Quit bringing up old stuff & just reply directly to my last post.
Ok lets look at this thread again since you think I'm picking on you (which I'm not). The first quote that could be seen as something that could entice an arguement was:

Which I followed up with an attack on using the word "FUD," about our posters.

This was in response to your post about fanatics and whining. Yes taken in context her response to you was entirely classy compared to the post she was replying to.

Or maybe you could start contributing to this forum instead of just complaining.
That was your response. It kind of speaks for itself.

The problem with your defense after another user called you out on it, is the poster wasn't referring to your "news," but your opinions combined with the news that were obviously meant to encite an arguement as quoted above. Her problem wasn't with the news but people being refered to as fanatics and told to quit whining when there was none even going on.

She didn't respond to your news, she responded to your rude opinion. Her response was classy in comparison.
Then I called you out on it and

Right I showed bias against you by telling everyone who was rude to you to stop and pointing out how you incorrectly attacked a new user to this forum. Gal was pointing to your opinions meant to entice arguement not to your news.

That is not a rude opinion either, go back in a bunch of these threads & see how many people are complaining about Blu-Ray & how the "better format" is losing.
As shown here the frustration was more with your opinion not the story although you were correctly called out for your misleading headline. Again this thread wasn't filled with any anti-BD sentiment you brought that baggage into this thread.

So because I support Blu-Ray gal decides that I'm therefore banned from ever posting anything in the HD-DVD section even if it applies directly to HD-DVD & then told to "Go back to BR.com" a site I've never been to!
In what bizarro world is this classy?
No she responded to you calling people fanatics and telling them to quit whining. Again none of that was going on in this thread. You're bringing baggage into this thread.

I've now cleared that up. All the poor behavior is in one post for people to see. I tried to talk this over with you in a PM but you've ignored the effort. There is no bias here by me.
