So, let's talk about it. What would you like to see?|
Edit: Hello all. I'm sorry about this, but I've turned on screening for anonymous comments in this thread and the top one on the blog. We have a troll who has been spamming comments every few hours or so, and I just don't have time to keep coming in here and deleting them. Rest assured if you post anything that ISN'T vulgar, I will unscreen it as soon as I see it. Hopefully the troll will lose interest soon and I can lift this.
Edit 1/4/2005: Comment screening turned back off; thank you all for your patience. =)

Sincerest best wishes of success in all things.
This will be my first linking to any such venture although accumulating experience in dealing with some of the players in the market place I am not faint of heart. (Forgive the spelling the mind races faster than my 4 finger typing.)
What I hope to accomplish here is at least a minor meeting of the minds in hopes of aligning more individuals (myself) in the facilitation of developing market awareness and better practices for both the industry and consumers.
I stress the industry in terms of accountability and fairness nad the consumer in the raising of the conciousness type of deal for the power of communications.
Mostly, as suggested in my 1st note to you, by the time I have started any tirade against a business on various community web sites or forums (extremtech.com, tomshardware, etc) I have already endured the situaitonal scenarios associated with poor business practices and am spured to action, being completely mindful at the same time that many of these forums are set up as spring boards for products and have industry insiders lurking on them.
[one of my earlier launches was the on-going practice of harnessing the gladhands and technazoid-wanna-be-engineers into convincing the rest of the world to do their own support thus cutting way back on their support divisions and service levels as well as consoling themselves that they can continue to cut back on qaulity releases]
As far as waiting me out, that usually is counterproductive for them as I am one to turn being ignored into a more complete coverage in my communications.
I thoroughly beleive that even just 'a few' may harness the accessibility and rights afforded us to make positive, lasting differences.
It may not show so much in the delivery, having the appearnce of a rabid wolverine at times, but it does cut down on the infantile tactics and excuses the administration usually counters with.
Perhaps you have received remedy or the disheartening exercise aimed at quelling the outrage the process has taken on you all has slowed things or made them moot and this is no longer viable for you to pursue.
However if there be even a little spark perhaps we might best use it to protect ourselves. I must no attend the on going struggle with ea on my own accord and means available...
Thank you for your time and attention,
