    t2k... since when is making an observation on a website about an upgrade reason to raise questions about the journalistic integrity of the site owner?

    while I appreciate your journalistic credentials I fail to see what possible basis they have in this 'discussion'

    integrity btw is not a learned art... it is something one has or does not have unless you have been taught otherwise... mike himself already has a profession... most people on sites have a profession and work @ that profession and indulge in broadening their horizons wrt hobbies and the like by joining and participating in discussions on websites such as this...

    keep in mind that the issue here is a few peoples interpretation of a single tidbit on the front-page... when read in context it seems odd that a problem exists...

    your introduction of journalistic standards is a little beffudling given that it is well known that most of the sites we frequent start off as hobbies or whatever else and grow from there... not many tech sites start of with the thought of upholding professional journalistic standards...

    btw... I don't much fancy being called a soldier nor appreciate being looked upon in a condascending manner while a free pass is given to the person who has shown a rather disturbing tendency to start threads like this... I cannot fathom why this is unless your standards are extremely biased to one side of the equation over the other...

    if this is the case it brings up the question... why should I even bother given credence to your professional journalistic standards when your bias is so blatantly clear on this issue?

    if this is not the case... well read... I will refrain from calling you a soldier or any other such thing and wish you well in your professional endeavors...

    Yes, I am.

    Moreover I'm proud of it.

    I don't know what's that...

    Yes, it was intentional.
    If you don't understand why, read again, over and over.
    I believe you'll get it finally...

    both your questions were answered...

    read back a few posts ago where I posted joerg's statement wrt the server...

    as for what mike has to say

    further

    obviously you appear to be more adept @ asking questions HERE than actually reading the threads @ nvn where they have been responded to...

    *** disclaimer ***

    I would like to apologise to all b3d members and dave if anything I have said has appeared to reflect badly on either b3d or members @ b3d... it was not my intention to do so.. nor did I wish to see this 'situation' grow to be as protracted as it obviously has become...

    accept my apologies... I will endeavor to be more level-headed in my postings and responses wrt sensitive matters...

    thanks...

    Sazar...

    My post wasn't meant in any way as a slam on Rage3D. I was merely trying to make a point that if a fansite of one IHV can be criticized for not broadening their coverage then in fairness all fansites should be duly criticized.

    I haven't raised that question, Sazar. Be accurate - otherwise I have to call your whole understanding in question.

    Read my post again and try to interpret first.

    Again: I didn't even use the word 'integrity', I never indicted anything like that.

    I couldn't because I am not following your site or Mike or whoever wrote this piece.

    Again: be accurate.

    Again: it wasn't the question.

    It has nothing to do with my notes.


    Keep in mind, my obviously misleaded friend: the problem is that you don't even SEE what's the problem.

    And yet guys like you still has this kinda' big face however can't even understand my concerns regarding such a simple case like this.

    It doesn't mean nobody has to choose the professional approach.

    I wasn't talking about dw or anybody else - I was talking about a confusing post onthe front of a 'news' site and I called this a typical amateur behavior, together your reactions like this.
    That's it - try to keep your focus on the subject.

    Wrong again - did you actually understand what I'm writing? :shock:


    Look, my friend: you are obviously huffy but I don't really understand, why. You don't even understand my point, namely he/you wasn't/weren't even aware of making confusion, due to your 'news' site title. He/you couldn't be because of his/your missing, hmm, lets just say, missing years in this profession.
    Instead of admitting it - it was an amateur act - you just made out something on your own and shooting on that.. but I never raised questions regarding of his integrity.
    It wasn't my point, my friend.


    Edit: typos

    ...

    ...and digi, the thread closing (yours) was nothing more than a movement of protocol. Your questions appeared to be answered, and due to this issue being messy and full of pot-shots, we didn't wanna let the discussion degenerate any further. Simple as that. No lame ass copout. That's not my bag.

    t2k... from reading your post about journalistic standards it would seem very clear to me what you meant... unless you feel I am implying something you never meant or considered implying in which case this whole thread itself is moot...

    I read your post many times before I answered m8... you were a little condascending in your dismissal... and I failed to see what basis your post has with mike's post hence what I posted...

    the question of integrity is the central issue in this thread... it is the 2nd time that the same person has raised a similar question about the integrity of the site... ergo my inclusion of the term... you should understand that point if you wish for me to understand your post to be what you intended it to be...

    the problem you are putting forth wrt amateurs and journalistic standards... while valid... would apply to 99% of all websites out there...

    back to the post on the front page... if it is read in context as it is meant to be is innocent enough...

    I understand your point... I understand what you are insinuating... I took issue with sections of your post... perhaps it is due to your command of the english language that some points come across unclearly but the gist of your message was understood... as I said in my original post I could have mis-interpreted sections...

    How could you possibly misinterpret him Sazar? With the relentless bolding he should make perfect sense. :D Kind of ironic in that "professional" writing styles very rarely employ bolding to make their points. Perhaps he'll start in with the clever use of uppercase if we're lucky.

    Although it's obviously my second language, I think I made my point clear regarding amateur approach.

    I fyou still don't understand, that's not my problem - that's yours, my friend.

    FYI: illusions are dangerous after a certain point.

    FYI pretty silly 'maxpova' :roll:: I'm not publishing here, if you haven't noticed. :roll:

    I just tried to be sure even kids like you can understand the matter.

    (OFF Wait... :shock: am I replying to somebody who calls himself some 'maxpova' or whatever? :shock: I have to go to sleep. Immediately...)

    PS: /me console offline

    MaxPower is in reference to an episode from "The Simpsons" (one of the best works of satire of our generation..but I doubt that you watch cartoons, prolly beneath ya). I know you're not publishing (the way you act though you could've fooled me). :roll: I'm no kid and bolding doesn't help anyone to better understand this. "or whatever" ahahahaah to quote a wise, wise professional "what is that?". IMO you take yourself just a tad bit too seriously. My experience has taught me that those that take themselves too seriously are usually not taken seriously at all by others. :lol: I've gotta go too, I'm laughing so hard that I ca n bar e ly tipe! :lol:

    t2k.. this is not about you... this is not about me... this is not about max...

    I get your point... albeit I have a different view on this matter...

    also fyi... your hammering continuosly of this whole amateur angle does not lend extra credence to what you wish to propagate...

    I am sorry I don't agree with what you say in its entirety though I have made it clear that I understand the gist of your comments...

    Nice ad hom attack - try again, biatch.

    Wow, name calling now that is a true example of an ad hominem (I think that's what you meant) attack. ;) Look up that little Latin term and you'll see that my argument did, in fact, include logic and reason. So, you're the better example of it than I am. :lol:

    edit: forgot to capitalize Latin

    Re: ...

    LOL, that'd be cool. ;) Yeah, this thread isn't up to B3D's standards methinks and I'm admittedly not helping matters now. Sometimes people set themselves up like a big fat softball on a tee though and it's...just...so...hard...to....resist. :)
