Where did I lay down a rule? I'll say it again, I am merely requesting that you take discussion from previous battles to the profiles to avoid confusion! A simple request, and you guys are getting all upset.

It seems you're the one getting his knickers in a twist.

I would say that the thread topic is merely that of a discussion on brands; if we stuck to the current topic all the time, it would reduce discussion, and discourage unfamiliar users, who usually post about Apple and Microsoft. Of course we should stick to the battle on hand, but if it means that all ongoing discussions on previous topics, even if ongoing must cease immediately, then it's senseless.

Adding on, I like my 3 year old Hp 2309 screen; it's large enough to use as a movie screener, but not too large till it becomes like a plasma tv.

Neither... Toshiba for the win. But, I don't know. Guess I have to go with Dell. My dad's old laptop is Dell. It is about 5 years old with Windows Vista and still booking along well. My school computers were Dell. They were a bit slow but not bad for having literally hundereds of computers hooked up to a server. So Dell.

Divides 600 million over 30 days* That's 20 million a day on average. The Super Bowl has 170 million for just a few hours.

the final netherlands vs spain was seen by over 700million people in total.

thats 1 match, 1 evening like the superbowl but then 4 times as much spectators ;)

===================

HP wins for me.
Dell costs allot extra for just a average machine.

Both are not that good in my opinion I'd never actually buy any of their products because if I want a pc I'll buy parts and build it myself and if I want a laptop I'd go with someone like acer or asus.

I'm not the one overreacting. Is it really worth you guys getting so upset?

if we stuck to the current topic all the time

The whole thread has pretty much stuck to the current topic without discussion of past battles with no problem. This last one was a rather large discussion, and in order to keep the thread running smoothly and without confusion, I requested you take further discussion to the profiles... Tell me, what is so bad about that? Does the discussion end? No, it is merely relocated.

it would reduce discussion, and discourage unfamiliar users, who usually post about Apple and Microsoft

Informing the new users that particular battle has ended is no big deal... Been doing it the whole thread.

Of course we should stick to the battle on hand, but if it means that all ongoing discussions on previous topics, even if ongoing must cease immediately, then it's senseless.

I thought about that, but I feel that the discussions can be carried on via user profiles without problem. The discussion does not cease, it is merely relocated. Is that too hard to understand?

I feel we have discussed this enough here... It's throwing the thread off topic. Contact me on my profile.

the final netherlands vs spain was seen by over 700million people in total.

Please take further discussion of previous battles to user profiles. It helps avoid confusion in the ongoing battle.

I'm not upset; I am merely pointing out that the WC is the larger competition.
You're upset that I'm still on the previous topic.

Usually in a way that chases them away.

I don't think a discussion needs to be cloistered up amongst two people only, unless it gets personal, like the WERP.

Long time ago, my brother destroyed my favorite game disc (it was long long ago [rise of nation]) so i, by myself called there support line. And they sent me a new one! Gold edition!

Since then im a loyal fan.
