    I have a very strong opinion of MR forums but I’ll leave it at that.

    I like their blogs, though.

    As for ‘Relentless Power’, I’m sure mods will do what they have to, in the time being.
    No need to bring in a personal vendetta from another forum

    Welcome to iMore! I'm vaguely familiar with MR forums but I found iMore and settled in here happily. I hope you'll be happy here, but agree with TwitchyPuppy that bringing complaints about users on other forums, or other forums for that matter is unnecessary.

    I do like their videos on YouTube.
    Other than that, I haven’t had the chance to check out the MR’s forums.

    I’ve read the forum before. Haven’t had a chance to join it. Don’t understand how you get into a fight online. But I guess that’s what bullying online is.

    I guess some folks have nothing better to do with their life than picking fights on the internet.

    Yeah that’s the way but doesn’t work. He insults you and provokes you for a fight. So he can report later to mods.
    My point still stands.

    Oh, I do.
    I can guarantee you there are plenty of people to whom that happened.

    Therefore, not playing the person’s “game” is the key to not let them win.


    However, I see how frustrating that whole situation can be.

    I think you’re right. Who knows maybe I got trapped and ripped.

    I’m done with this forum thing for now.

    While I MUCH prefer iMore, I have found MacRumors to be ok! The forums are lively enough, and I have never had an issue with their moderation team. I have found the members to be generally friendly to me. Sure there is always the occasional troll, BUT we have them too. And MacRumors blog has a pretty decent Apple products buyers guide!

    Haven't ventured over to MacRumors in what feels like a very long time. There were some decent consistent folks there but I've always appreciated how friendly the big lugs around here are.

    I asked MR to cancel my membership. I reported a poster for bragging about sexually assaulting women and they did nothing. I filed a police report with my local pd. The poster bragged about it several times. Sad site. Should be taken down.

    The sad thing is you wasting RL police resources because some anonymous internet persona wrote something you disagree with, likely for the express purpose of getting you worked up.

    Link to the thread where this happened?

    You do realize that Mobile Nations sites:

    - Actively Allowed Forums/Threads where people (including minors) could share BBM Pins and IM User Names for the purpose of Sexting? (Was very common on CrackBerry for a long time - and took a LOT of complaining to get these threads taken down - they were routinely defended even by moderators).

    - Actively circulates porn or told people (including minors) how to to access it. Porn shows people images glorifying things like Domestic Violence, Sexism, Rape, Child Molestation, and Abuses of Power Dynamic (Coach/Athlete, Teacher/Student, Boss/Applicant, Cop/Suspect), etc. Was kind of common on AndroidCentral, for a while (don't currently read it enough to know if it's still a thing).

    Example: http://www.androidcentral.com/vr-por...ate-guide-nsfw

    I have an issue with these things, but I don't file police reports on it, because it's simply "difference of opinion/preference" category of things. I just don't read that junk and go on with my life.

    I can't take your "I reported a poster for bragging about sexually assaulting women" statement seriously, because I seen a woman complaining about "Brutal Sexism" on a game forum and her evidence was a guy telling her she "has a nice voice."

    More evidence is needed. Convince us. Don't just make salacious statements and hope they stick because the thread is bandwagoning the hate and it's PC to "speak out" about these things.

    You haven't even linked to the thread in question...

    People like you reporting trash like this is why cases like the School Shooter weren't taken as seriously as it was. They probably get thousands of crazy people sending in "tips" about things that any reasonable person should just roll their eyes at and move on about... Law enforcement does not have the resources to thoroughly investigate every single niggling case of speech you have an issue with. It's NOT GOOD to waste resources on your random internet vendettas. it creates a "Cries Wolf" atmosphere that can be damaging and endanger people's real lives. You have to exercise some level of responsibility when it comes to these things.

    Getting forums taken down? You people spend way too much time on Twitter and Facebook.

    How about you just not go there? That's what I do.

    And before someone gets their emotions in a tizzy, my family is dealing with a situation where someone claims to have been molested/raped by a relative when they were younger. These are serious situations. If she's telling the truth, I'd rather the police not be wasting their times surfing MacRumors looking at troll posts from anonymous internet people. Police resources are not unlimited. That is why there are laws against filing false reports, pranking 9-1-1, etc.

    No no one deserves to be believed by default, simply because they said something. Everything needs to be investigated. This should never be a de facto open-shut case, considering how damaging it can be to someone's life.

    People are trying so hard to come across as humane, that they are being inhumane in the process. Congratulations.

    Wow. First of all I didn’t waste anyone time. The police are there for a reason. Besides he’s a friend and did it on his time.

    Angry? The fact that you are comparing this to school shooting is incredibly sad and demented.

    It’s people like you who know nothing of the situation that look foolish and uneducated.

    The person bragged about flying his drone up to women’s windows and filming. Then uploading the video to porn sites. But I’m sure your ok with that. I mean a school shooting might have been prevented.

    Oh. I don’t use Facebook or twitter. So wrong again.

    Yeah, Relentless is the one that has gotten me banned from MR. The mods there will let him do whatever he wants and ban everyone else he causes issues with.
