    My assumption would be based on what I've seen that android users (commonly called fandroids) only want to belittle the genuine users of iOS.
    I have personally tried other operating systems for mobile products and genuinely DIG iOS as my preferred OS, with all it's baggage.

    Android users seem to enjoy sh!tcanning those of us humans who like iOS. So maybe that is one of the reasons for your slow approval on this site.

    I'm certainly not going to head over to you android site and sh!tcan your personal choice.

    Each site has their own post count. While you post on AC all of the time, it takes a bit for your posts to automatically post here, where your post count is two. It'd be the same on CB, or WC, etc.

    You haven't posted enough on the boards, so you're still in the probationary period.

    Yes right now until you reach 10 posts, all of your posts are being moderated before they are posted. As SeanHRCC and Laelipoo have said it's like a probationary period.

    sima down. some people can like BOTH OS's. I have been using iOS for 5+ years and love it. My S4 is one month old and for sale to go back to iPhone.
    I work at apple and wanted to try android to see what it was all about.
    it's a great OS. iOS is better imo.
    People need to stop being so defensive over their phone OS choice, geez. its just a phone.

    I agree, but could you not have simply asked your question without referencing a different site?

    Gonna have to disagree with you here. Mentioning a sister site didn't warrant
    that dumb reply in post #2.

    We'll disagree sometimes, D.

    The OP post wouldn't have made any sense without stating that though. He thought since he was a regular poster in one of the sister sites he was unsure why he was on probation here.

    Without that info it wouldn't had made a whole lot of since.

    Slightly OT but I just wanted to add that being a mod in another forum, I very much appreciate what a delicate balance this is and how well this was handled.

    Thank you.

    PS: it makes up for the time I wasn't allowed to sell something without 50 posts here while I have 8k+ posts, and almost 11 years in the other forum - not an Android forum btw.

    In a perfect world, it wouldn't be needed, and we wouldn't have to use it. Trust me, we all want that.

    Let me know if you find that world though, because I would love some chocolate and bacon that were actually healthy for you

    It's because you didn't start your post with "Mother may I ? Being a 1000 + poster on another Mac site and 300+ on CB, I felt a little frustration at first too.

    How 'bout chocolate covered bacon?
    Umm... I think I am going to order me some.

    Vosges Mo's Dark and Milk Bacon and Chocolate Candy Bars and Library, Pancake Mix, Flying Pig, Bacon Eggs, Gifts - Mo's Milk Chocolate Bacon Bar

    And hey, since its gluten free, it must be good for you.
