You don't come to MyBB for hardware reviews or anything like that really.
You come here for news, read the forums or share experiences pertaining to the local broadband community.
All the other stuff I have found to be on the shallow side. It is only logical that for the most trusted computer hardware analysts, for example, you go to anandtech, bittech, or whatever well known hardware site that you prefer. For cellphones you go to gsmarena etc etc.
Anyway I still think the OP has every right to air his complaints on the forums here. And it's also quite sad how many trolls are just posting TL;DR and telling the OP he is an idiot, just shows how lazy we have become. I admire the way he manages to put his gripes into words, very thorough. Also think Derrick handled it very well, and the worst that can happen is for his reviewing skills to improve.
OP, you got your wish. Derrick is gone.
What happened to him?
Pity. I had no beef with him. He was doing a lot of good work in the background.
Some people need to get out more.
Nobody ever forced you to read Derrick's articles, which I actually enjoyed.
All the best Derrick!
On a related note, I've begun noticing that various news agencies around the world, CNN, BBC, The Guardian, to name just a few, have begun allowing their writers to be more emotional and less concise/professional in their tone of writing these days. In most cases it amounts to nothing more than sensationalist 'fluff', though it does highlight that there's a portion of the world that's quite obviously becoming more accustomed to less informative and more entertaining articles...
Anyway, Cramer, if you're reading this, good luck at uni.
Good luck to anyone whose ambition it is to please everyone with their writing.
