On ARM-powered computer firm in RISC OS port talks :

Pot or bag?

I would suggest that to say something is impolite is some distance from saying it should be banned.

You raise a good point though. Clearly it must be possible to criticise others' work openly. My objection was against the way these criticisms were made.

Alright, you both have a lot of positions on, amongst other issues;

Whether RISCWorld was worth paying for or an inacurate 'rag-on-a-CD';

Use of Urban Dictionary to best describe each others faults;

Whether 'Netsurf' is an important typo;

The relevance of hardware expense to the state of RISC OS;

If coughing constitutes an answer;

The nature of computer ownership.

So I suppose what I said wasn't that correct, sorry. However, what I meant was that instantly turning a series of petty disputes into personal attacks wasn't a pretty spectacle.

It's just, in my opinion, plain impolite to publicly call someone a 'freetard' or insult their professional work.

Again, your lack of ability to read is astonishing. Or perhaps you just like to read more into what is said in the hope it backs up your own pitiful excuse for a position. I have neither acknowledged this nor dismissed it.

As far as I can see, neither you nor Aaron have any obvious position in this argument other than an apparent dislike of each other. Could the two of you possibly consider getting a virtual room somewhere - a cozy, snide email exchange for example - rather than littering one of the only up to date RISC OS public news platforms with your unpleasantly personal tete-a-tetes?

On Dual-head DVI ViewFinder graphics card announced:

Surely this doesn't apply to monitors which only take vga (or hdmi) input? Or is the the higher quality some how retained even though its converted to vga?
