This is mainly for Barak: If I see you responding to every post with useless comments just to have your name down the side as the last poster to every one again, you will no longer be able to post to these forums.

Your posts have kept us amused for a while, but childish behaviour will not be tolerated any further, as I have said several times before.

Why don't you make another post with some statement that you can't back up and everyone disagrees with that turns into an interesting debate (or at least one-sided slaw like the last one, but with one interesting side, anyway).

I can't believe people go around posting just to get "most recent poster" status.

Once the administration functions are a bit more streamlined, I have a feeling there might be a lot more vanishing posts :)

Actually to add to that, we are finding we are having to consider more admin functions since I created this board, just because of some of the spammage.. its not a bad thing all round, spam is good for a laugh, however some people are taking this to extremes.

PS.. I dont know what trog is talking about :)

In addition to this, we'll be adding a spell checker which will operate exclusively on term's posts (heehee!)

So, in effect, what you're saying is you have so few cluepons that you would deliberately go out of your way to antagonise me and risk not being able to post to this board?

Who do you think would lose out if you could no longer post to this board?

Please try and grow up a little.

oh and by the way trog, at least i have the balls to express my opinions rather than just keep quiet and not risk disagreeing with anyone. that's hardly something to be scorned for becasue if we all were like that it would get very boring. and the fact that you guys all abuse me sinply becasue i have different apinions proves taht the vast majority of you are f***ign idiots, ill voice my opinions andif you don tliek peole diagreeing with you what's the point of a forum anyway.

so f*** you to anyone who think staht people wit THEIR OWN OPINIONS deserve to be slandered, certainly argue with them if you disagree, but abusing them shows that you just want to use teh internet as a way of acting tough casue your too scared in real life.

from what i've seen, your opinions are usually nothing but pointless drivel or abuse.

congratulations on having the balls to stand up and say your piece.





ps - "the fact that you guys all abuse me sinply becasue i have different apinions proves taht the vast majority of you are f***ign idiots"



i wonder why everyone abuses you ....

Its cool to have opinions, thats what the message board is for; I'm not getting up you for having opinions, I'm getting up you for acting like a child and responding to everyone's post so your name appears all over the webboard. You know, we offer webpage hosting (www.qgl.org/hosting) so you could ask for a website and call it "baraks house of gaming opinion", and as long as it was updated and gaming-related, we'd happily support it.

And, I'm getting up you for saying you don't have any respect for what I (very politely and repeatedly) have asked you to do - try and behave.

Additionally, there's a difference between having an opinion and forcefully stating what you think is absolutely provably true, especially when everyone else is not only disagreeing with you, but solidly bringing facts to light which prove you wrong. Its good to see you changing your stance as this new evidence was brought to light though.

Opinions are a good thing.

yes i realise that that responding to everythign was a bit gay, but i was bored, and i was the first one to do and you have to admire me for being a pioneer

and as for that whole debate, its not like on a forum anyone is producing irefutable evidence, mostly the evidence was just other peoples opinions who fo rone reason or another were supposedly more valid (despite the fact that those articles were only written by gamers aswell....)

No, you weren't. There has been MANY boards where someone has decided it would be cool to do exactly what you just thought of. After you see it for the umpteenth time it gets very tiring.

I guess about now is when someone thinks *boing* is cool.

good for you mate, however im not a internet forum expert and there was a certain amount of sarcasm in taht comment anyway.

pfft barak ... please don't go on about science & irrefutable evidence ! I could wheel Steven Hawkins up to you & get him to explain all about sampling rates & video synchonisation & you would just go "Thats YOUR OPINION wheelchair man !" Also ... the irrefutable evidence is in the practical application & the years of experience that those argueing against you have had.

Quake rulez ... why ... timedemo demo1 = 209 fps !!! :o)

Maybe you guys could allow the creator of the thread to specify whether they want it QGL-censored to remove all the chaff and stupid stuff, or to keep the thread free of the Admins' subjective calls on what's appropriate. Obviously you don't have to, but I think it's a fair compromise. Once the benefits of QGL-Censoring becomes apparent, I'm sure most thread creators would gladly flag it as such.

Also, something you guys may have already though about, once you start taking responsibilty for the content of the posts, do you become liable for offensive/illegal material posted here? I have no idea one way or the other, just thought I'd ask.
