    Wait wait wait!! Maybe we have misunderstood 2008 all along: maybe he meant IQ as in intelligence quotient and not image quality! Maybe he's been posting ironically all this time!! <mind blown>

    So help bring the standard back up ;)

    I gave 2008 his little holiday, along with some advice, so that if he comes back (I gave him that option) he'll try a little harder to not post like an eejit.

    I was about to Google "eejit" but then it occurred to me that you meant "idiot" with a funny pronunciation. :)

    Does this mean the collective IQ goes back down today? :|

    Can people be banned here for pure stupidity? I know he had a temp ban, more a more perm one? He adds nothing here and simply makes people answer stupid questions or discusses his uninformed crazy political ideas.

    I think him and his style is the antithesis to B3D.

    That would be me. Although I actually claimed that 25-30fps in Crysis is equal to 50-60 in HL2. I still stand by it, after playing both games many many many times, and testing the feel of both games in many locations. 25fps in HL2 is a slideshow, yet 2560x1600 2xAA in Crysis (8x in warhead) plays perfectly. I can score headshot after headshot, even in MP. If you don't feel the fluidity of movement and gameplay at 25fps in Crysis you're just getting too hung up on numbers.

    And, in keeping with the topic of the thread, when I took "qualified" IQ test a few years ago (and not just something online) I scored 163. So I'm not a stupid poo poo head.

    That's him.

    I think that's a legitimate point, because the motion blurring in Crysis may trick the brain into seeing more fluid motion than exists.

    Anyways, 2008 IQ is definitely unacceptable, but I don't think he should be banned. Rather take away his ability to post, or at the very least post new threads. Then maybe if he reads enough he will learn something (doubtful). Still, I don't want to hold his idiocy against him, he clearly has some kind of mental disorder. It's really quite unfortunate. So maybe we can make a special place for him to post, I dunno. And I don't think he is totally useless, he could be a writer for Stephan Colbert one pay perhaps, the resemblance is striking.

    Don't moderators check every post a new member makes, before letting it through? Why not do the same with IQ?
