Please make this distinction. If this forum was closed, David would disable ALL posting on it!1
Forum, thread, whatever, as to David, he is more than happy to leave this forum alone, & he says that he will leave closing it, because of arguments etc, to me, so, if anyone closes it, I shall re-open it, can I just make myself clear here, whatever the result, I shall of course go along with it, that's what voting is all about, I once had a position as chief voting officer for a local council, so I know what I'm talking about.

It would of been easier if you just set up a poll on the thread. (I think if you made it you can click thread options and add a poll that way.)

That is actually not true. I'm using Vista and they highly recommend that you install drivers signed by Microsoft, but if they aren't, they're not going to gimp your computer.

That's almost as ridiculous as the recent rumor that if you didn't have a legally activated version of Windows Vista, Microsoft would disable your computer.

Yeah, one of the complaints was about HDCP. Another reason why I'm not ready to adopt any of the next-gen formats like Blu-Ray and HD-DVD.

Can you please use proper grammar and punctuation? That was the biggest run-on sentence i've ever seen in my life.

In terms of the actual thread topic, I think if you are gonna post some stuff then there should be a warning, I really don't want to view stuff like skinning animals, yeah it exists, but I don't want to see it especially as I think that the posts have been posted just to make an impact!!!

In other forums I use, the post popular term is NSFW, "Not suitable for Work"
