    Hello everyone,

    My recent post "Awful Apple Experience" which recounted my recent experience with Apple seemed to attract a lot of Apple Thought Police who could only resort to ad hominem attacks and disparaging remarks.

    The neutral reader would not 'shoot the messenger' and know that ad hominem attacks only reveal that a person has lost the plot.

    I have stopped replying to that particular thread because I have better things to do with my time.

    I am aware that Apple monitor this site and I am glad they do as my original post was made in the hope that they would read about my experience and improve their overall customer service, note also that Apple have still not responded to my emails (of course I did not only email Tim Cook).

    Flamers, trolls, pedants and defenders of the Apple faith can go right ahead and post what they want, they can work themselves into a state of agitation as much as they like, I am an advocate of free speech as it is what separates us from repressive regimes. Such people will have to eventually realise that the world does not revolve around them and getting so worked up is bad for the body and mind in the long run.

    Take care everyone and I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing Sunday as much as I am.

    Apple doesn't monitor this site the way you think. Apple if anything probably wants this site closed down! Apple hates rumors and has tried in the past to knock down rumor sites, think Think Secret!

    Plus one more thing big tech companies don't really read people's email. Maybe they have someone in the marketing department but that just might be the farest and email goes. If you want to be different send them a snail mail letter and someone in Apple might read it.

    So you hate Apple and think if you come to site that Apple itself dislikes and post of a troll bate thread then you are just fooling yourself.

    Apple want to know what their customers think so that they can target their marketing effectively.

    Man are you fooling yourself! I bet Apple probably puts a block inside their headquarters for sites like this. You would be better off using Apple Feedback page.

    Apple Marketing is probably monitoring MacRumors Main Page to see if they can sue the leakers or MacRumors itself, again look at what happened to Think Secret!

    Maybe some Apple employess on their own might at home come here but would've in a million years boast they work at Apple.

    You said in your previous post;

    "Apple Marketing is probably monitoring MacRumors Main Page to see if they can sue the leakers or MacRumors itself, again look at what happened to Think Secret!"

    You reading to much they monitor the main dude of site to find leakers of secrets to use aginst the leaker and/or MacRumors itself! They don't care about your genral "Apple is Doomed" rants. Windows fanboys tried all those back in the day and you rant reminds me of that.

    Sure Apple has been misfiring lately (iCloud & bad iCloud policies, soldered ram) but the is par of the course. See the Hockey Puck Mouse and the Apple Speaker is just a few missteps and it the MoblieMe fiasco.

    I replied in that thread just now, focusing on your in-store experience. You'll get little sympathy. While the Specialists involved should have probably explained why you were being moved about (perhaps they did, were you listening?), they did not really do anything wrong.

    In your previous thread you stated you had used Macs for many years, which implies you are an experienced user, yet you chose to go through a potentially lengthy process of a major OS update instore rather than taking your Mac home and just plugging it into your broadband connection. I can't see why anyone but a complete novice to computing would take that decision.

    The last time I called Apple, I was informed that MacRumors.com is blocked. They can't even visit the site. I had heard that more than once.

    Umm...no. Apple doesn't care what we think or like. They TELL us what we like. Show of hands, how many said they wanted a iPod Touch Pico to strap to their wrist? I heard lots of folks wanted something svelt/sleek or at least something that looks like a watch.

    Whether Apple monitors the macrumors site is a whole debate in itself.

    However, when I have a mac issue I do 2 things post on macrumors and, when I do see that my issue could be a bug, I raise a feedback with Apple.

    What cruelly frustrates me is the opacity of Apple on feedback customers submit to it.

    Hence I can understand people raising things here, rather than with Apple.

    Hmm... the average MacRumor's poster is not the average Apple user.

    I don't think Apple will become wiser by monitoring this site's forums, or AppleInsider's etc.
