Because parrots parrot. They don't need truth. They don't need understanding they just need repetition. They are over in the battlefiled bad company 2 spouting the same thing because the game is so crappy that it crashes up the driver and reverts to software rasterizers.
Same as all the trolls who trolled up the big huge great demand for cpu from gta iv which was subsequently fixed with dozens of patches and driver updates though it still needs tons of work.
If they used linux they'd be on linux chat boards telling everybody to get bigger cpu's because the gallium stack doesn't know how work their hardware right and reverts back to software rasterizers and gives you 100 percent cpu usage and everybody would be giving them massive amounts of ***?
Unfortunately all these new cards will eventually get their drivers worked out enough and windows will get it's dx fixed enough that it won't crash dozens of cards into software rasterizers. They can't do it with AMD video cards because AMD is just doing simple refreshes and not hosing drivers. But nvidia is doing plenty of hosing right now.
It's a collective conciousness phenomenon that expresses itself as a collectivism. They follow intution and guidance and they become like a hive mind but they are being manipulated by it all just by being sympathetic and non-suspicious of it. Once the collectivism is glued together you can make them "right" or so secure in the parroting and overwhelming verification from nothingness that they don't even ask for more information or garner people who resist the collectivism because it's too much hassle. The resistance to it disrupts the collectivism and makes it seek answers to defend it's position and grows them out of the collectivism.
Battlefield bad company 2 release date was march 2nd. It's big giant bag of feces. So the bugs in it cause all kinds of problems with people running it. They look for answers. The answer is that it's a big giant feces bag of bad code. It'll eventually get fixed and won't cause all these problems in another 6 months and run really good on a 2ghz dual core and good on any quad.
But in the mean time people need help and are suggestible. So the collective likes the power rush of being a collective pretending they are actually helping and fixing something. So the run around memeing the needs moar cpu final solution. They aren't working together and aren't conciously plotting this behavior. It just flows through them because they are insecure and like the apparent collectivism of becoming ego extensions of each other and knowing they have so much agreement and support from each other.
