Its not a bif hole. Its cos im in cheap rented accomodation - its built like a tin can.

I'm not a blind follower either - its just the blind followers on either side keep going over the same old ground..

But still your right - we're gonna have OS 4 not before long, and stuff to concentrate our efforts on. I'll have to have a word with Tamars Dad about this hole before the landlord finds out...

@Steve

Indeedy. Being an openly pro-Amiga (in the official sense) site does seem to attract a lot flack from the FUD flingers.

Exactly.... there are "good guys" and "bad guys" on both sides of the fence. I'm no better, cause I've been reeled into my share of troll fests. It really is not good for your health I believe. I've felt so much better since being over here. Not that I hear so much praise for any particular company, but simply because I don't have to listen to all of the arguing. It's no good in the end for either side.

The Pegasos guys have new hardware and an OS to use and that's great for them. They should be enjoying that instead of letting others side track them. It's not a solution for me (although I admit it looks really interesting), but they are lucky to have a complete system long before the rest of us. It should be happy times for everyone on both sides.
It's the select few who keep things ruined for everyone.

I will refrain from betting that dollar.
The reason being, is how will the lawyer introduce something such as hearsay into the evidence, and in such a ringing way as to evoke actual anger.

I'm not saying a clever lawyer couldn't try...but I just don't think it will be an issue, judges don't listen to much.....it isn't like TV...they are in a big, big hurry.
Not a lot of room for hyperbole or even...its sad to say, but not even a lot of time to consider the facts.

I won't bother to post within that AO thread again. My comments and many others backing / explaining Ray's or Amiga's point of view were simply deleted. Yet there comes BBRV ready to pour more oil onto the flames and his comment is still there.

I think it's all very unfortunate. I however understand that Kees is in a very difficult position. were simply deleted. Yet there comes BBRV ready to pour more oil onto the flames and his comment is still there.

BBRV's post was about the topic. Yours, mine
and other posts were not, so they were fairly
removed. It seems that all (off-topic) posts
about the 'HMetal' debacle were removed.

Yes, and those comments by Kees (which you just
said you replied to) were *also* removed,
because they were off-topic. The topic was
about McEwan's press release, not HMetal and
his subsequent banning.

@ -D-

Bill Buck brought up alot of stuff which were not at all on topic and in fact only adds oil to the flames.

I think it is strange to all of the sudden delete so many comments while moderators themselves were online all of the time and could have stepped in at any time. And then all of the sudden delete so many non-flaming reasonable comments.

Well, the deleted comments were about HMetal's
banning. If you'll check back and notice, the
on-topic comments were not deleted.

Which post was that? Maybe I'm missing one. The
one from bbrv that I see is clearly on-topic.

The one in which he yet again was in denial that he has done any wrong and i.e. even bringing up Garry Hare (off topic) as an example of how correct he has been all of the time. (Garry never was the CEO of Amiga, Bill McEwen was not fired like he claimed, Fleecy was not soon to follow as he implied, etc). However the fact is that this was none of his business to begin with and still he uses something like this as an example to give credit for his latest wild claims!

Your comments were moslty off-topic and
inflammatory. Should they have been sifted
with a fine toothed comb, to leave the
little on-topic bits there may have been? I've
never seen any moderator do that. Mine were
deleted in the same way...sure, there *may* have
been little on-topic bits, but the general
'Gesinnung' of the post was off-topic.

As far as bbrv's post, he states a viewpoint,
and then provides extraneous evidence as to
why that viewpoint should be seen as legitimate.
Entirely on-topic. Whether you agree or
disagree with those bits in particular is yet
another topic, and BTW your disagreement does
not automatically make something true or false.

Indeed, then we might actaully get some answers instead of fluff.

No, I was just speaking generally. I didn't comment on the quality of the answers.
