The device is really a choice for people.. A choice that is truly a moral choice..
Some believe they are doing no wrong because SONY has did them wrong SO MUCH..
Other believe that your just hurting Game Devs who make the great games
Others believe that they would of ever bought more then one or two games so its not hurting anyone in their eyes..
Their is alot of ideas/opinions .. Who is anyone to say what is right and wrong in some of these situations..
BOTTOM LINE IT IS A PERSONAL CHOICE..
so if you dont like it WAIT for the OPEN source..
Dont stir the pot as you are accually promoting it because when it comes down to it, its about personal beliefs...
You tell someone the news and what they can do.. then they hear your personal opinion that will vary from user to user.. A month/week/days down the road they still remenber the news but not your personal opinion of yours if it was different then their own.. So every person you may talk out of TB 4 more may relized what they could use it for...
SO i ask why is PS3Hax promoting it any way if you have dislike? (your saying anyone that see value in it are "junk people")
(weather it is news on the front page,
Ads that are up by lightgate your promoting it.. you have said "Well that is lightgate".. well if they are one of the biggest sellers.. well its simple to say hey why are we supporting that company, THAT is profiting off TB?, while we call our own members "junk people")
So then if these people are "junk people" your fellow members, then i have to ask what would that make the resellers you help promote?, what would that make Ps3Hax in your opinion?
Personal choices.. let it be that.. freedom of choice is a good thing....
As I agree with the fact that it boils down to personal opinion and all, there is absolutely nothing wrong with stating your opinion on something you read online (in this case TB). Many people are unaware what TB is, some who may share the similar opinions of
towards the fiasco that is TB (once they know the whole story behind the dongle).
So it is perfectly fine for me, him, and many others who are completely disgusted by the dongles existence, and the mentality of many of the users supporting it to leave our remarks in TB threads as long as it don't violate forum rules. You never know who may be considering buying a dongle, who are later persuaded against doing so due to their (TB devs) shady practices.
As for this site supporting TB (because of third party ads), this is about as ridiculous as it gets. Yes, I'm sure Pirate could work it out with lightake to where they are NOT displayed if he really wanted to, but he is busy and it really is not that big of a deal. Just because the ads are there from their SPONSOR, does not mean they/everyone that is part of the sire (admins all the way to noobs) PROMOTE what is in every single ad... Refusing to display a sponsor's ad(s) is not really worth potentially losing a sponsor over, or the revenue gained that helps to maintain the site.
