    Well I think a bunch of the people who hate Crackberry Kevin for getting an iPhone flipped a lid when they saw him on the feed. And then they embarrassed themselves publicly by acting like socially inept 15 year olds who can't get the girl they like so they trash her. Pathetic. I heard some of the comments.

    In light of how offensive people have found it, glad that I missed it.

    Was there anything about mom jeans?

    That has been Crackberry from 2012 and on. Kevin isn't even the Editor-In-Chief there anymore and they still get on his a$$. That used to be a great place to go to. But a lot of the members there suck.

    That’s funny. Don’t they have the same upper management as iMore? Somebody sleeping at the switch over there?

    Yeah, Chris Parsons is good. Crackberry has always been very much about cleaning up the troll trash which is pretty much anything anti-Blackberry. Kevin initiated a policy like that a couple of years back and the members just went with it. The people running CB now can't just dramatically veto that because there would be riots over there. James has plenty much already on his plate and doesn't need to deal with that.

    It really is anarchy over there, and they promote the hate of other brands (Apple and Android) simply because that's what's driving the traffic I assume. Those forums have become somewhat of a cesspool lately. I still enjoy their front page news as long as you stay out of the comments section.

    I think there are some mixed messages around those parts about what "Mobile Nations" is supposed to be. You head over to Crackberry and it's more like "Warring Nations". I don't think the top brass can be completely blamed either, I think it's just out of control. Plus, if my memory serves me well, some of the staff and volunteers were originally instigators in various different "phone wars". They may be less publicly abusive, but you can guarantee that it also affects how they handle others being abusive and berating.

    Like when Kevin posted a picture of himself in a crouching position with an iPad under him, insinuating he was releasing his feces on it, holding his Blackberry Playbook (big LOL), all while linking Rene's iPad review. I thought that was kind of messed up. Playful or not, all these guys work hard on their reviews and that's not a way I'd link the review to my fren-emy's site. So it's no wonder the members at CB act the way they do.

    Yup, even if it was meant playfully, the militants/zealots/whatever you want to call them clearly take signals like the from their leadership as a warcry.
