[trying to de-escalate...]
Didn't read that page fully? Seems they don't like us much, especially "Charlotte". I had done a Googlemsfn site:neowin.netto show another user how "useful" they now are (not very). Doing the reverse yields a lot as well. My point being, since "Charlotte" popped on them about being "Windows 8 Fanboys", I thought I would chirp in about it. Funny, they look to US for Win8 "fixes" too, not to mention MANY other tools, tips, (etc). Seems our website is NOT to be discussed over there (note the LAST post and topic LOCKED).
Just funny that the REAL techie sites (like RVM, MSFN) get the recognition, but not "high hit counts" but Fanboy Websites do.
Oh, well, who cares - found an MSFN thread that basically said (sic) "ignore them - they send non-Fanboys to us". (Main Forum "Affiliated" - no RVM...)
P.S. I have no burning desire for Win8/2012 - have only "battled" (de-trojan'ed) someone else' Win7 so far (will go for that one or maybe 2k8).
Yeah, I did read the thread but what threw me was the part about "RyanVM." I'd never heard of this (him? it?) and it sounded like somebody's nickname, so when you mentioned it I went looking for a "RyanVM" in that Neowin thread to see what they had said about us. (I didn't have a clear idea of the affiliation thing, either.) Of course I didn't find anybody posting under that name, which left me confused. Now I know better.
Thanks for explaining.
P.S. For the record, I enjoy and value Charlotte's frequent, in-depth, and incisive reporting/analysis.
