However, I think g52 should be allowed to stay... to provide some 'hotter than hot' entertainment value around here.
At Stardock we welcome criticism and conversation about our products. The limits we place on that extend only to civility and constructive dialog. For those that have lost the privilege to post in these and other SD forums it is due to the fact that they contributed nothing but strong sentiments of hate and anger, and we know what side that leads to. While I know you did not imply that he not be allowed to post here I thought perhaps I would touch on the subject since it is often brought up.
So long as g52 can keep his dislike of our products to a civil tongue he is more than welcome to express his thoughts on our software here in our forums. Just as everyone in this thread is free to express their own thoughts on his earlier comments.
To make a simple analogy in this dialog please look to this: You don't need to like my choice of carpet, you can tell me so, however if you come into my house and scream at the top of your lungs about how you hate it and I am a terrible person for having it you will be exiting my home far quicker than you imagined, or would want. You just wouldn't do that in the real world, it would be crazy. It is a simple mater of courtesy to those that provide not only the software you don't like but the means to express it to millions of viewers per month all for free.
My previous responses were sincere, as was my reminder to remain civil.
I would like to invite you g52 to try any of our software, I think you might be pleasantly surprised. Should you have any questions at all I can personally vouch for myself and the support staff that we would assist you in those questions or concerns.
