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


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.

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


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!

Well I think I'll say HP simply because of how overpriced Dell's Alienware is.

I have to vote Dell because I've used their products, but not HP's.

I vote for Ferrari. Ferrari was making supercars all the time. Lamborghini didn't even start as a supercar company, they first started making good ol' tractors. A few years later, they started making cars, and later supercars.

where has the ferrari nose gone to? ferrari has is no distinct line that is theirs anymore. at 1st it used to be the lights. then the nose. and now every car is different...

Is it bad that I don't know these brands?

I guess I'll pick Lamborghini, mostly because of the bull, its fast, its tough, maybe that represents their cars too.

Wha... Are you kidding?!

You really need me to tune you up R2. Your firmware is seriously out date.

I just had a look at a few pictures on google to get a better idea of them because I'm not really into cars but I've got to say Lamborghini cars seem to look quite a lot nicer IMO so I vote for Lamborghini.

For me, Lamborghini cars all look somewhat the same and that style that they all look like, I don't like. Ferrari also doesn't have a lot of variety, but they do have more, and they all look rather nice. I'm for the aesthetics, not the mechanics. I vote Ferrari.
