    Seems to be a way of life here. I have been watching very closely threads being closed and moved and buried left and right anytime someone makes an accusation of the poor quality on HTC and Sprint products in general. It would seem to me at least that anything posted is the opinion of the thread maker but is still valuable information in making a purchase choice of an HTC EVO product or Sprint service. Personally I don't need a Nanny to tell me that there is lack of proof to back this or that up when something is said here. I feel I can make my own decisions on that matter. It seems to me that this site is very heavily supported by HTC and Sprint and this site is censored anytime a strong negative thread is produced to make people aware of HTC products short comings. I'm not sure why everyone comes to these forums but my reason it to hear the good and the BAD and I feel I'm not always getting the whole truth here because HTC and Sprint heavily invested in this internet forum company.

    Perfect solution. Find another forum that meets your needs. Don't like it here, then go someplace else. See how easy that is troll??

    Now go away.

    And you're not the new sock puppet for the tin foil donor from yesterday whose thread we all begged the mods to close?

    "dorp it like its hot"

    in before ....moved, closed.. hidden from the public view!




    seriously?
    I've been here a long time.. few months :p
    and I dont see what you are talking about. Sure..it does happen, but it does for a good reason. Not because the mods are bias or something.

    first.. it is an evo forum.. so members are more geared towards what they have and love.

    2nd.. most only come on here if they have issues. so you hear more of the complaints. the regulars here try to help best they can. The general public that is happy with EVO do not come here.

    3rd... the mods try to keep this place and clean as possible. They move or combine threads that are the same.

    4th... the mods close threads that get out of hand, because of bad seeds or trolls. This is to keep the harmony and not in fighting. Be nice or get out!!!

    so... what you are saying is not fair.. you need to keep reading more!

    btw.. welcome to the forum...
    now.. bye.. :cool:

    What is this nonsense with people saying that the EVO forum is Pro EVO, and people with the device back up there phone, etc? Hellllllo, that's what the owners of any device do. Sorry, I happen to really like my EVO, and Sprint. If you like another device, or another carrier, go into their forums! The EVO is one of the best phones on the market right now, and from the looks of it, a lot of people in here feel the same way. No its not perfect, but what phone is these days. Either way, if your not an EVO fan, or owner, don't expect any love in THE EVO FORUMS...commen sense.

    where is the proof that these companies are paying this "internet forum company" any type of compensation? any publicity is good publicity on anything/anyone. thats not the reason certain threads are closed. some members here like to feed on the doubts of others and only post to start a riot/rumor or to make members who are looking for more CREDIBLE info on the android platform start to doubt based on someones "opinion" on what they think is 100% fact.

    the majority of users who post such threads AND the ones who come out of "lurking" mode, such as the OP of this thread, to post their distaste on why certain threads are closed usually have only been on the site a month or less and a handful of posts....

    so before this thread gets closed, ill give the OP of this post an hour or so to post the information he or she has obtained to point out that sprint and HTC have paid any money to this website....

    Did you even read what OP wrote???

    I will NOT relax when mods and the owners of a board I actively participate on are accused of impropriety by a stupid troll.

    Are you seriously thinking that HTC and sprint have gotten in bed together to moderate this particular sub forum? How long have you been wearing your tin foil hat? Making preposterous claims like that and not citing the sources is ridiculous. It's obvious that you have injected your personal opinion into your post and presented it as fact.

    Obvious troll here. Ignore them and they usually will go away on there own.

    If it was run by Sprint, wouldn't they remove the root threads and WiFi tethering?

    Maybe the OP should look at the "Support and Troubleshooting" subforum. Usually if there are issues they get moved here. They just don't "disappear".

    Would you know about the various issues this phone is having if it wasn't for this forum? The botched OTA update a few days ago is a perfect example; how many more people would have bricked their phones if it wasn't for this forum?

    I haven't been here long but I've not seen anything to suggest that the admins or mods of this forum are censoring to quell open discussion about some of the issues with this phone.

    I do agree that some members are too sensitive and quick to go the attack, but you will have those types of people on any large forum like this. The mods can try and ask these people to relax a little but short of banning them, which is an extreme step, there's not much you can do about them short of just ignoring their childish behavior.

    Good point. This forum is actually at the forefront of bringing issues to people's attention. How many threads have we seen where we are suppose to mass email HTC about an issue. A lot. How is this possible in the OP's theory?
