    Please, iMore, not all BB users are as pathetic as this troll and his troll friends. Don't judge is all by those losers.

    Fair enough. We have our ghetto dwellers, too. But we (mostly the mods) do a good job of keeping them in check.

    Just so you know we don't all behave this way.

    I happen to use several phones and love them all. They feel allegiance must be paid to one platform only. And their trolling is not indicative of everyone at CB.

    I apologise for their behaviour.

    Default Article from Gizmodo: Sorry Apple, the BlackBerry Z10 Is Hotter Than the iPhone

    As I've stated so many times before, I adored every Blackberry device I've ever owned and I promoted them BIG TIME! After the original Bold, however, the devices, in my opinion, started falling behind the times and I opted to look elsewhere for my smartphone needs. Still, I have always looked forward to the day when I return to using BB devices and I still do. Having said that, I cannot ignore the fact that Apple has effectively fulfilled my smartphone needs via the iPhone. I purchased my very first mobile phone in 1989 and I don't recall ever holding onto a phone as long as I've held on to my iPhone 4S. I am that pleased with it and that is why I cannot see myself returning to BB devices with this initial round of RIM's re-emergence. My eye is on the next iPhone. Period! Now after that, who knows? I am not counting out a return to Blackberry sometimes "next" year....

    Wow qbnkelt I'm surprised, I'm always on CB and you've never said stuff like that to me (or anyone else). I'm no troll, I was just having some fun, and wanted to see someone elses view on the article besides BB fans. I love ios devices, and never said anything bad about them here or anywhere else. I merely posted an article. I've always respected your posts but that's not cool what you did there. I'm not "pathetic", a "troll" or a "loser". I have the right to post what ever I want wherever I want as long as its respectful and on topic, which it was. No mod has the right to ban me because I did nothing wrong. I expected hate from the ios diehards but not from you...

It's not just for Angry Birds or Words with Friends, it's work related apps I use daily that are on iOS but not on BB. If the apps I need are there and if the device performs as solidly as RIM said it will, then maybe.

    But RIM's track record isn't the greatest and they've got a lot to overcome.

    So, let me get this straight. You came to iMore hoping to start a flame war by posting an article that said BB is cooler than iPhone.

    You acted like a spoiled two year old and when qbnkelt apologized for you, you get offended?

    I think you owe her an apology. A lot of us here on iMore are also members on CB and to those of us who aren't you gave CB members a bad name by your rantings.
    Dude! You slapped a fish. You punched it! Why would you hit it?

    I owe nothing to her, nor does she owe anything to me. I have been nothing but respectful to everyone this whole time. I wanted to see what Apple people thought of the article, THAT IS ALL. I don't care if you rip bb to pieces because that is your opinion, and you have a right to your opinion. I do have a problem when someone rips ME apart just because they don't like my post.

    Your right though, maybe I am whining, should I just report her for rude and offensive behavior instead? I thought it would be more mature to say it to her directly instead of trying to get her banned or receive a warning.

    P.S. The fact that she "apologized" for me was even more insulting

    Others would, I wouldn't, obviously there is a bias towards many cb users but that does not mean were all rabid animals. I appreciate all OS's, heck I couldn't live without the iphone 4 I use as my ipod.

    Easy folks.


    Let's keep things civil, device discussion is good, but let's not put down good members, even if they are from other sites.

    If the discussion makes you want to post something you shouldn't then pass on the reply button and let the thread drop. We don't want to create drama that we didn't even want in the first place.

    Unfortunately sure. There's some gain with black berry. But a recent survey just showed that user interest with iPhone is at around 35% Android is in the 50% area, Windows Phone jumps to a 11% from 2% and Blackberry to just a 7%. I wouldn't get to excited. Just wait until Ubuntu mobile comes out and see what competition there is.

    (These are from a poll of interest. So its bound to be different.)

    In my opinion Android & iPhone are awfully alike. While Windows Phone is almost completely different which is why it is gaining its popularity. The Blackberry however is along the line with Android & iPhone and users who use Android & iPhone are most likely already satisfied with what they have.

    Let's see....you come from CB into this site and so you represent CB here. You post an inflammatory article that states that the upcoming BB phone is better than the iPone. You go on the offensive when someone states that he/she would not get a BB. Then you go on the defence of someone who has been trolling iMore.
    And you state that you are not a troll.
    If it walks like a duck, acts like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's not a zebra.

    If someone from iMore were to go to CB to do what you did here I would be all over that person. What possible motive could you have had to post that article, then made your cheeky comments afterwards, then defend a person from CB with a history of trolling here?

    You are mistaken if you think I have not called out trolls, pro BB and anti BB, on CB. I have had my wrist slapped by PK for it. And Branta. But here is the thing.....I own a 4S. I want to come back here without having me associated with the behaviour that has come from the CB trolls over the last couple of days. And I want the folks here to know that we are not all interested in trolling iMore over at CB.

    As far as the hate.....you must not know me very well on CB. I own and use all three major platforms and I do not tolerate misinformation on any of them. I do not tolerate the iSheep comment nor the cyborg comment. Because those comments are asinine. These are bits of plastic and glass and wire, and rude behaviour is unwarranted. I own an iPad that I love...if that makes me an iOS diehard so be it. I also own an SGIII that I love. If that makes me an Android diehard so be it. I loved my BBs....one after the other. I hope I can love the Z10, I REALLY do. I am platform agnostic, I choose what I want when I want it. I am simply a geek.

    If someone trolls I call it out. PK has given me one infraction. Branta gave me a good tongue lashing. I speak my mind and I don't get into any one else's right to have their say. But passive aggressive trolling posts.....nah. I call those out.

    If you do not want to be perceived as a troll, I would rethink whom you defend and the posts you make.

    Take your posts in the aggregate. Take the posts of the people you have defended from CB who have trolled iMore.

    You represent CB here. I represent CB here. I want a clear distinction drawn between your behaviour and those whom you have defended and me, because I intend to stay on this site as an iPhone and iPad user. I will need expertise here. I don't want this kind of post associated with me, or with CB in general.

    To claim victimization after you have gone on the offensive is disingenuous in the extreme.

    And don't forget.....post history is a clear and visible indication of where you have been.

    And yes, I apologised for bad behaviour from the CB trolls here. It's the ethical thing to do, if I'm going to frequent iMore. It is good breeding, and I was reared properly.
