All you 68k guys better not post over on I just got banned for a week for trolling. This is the first time in my life I have been banned from a forum. No warnings just censorship of my posts and then the ban. The thread posts went like the following.

Perhaps if Hyperion catered a bit to the much larger 68K market their statement might make more sense.

The buzz around Natami showed that what most Amiga users want is a continuation of the original Amiga idea, what most users would have liked future Amigas to look like - which is not necessarily what Commodore would have done. I, and I think most 68K users, would have liked continually enhanced custom chipsets to keep the Amiga unique and better than the rest of the PC market. AA/AAA/SuperAGA/whatever.

Catering to the tiny AmigaOS 4.x/PowerPC market seems bizarre to me. Hyperion/A-EON would be much better off continuing development of AmigaOS 68K and moving forward with a FPGA project in my opinion.

Arrogant leadership can expect no sympathy. Was it Queen Marie Antoinette who said of the peasants without bread, "Let them eat cake" before the French revolution and losing her head? The Amiga bourgeoisie would be wise to be more inclusive and open.

I have to say, I can't fathom how they are possibly still in business.

I don't want the chaos of another messy bankruptcy/revolution.
This isn't the first time my posts have been censored or disappeared on The elites insult us over and over again but expect us to buy their overpriced old technology. They can't handle the truth which has become trolling to them. Shall I start a thread of Amiga users who pledge to not buy, support or use any products from Hyperion or A-EON including AmigaOS 4, AmigaOne,,, amigakit, Amiga Store, etc.? I'm tired of this. If they want a non-inclusive divided Amiga community then we will divide it more against them. Anyone else ready for a revolution?
