey, "1812Dave" if you haven't noticed translates to: "I ate one too Dave." He's only concerned with getting some when he's here. He is here to TROLL. Pogey... sometimes a TROLL is a TROLL

    Where on earth did u get the idea that I care two shakes about Palm, Inc????


    Just because I referenced a funny line in a movie I like, doesn't mean I'm not in the market for a new phone. Here's a quarter...now go buy a CLUE!

    Exactly, there are people in here who's sole purpose is to ignite a flame war. Maybe because they own a competing product and are jealous (in which case they need to constantly prove that their's is better), or they enjoy the attention. They are nothing but trolls. And IMO, they should be called out and labeled as such as their rants do nothing but clutter the forum with misinformation sprinked with some facts which in turn take attention away from the legitimate threads.

    TROLL, laughing TROLL, ehhh, what's the difference. And who cares?! Hey, "I ate one too Dave" is your mouth full yet?

    Thanks for letting me know you don't own the phone and walked off w/o giving it a try. I'll add you to my ignore list. It's not that you aren't entitled to your opinion, I simply prefer that my time be used to read posts made by Pre owners who can share their hands-on insight or opinions.

    The problem isn't having something negative to say about the pre. I have said negative things about the pre (in that those are aspects I'd like to have improved or added etc). However I've not been flamed or called troll or anything like that. The problem is the ones being flamed or called troll are not just saying negative things about the pre, palm, webOS they are also not being constructive with their post or bothering to discuss their issues to try and resolve them or even tried to resolve them with support or by use of the vast resources of the internet before they come to the forum to make their tantrum public and the fact that they returned their pre blah blah. This is in addition to the those that post fake stories to stir things up. So some people get kind of turned off by anyone saying anything negative and jump on them.

    However many of us want to help people resolve their issues if we can. But some people just want to come here to complain and that generally doesn't help anyone. Everyone coming here that wishes to complain should keep in mind to make their posts constructive offering suggestions to how to improve things etc so that palm and 3rd parties can perhaps make things better for that person. I personally have looked at every thread that has been posted since launch day some I just read the OP and scanned the rest of the thread looking for key details others read in full. My purpose is to help people, learn things I may not know so I can help people better, and contribute to constructive discussion to make webOS be the best.
