Wether i said i was leaving this board or not has no relevance to what is being said. I spoke to some people privately about my stance on EAB, the rest is history.

I understand completely where you are coming from, but its not the correcting im concerned about, its the way its being done, and the amount of times people are being bad mouthed by individuals that clearly have no respect for others on here.

Watching people chasing vapourware is enough to anger even the most mild mannered person, and it's problem not those people we're 'angry with', but the developers of said vapourware.
Yes i am also frustrated at the way the Amiga has been thrown around from place to place and has seen very little progression and im not exactly new to all of this, ive been following the Amiga scene since 1990, which although is not as much as some others on here, its still long enough to make me a little jaded about the whole scenario, but its still NO excuse to call people on here Losers or pathetic fanatics, which is normally tied in with other cocky and snide remarks.

This has "nothing" to do with the Amiga and more to do with stepping over line of being "overly" opinionated. And i never said nor did i think anyone said the Amiga would take the world over overnight!? ( correct me if im wrong ) and nor can i recall anyone on here calling anyone inferior for not using it ( maybe you mean the general public ? ), actually if anything, the people who support OS4 on here are the ones that seem to be constantly labeled as inferior. I can handle it happening once in a while, but i see constant critisism of people & not opinions here on a daily basis.

Some may say, well dont come here if you dont like it!. No i do want to come here, but what i dont want is people abusing the privilage of being able to post on what is supposed to be a forum of constructive opinion. What i do want to see is zero tolerance for slander.

Yes i have slandered on here myself, but you get what you give in this world, and the people in question need to be moderated back into line.

Well if someone uses OS4, that doesnt mean they dont use anything else. I am going to be installing linux as soon as i get a chance and im currently using XP to type this message. There is nothing wrong with having a little faith/interest in OS4 to go along with it.

Thanks for your "decent" post P-J. I do appreciate it.
