    Lol, the whole point of this site is to post things we think could be true, but without having evidence to prove it!!!

    I believe this phenomena is called speculation.

    Do you know 100% if the information you posted is correct? If not, DON'T POST IT for I will be one step behind you with all my knowledge and if I catch you, you will be made to look foolish.

    Incorrect by scientific standards. There is zero speculation when it comes to how phone hardware and software works. Its only works one way and thats it. The problem arises when people post what they "think" they know when in reality they have no knowledge in the subject. This is a huge problem on internet forums and the main reason so much misinformation is spread around. Misinformation begins with reality creationists. They basically create their own reality to fill in for their lack of knowledge and in this warped reality is where misinformation is born.

    Psh, life would be boring without misinformation. Misinformation adds vigour and spunk to life. And Life without spunk isn't worth living for.

    Um... I highly doubt you know what's "correct" in every situation. I've seen many, many threads where a suggestion, hint, tip or solution works out a problem for some and not for others. You self-appointed internet police very rarely do much other then annoy.

    One more thing Mr. Assault on Misinformation - I think you need to learn the difference between affect and effect. Do some homework and soon enough your grammar could be correct 100% of the time. :rolleyes:

    If the OP is so unhappy with the "misinformation" that he/she claims is rampant on this forum, he/she is more than welcome to find another forum where such things do not exist. No reason to stick around here if it's that much of a problem for him/her.

    On a personal note, I have found much helpful info here that's lead me to a better understanding of what was only a little over a month ago a foreign device to me.

    Hello all....just your friendly administrator here to remind you that I am one of 3 people that say what is and isn't allowed to be posted on these forums. We (Rob, Phases, and Myself) take a very open approach when we see misinformation. We usually leave it up to the community to help each other with what's right and wrong. This thread, however, is definitely wrong. I WILL NOT tolerate members disrespecting other members and I find this thread to be a complete mockery. I'm usually not one to get mad, but now I am. Please don't test my kindness that I'm showing by just closing this thread with no further action.
