Strazzy, did you really wait three whole days to quibble on about this stuff? I kinda' watched you argue with quite ALOT of people over this stuff, and then you were under suspension. I would say that you were more than a little out of line here, and in this case you should have taken the whole ordeal as a sign to chill out. This will not make any headway. The argument and indeed the point has been lost. Just go with it.

Kinda news from the other side of the part:

Cliffy B. tries to defend our new Sweethearth Orthy as you may read on his Personal Blog.

Click me!

Seemes the Gamers now have another Problem to "deal with".

Spoken like the man who shouts during a pie fight and just EVERYONE hurls pastry at him. When will that boy learn?

according to vikipedia your population is 36,966. You should have fiber optics in a town this large by now, i cna understand dialup in a 100 people villages, but such a town should ahve forgotten that long ago. i pity you for having crapy monopolizing consumer abusing ISPs.

Well, the northern end of Beloit has most of the population, I live in the outskirts where no cables dare- Oh you know what? I'll just be frank with you. The ISPs are assholes, and my house is only a mile off a MAIN ROAD. While where I live in the town houses are quite far apart, but not enough to warrant not having cable. But yeah, most of the population is in a different side of my town, basically you have a metropolitan northern area, and a dead as hell southern area. And don't get me started on the city of South Beloit, they make southern Beloit look like New York.

Really? Fucking Beloit is a wasteland of internet access? You're about an hour and a half from Madison and Chicago and you can't get better than a fraction of broadband? I live up in Marquette, a town of 20,000 an hour away from the nearest town of 10,000, and I can get a connection of 300Mbps. My fucking grandparents live outside of a town with two streets on a goddamn island and they've got a better internet connection than you. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is one of the most sparsely populated sections east of the Mississipi, and you're telling me we can get a better internet connection than southern Wisconsin?

The town is nice, we have some pretty high-tech buildings. But the thing is, internet is distributed unevenly around the town, some places having high-speed, some having to deal with dial-up, ridiculously. I don't know why it's that way, but it is. Mind you, there IS a large area that can get the same high-speed internet that you guys can get, but there's also a LARGE area where people can't. I just don't know. South Beloit? Man, they can't get good internet anywhere to my knowledge. The only densely populated area is near the high-school, and the high school sucks. So does the interwebz around it. I'll state it again, I don't know what the hell the ISP's are thinking, we are willing to pay money, we are already paying more than what we'd be paying for cable for a fraction of the speed.

IF by wait you mean wait while the ban was over - then yes.
I was under suspension for "Reason: Calling someone a troll is also trolling. Please be more respectful to other users.". I agree i went over the line in a few of the responses, and as such i did not dispute the suspension. This does not however mean i must abandon what i believe, merely put my opinion forth without that much aggression.
Neither argument or the point has been lost, and if you think that you are simply mistaken.

Oh and yeah, another long pause to respond, this time RL interfered.

Front page on Reddit and all over the big news sites now. HUGE PR disaster for MS.

Oh, and there's also the meme!

Lol, brilliant.

Sorry, but is this MS Exec fucking wired up right? Apart from environmental issues the masses are sick to the back teeth of being screwed over and having everything set up so the bigcorps just leech off us.

"We'll drain the planet of resources, and drain your wallets of money - deal with it"

Well we will, consider yourself and your firm right royally fucked off Orthy. Dealt with.

Gamers said "No, we won't deal with it!" and Microsoft had to do a double take.

Deal with that Adam Orth!
