    Clearly you missed the point.



    Cool. Skip over the apology I gave. Have I banned or infracted anyone else in this thread? Nope. So why would you even suggest that I would do that to you. Step outside of the S4 section for an idea of how AC really is. Hint: Much friendlier.
    1) So please oh wise one, continue to elaborate on just what point that I missed?

    2) what apology did you post on this thread? I can't find it.

    3) I do agree with you that the staff here at AC is far more friendly in other sections of the forums. Since for the last 2 months I've mostly have been in the One forum, I will say that I've never seen a moderator act as you do here. It is far friendlier then here as far as staff is concerned.

    Oh I know. I haven't watched that many comparison videos, but the videos I have watched have all been pro-One. CNET is the first I've seen, and it could be just me, that actually went the other way, even if it was ever so slightly.
    It was what I expected personally. Both phones are really good so either is a win in my opinion .

    I actually refer to cnet as well as android central, as my two main review sites when trying to determine whether a phone purchase is worth it.

    I found this to be very fair. Good read, and that's something I've never said about CNET before.
    Ya think maybe someone up high at CNET realized their credibility had sunk so low that they started an internal campaign to restore it?


    Either that or they all got bored with their iphones.

    They do suck. They did a car review recently and tried to make it sound like Nissan was on par with Honda. NOT. Nissan is the "I can't afford Honda/Toyota" company. My purely anecdotal unscientific proof of this rests in my obserservation that I see more hoodierats driving Altimas than Accords
    Your proof is horribly biased. I see plenty of gangbanging wannabes driving Camrys, Corollas, Accords, AND CIVICS. Nissan, Toyota, and Honda all compete on the same level. They are the 3 big Japanese makers.

    Come on, man! Why is this a thread? Another f'ing thread... because there weren't 40 identical ones to post that link in? Nobody would have found their way over to that tiny little tech site on their own? This is ridiculous. Like a bunch of petulant children here. If you can't get the last word in on a thread, start another and get the first word in over there. If you weren't happy bashing the moderators time and time again in one thread, just search for the latest "GS4 vs One" thread (trust me - some enormous tool is bound to start one every day) and you can keep going at it. You can say it happens "like clockwork" all you want, but you're part of the problem and you keep winding that clock. This thread was flying off the rails halfway through the first page. And the moderators, who love to say "don't feed the trolls", apparently roll around here with garbage bags full Red Vines and Doritos, Cheez-it's and Red Bull, because they can't stop themselves from feeding everyone. And then there are the lurkers who just pop in to stir the pot in case things actually start to settle down a bit. Good Lord, it's like The Warriors in here.

    Then a bunch of us stupidly come to this thread, clicking on the "Trending Now" link, only to find the usual suspects in another pissing contest over which fans are more obnoxious and why moderators shouldn't be allowed to have opinions. Then there's the "don't talk about lag on my GS4! You're a filthy liar!" guys who are immediately followed by the jerkoff posting "meh, the GS4 sucks. HTC FTW!". (On a side-note, anyone who uses "meh" and "FTW" in a post should have their login revoked and YOLO tattooed on their forehead). While "you better not be talking about me" and "I'm not getting sucked into this again, except for these next 10 posts" get plastered all over the forums and you nincompoops stand around with your arms folded and your chests thrust out like your **** don't stink, you are making this place very not-fun for the rest of us.

    There's no more lively debate. No more geeking-out as a community. We can't talk about battery technology without the "non-removable batteries are stupid" snipers. We can't discuss anything regarding manufacturing or build-quality because "plastic sucks, can't you get that through your thick head?" and there will be blood spilled at some point. I can't talk about something on my phone that I don't like or that isn't right because I know the thread will become a "that's because your phone is a POS and my phone is powered by the blood of the baby Jesus" fiasco. For the record - that isn't real helpful, just telling someone their phone sucks. It's not why most of us started coming here in the first place. I lurked around here for over a year before I signed up because it was a little intimidating, seeing all these people who seemed to know what they were talking about and not wanting to sound like a total moron. But people were welcoming and wanted to help, so it was good. But some of you guys have turned into a virus that just keeps spreading and infecting every damn thread you post in. The sad thing is, we never know when you all are going to show up. We just know that you will. Thanks for screwing it all up for the rest of us.

    If you could afford an accord AND you knew your cars, you wouldn't have bought an Altima. It's not nicer. The accord has blown the altima away every year since the altima has come out. Honda engineering and quality blows Nissan away. Nissan may as well just be called Chevrolet, Chrysler or Ford.

    Nissan isn't even it's own company, they're partly owned by Renault, France, which is a lousy car company, and Nissan also used to base some of their technology on Toyota until 2010 - so much for innovative engineering.

    It's not nicer to who? The Altima looks a lot nicer than the Accord. I trust Consumer Reports and the Altima is always ranked very good. And I could care less if it's partially owned by Renault. What do you drive?

    Because you're not trolling by calling out HTC fans? We're not ALL like that, just how I assume not ALL S4 fans are as much of a ****** as you are.

    Just for clarity, was the diatribe earlier with profanity/insults/YOLO included in that action plan? For the record, I won't ever cry foul, but I just want to know for clarification purposes.
