I may only have been a member for a couple of years but I've been perusing these forums for a lot longer and the exchange that I had yesterday with edesignuk (here) set me thinking: at the rate I post it will be at least 15 years before I am entitled to an avatar, something that I do not think accurately reflects my input into this website. What input you may ask, if I hardly ever post? Well, if I am correct in my thinking, this site is financed through the hits it receives and not through the number of postings an individual makes, if it were say 500 logins, I would not be writing this, and I would also have had an avatar within, at most, a 150 day period. But as edesignuk has plainly made clear: " ...course, you're wasting your breath. It's been gone over, many, many times. Nothing is about to change.". I find this very difficult to digest (particularly the tone), because it implies that even if my argumentation was correct, out of spite it would not even be considered. And if that is the case with this issue, I have no alternative but to believe that this, rather than being the exception, is in fact the rule with any criticism I or any others may level at MacRumours or anything else for that matter, be it right or wrong. Now, I don't know what the other members are prepared to put up with, but I am not prepared to put up with this philistine attitude, because to condone it, is to lend credence to it. But maybe this attitude of the moderators derives from the fact that they are some of the worst offenders when it comes off-topic micro postings. I would cancel my membership immediately, if I could find the button, but in your infinite wisdom you appear to have forgotten one, or at least I can't find it, so I hereby request that the rule quoted by Mitthrawnuruodo: ".......This will get your account banned -- and get your IP banned from the forums and site where you won't even be able to load the site." be implemented, for I no longer wish to be associated with this website.
