Should Droid Adopters Go Quietly into the Night?

    I am an iPhone owner and user. I come to this forum to read about, discuss, and exchange tips about iPhone use. Personally, I am sick to death of coming here and finding people posting about their new Droid or about the many reasons they can't stand the iPhone and are switching to a Blackberry.

    I mean, do we really need five Droid threads, an HTC Touch thread and a PalmPre thread on the main page?

    I mean some of it is trolling, some of it might be legitimate. It's just like the threads about why I switched Mac.

    I don't care that they are switching and don't really understand why they come on here to post TTYTT (unless it's to troll). If I switched, I'd be in the forums for the phone I switched to.

    Exactly. I don't post in Blackberry forums about why I no longer use a Blackberry.

    Oh yeah. Someone started one this week like "I don't know if there's a thread already like this but I think it could be really fun!!" I backed out of that thread before the flaming erupted :eek:

    I don't mind the "I switched to xyz" threads so much. It's kind of interesting to here people's perspectives and know what the competition's up to. I do wish it could stay in one thread though.

    I agree completely. This message board is supposed to be about the iPhone. I could care less about reading about Droads, Palms or any other phone.

    I don't really care why people are switching. That said, I understand the iPhone is just a phone and people may have a legitimate reason to switch.

    I had a htc kaiser

    before this I was on a windows mobile forum there as well. when I decided to get my Iphone I never told them I was leaving I figured who cares it's a forum for Kaisers not Iphones if I ever decide to switch to what ever I will figure my choices are personal and just leave. ;)

    How else are we suppose to troll, post our meaningless comments, act like an internet tough guy, and pretend to know what we're talking about...if we don't have these types of threads?

    Noone cares and nobody needs to justify to anyone here why they decided to switch. Move on, register at a new forum and give your reasons there if you must.

    Hey, it's a free country.
    Being annoyed is probably the worst reason to silence an informative topic.

    I really don't care of someone switches phone platforms. They want a droid, or a mytouch or a palm pre. More power to them. The iPhone is far from perfect and its clear that the iPhone does not and will not suit everyone.

    I like to hear why as it may save me time and help me to find the phone that may better suit me/my needs.

    No I don't care, and they should find another forum to talk about it.

    This isn't a Droid or BlackBerry forum. Take your discussions elsewhere, I come here to read about the iPhone. And to be honest, most other people here don't care why the iPhone or AT&T was a bad choice for you.

    Is it any less annoying to make a thread whining about switching threads, threads which you can easily ignore?

    I think a huge number of them will be back in the next five years.
