I quoted Winston Churchill because it was more polite than saying dumbshit comments like that make apple fans look like childish assholes.

Is that lively enough for you?

Oh and nice move in using another Google asset to rebut without even thinking about it. I'm sure all the fandroids have their panties in a wad over that...and google will have made a little more money in any resulting clicks to further fund android.

It's fighting trolling with trolling. Fortunately, our version of trolling doesn't take place on websites where it shouldn't.

 

If you're bothered by the anti-trolling, isn't that an indicator of something? 1wink.gif

It's an indicator that I believe that "fighting trolling with trolling" just makes the forums a fucking cesspit and makes the rest of us look like idiots.

 

But given that you're the moderator it's not such a huge surprise now is it?

Would the former were lessened, neither would be necessary, and the latter would be frowned upon as much.

It'd be a lot less funny if this theory of yours made sense, but then it would make sense. I'm sort of torn which one I want you to believe. I mean, I'm all about truth, but humor's great, as well.

I've seen you troll these forums and sometimes it's humorous but mostly tiresome given the frequency.  

 

So my point is that it is no surprise that "fighting trolling with trolling" is viewed as a good thing as a matter of forum policy since it fits your posting style.

 

It's a policy that works only if all you want is an echo chamber populated by trolls and counter-trolls.

As a NZ'er I found this post offensive and derogatory towards our men in blue who are doing fine work.  Unfortunately I can not see which of the seven TOS it violates but I demand TS delete this obnoxious post for its contentious nature.

Are you serious? I'm a NZ'er and don't find the post offensive and or derogatory towards our Police.

I assume that you are not trolling or being sarcastic and are just extremely sensitive and naive to the comic nature of the lewd innuendo that is implied? All the author of the doctored image is implying is that apple maps is a sub par service.
 
I'd be more worried about your inadvertent discriminatory comment you made stating "men in blue" as it's clear in the photo that the NZ Police force are equal opportunity employer.
 
If one does get upset at such things then perhaps it might be best to avoid interactions with parts of the interweb where there is minimal censorship.

And it's a real place. Of whose existence I was first informed way back in pre-calculus class. I only remember it because our teacher, who was an easy-going guy, wanted to tell the story of his trip there without saying the word, so he checked out the door for administration, quickly wrote it on the board, and erased it immediately.

 

Weird that the memory would be brought back like this.

I'm not sure which part is making fun of the NZ police, it was making fun of the Maps app as in:

- reporting seemingly made-up offensive names
- reporting incorrect location
- causing possible harm from bush fires

It might have been better to go with Dildo Cove but I found it funny that there was a Dildo Trading Post that has nothing to do what it sounds like and of course it matches up with bush fires. You don't want to get stuck in a bush fire near Dildo Cove - I'm sure it's wet enough there that it may not be likely but always play it safe. If it ever happens of course, there's the possibility of moving to Climax Michigan:

Maybe even try F*ing in Austria:

Not New Zealand though, the names are hard to pronounce:

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&safe=off&q=Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu

It's not like I'm making these names up or anything. They're in Google Maps, the gold standard of maps.

Well, maybe not so much. ?

How do they know which police officer logged into which iPad, do they just have one user/password for the whole precinct. The iPad doesn't do secure network login's or multiuser so does that just mean that any officer can use any iPad. Here in Swizerland our Police use Panasonic tablets with built in fingerprint scanners. Australian police must be hurting for cash if their using a non-tough consumer product. Good for Apple here but the iPad would be my last choice in the field. There are companies who make better tablets for Police field work like Getac, Havis, Fujistu, Xplore and Panasonic. There's going to be a lot of reports being filled out for broken iPads before the years out. If my kids can break an iPad by only dopping it 2.5 feet off the ground then I can just imagine what these cops iPads will look like after one month of use.

Both my phones - work and personal - are on Vodafone, so I can compare. In Glenfield mall, for example, there are two spots where my 3Gs will have no service at all. I'd normally blame it on Vodafone, except that my (otherwise crappy) Nokia E5 seems to be doing nice, showing strong signal and all that.

I did notice quite a number of posts around forums, from people claiming they moved from V to T recently and could not be happier about that, but it is always hard to estimate, but it is always hard to estimate how large (and how vocal) group actually is...

 

Actually there is a valid reason for this.

 

The Nokia E5 is Quad-band whereas the iPhone 3G/S is only Tri-Band.

 

Vodafone do not support 3G on anything less than 2100mHz I think it is. I had this issue with my iPad 1 and my iPhone 4. The iPhone picked up 3G with no problems but I couldn't even get a signal with the iPad or if I could it wouldn't be 3G but only GPRS.

ahh - thanks for that gem. I was at a loss why my wife's 3GS wasn't getting 3G signal at home, only GPRS, that explains it. cheers
