Discussion on the news itself?
My point is, those were the two replies to respond to others..The second one was clear flamebait.
Read the first posts, it's normal discussion..No-ones flaming or anything, people are commenting on MS not bringing back the start menu, then those people are told that they're "carrying on like a disease"..It's clear who started it in here. If you disagree with someones opinion, feel free to start discussion on it but the thread was dragged off topic by attacking the people and not their opinions. (Something that is against the ToS, may I remind you)

(In case there's doubt, the sticky suggestion is sarcasm, though I wouldn't object.)
Selective reading. Can't say I'm surprised. (Sure, it wasn't aimed directly at you but it's sure as hell applicable)
You mean just like how many times we hear "Just use start8/classicshell", "AMD drivers suck", "but can it run crysis?", etc? It's a forum. People post their opinions here, just gloss over posts if they start to annoy you that much.
I don't see you railing against people who still
post "but can it run Crysis?" or still
post Apple hate with the same vigour as in here despite both being much, much older and more prevalent than the Metro hate.

People are carrying it like a disease.
It's almost always either Rubers, 47 Knucklehead, VulcanDragon, or Zero4549 that derail Windows 8 threads. The problem isn't people discussing Windows 8, it's people derailing every thead about aspects of Windows 8 that AREN'T EVEN BEING DISCUSSED BEFORE HAND
Yup, ^ those people are carrying it like a disease.
And people were talking on topic
What is not on topic about wishing MS had added another, clearly highly sought after, feature to Windows Blue?
The fact of the matter is you
posted the first flamebait comment, the other comment I quoted there was not really flamebait but certainly enough to rustle some jimmies.
Question: What do you actually think is on topic for a thread like this, if not discussing features MS didn't add or could have added? "Looks great! Can't wait to use it!" being posted 100 times wouldn't be any better than the carrying on here, or are we allowed to talk about stuff they could have added as long as it's not Metro related?
