Thanks Hankers and Jafo.
That you are an early user and you feel entitled to ignore Internet etiquette, apparently. Your research demonstrates that you are willing to do battle to defend your "right" to abuse your hosts.
No, what this - and now the replies by the forum administrators above - should tell you is that you're assuming a LOT about things you know nothing about. I specifically said in my post 'Stardock and Winstep have always been on friendly terms' - you should have taken my word for it.
Despite being 'competitors' (if you can call it that given the scale of things lol) we are also all friends and acquaintances here who go back a very long time - and, as Jafo said, 'a rising tide lifts all boats'. This is as true now as it was then.
Anyway, I hope this puts a definite end to your 'you should be banned' argument.
Ah, he's the developer/owner of Winstep; I've suspected as much for a year now.
My avatar should have given you a clear clue, no?
I don't have any complaint about describing Winstep, once or twice, but I don't care for knocking Stardock by ascribing silly indefensible positions and decisions to them, then repeating the process of both every three months or so, indefinitely. That kind of thing can irritate people.
No, that kind of thing can obviously irritate YOU. You just decided to take pains that aren't yours to take, and it didn't pan out the way you thought it would.
You have already accused me of spreading FUD and now of "knocking Stardock by ascribing silly indefensible positions and decisions to them". Since you act like you know more than me, despite backing none of your claims with actual quotes or facts, please prove it (should be easy) - or choose your weapons (lol).
If you didn't like or agree with my reply to YOUR criticism of Winstep software, you could have simply debated those points with me. If not here, in another thread. Instead you don't counter-argue ANYTHING, all you do is make silly accusations and point the finger at me while shouting 'Shame, shame!' at the top of your lungs - with the obvious intention of causing harm.
Had I done ANY of the things you accuse me of, the moderators here would have been the first to call me at attention. I know this, they know this.
