Was there such a time? I've only been into building my own computer, mostly for the sake of gaming, and video editing and converting, for about 4 years now and every damn thread I read is full of bickering and name calling. I'll never understand the mentality of vehemently defending a major corporation, to the extend that you are hateful and disrespectful to other human beings. People's priorities are way screwed up. I just traded my GTX 670 for a 7970, not because I have any issue with nVidia, but because I enjoy trying out different hardware. And I'll never understand when someone asks advice about a new AMD processor, why people flood the thread telling him he is worthless thrash because he only has $200 to spend. It's great that you might be able to buy a new processor and motherboard whenever you like but not everyone is in that situation. Anyway, being an internet bully is pretty damn easy, I'm sure if asked a question face to face it'd be a different story.
Clockster has it exactly right, Stop being fanboi's and start being enthusiasts.
