Replying to:  VOYAGERBOY TO RELEASE ANTI-DROID CAMPAIGN by voyagerboy   Oct 11, 2010, 10:51 AM

You mean it's going to get worse? I rather thought you were already on a campaign to "warn people of droid deception". Oh wait, you said that was a "clandestine", so now you're moving from "a clandestine" to "a campaign". So the obvious question then becomes, if I hear a news item about how awful the droid is, how do I know it came from you? Is it going to say "voyagerboy said..."? Inquiring minds want to know!

By the way, I'm still waiting to hear about the "hardships" this family of phones caused you.

I'm also curious how you claim to have been "duped" when there have been several of us repeatedly over the last year and then some, telling you that you need to get a different phone, and yet you continue to spam us with your nonsensical bile.

Oh yeah, and one other note, if the droid was as bad as you claim, don't you think consumer sentiment would have swung against it my now? Lets take Internet Explorer usage as an example. Reviled almost universally by anyone who knows anything about computers, it has nevertheless maintained massive market share (above 50%) for several years. Only in the last quarter has it finally dropped below 50% market share. Why? Because despite it's shortcomings, which by the way have been widely publicized by national media, it isn't "that bad" that the average user sees it as a problem. The tide is changing, as more people are realizing what other browsers can offer. The point is, even in the face of mountains of evidence, it took ages for people to come around on Internet Explorer; and there simply isn't any such evidence, let alone a mountain of it, in this case.

Another example, more relevant here, is the Devour. It never really caught on, due in large part to the MotoBlur, which got a relatively undeserved bad rap by consumers. Consumers in droves flocked away from it and towards other phones. And what was the end result? Moto was forced to change their Blur, and the result is a much improved experience, and consumers are NOT rejecting the new version, at least as much as they rejected the earlier version. The point in all this is bad products get a bad rap, and it companies either fix the product, or go out of business; usually without a need for a concerted consumer effort, and certainly without a need for a small minority of whiners to blast their drivel. Remember the Ford Pinto? Remember Firestone?

PS Yes I know I'm not supposed to feed the trolls, but I'm doing it anyway. Smile
