That site's no more than a mirror of Appleinsider these days (yet for some reason, their stories always seem to generate three times as many comments as the ones here.
Yeah, it's annoying. That I agree. But when you really look at the comments they have one MacRUmors, it's like 1 word/1 line stupidity "Oh i hope its true." "Oh this is is not true," "damn i just bought a Mac 4 years ago," etc. Those stupid comments can add up real fast.
They just have a ton more members than the AppleInsider forums. But most of those members are just trendy idiots, with absolutely no insight to offer. They just like seeing their name in the forums.
I have always found AppleInsider forum members to be much more helpful and insightful. That's why we come here, no? (I say this all excluding this thread which has several references to diariah and farting, but I think that's just a few investors making fun of the analysts and pissed off today about all that is happening with the stock).
Anyway, the best thing to do is start recruiting some of the better, more insightful posters from around the Mac community sites to join us here on the AI forums. Leave the one-liners to rack up comment counts over at MacRumors. who cares? MacRumors is just a big blog. It adds no value. Everyone with a brain knows that, so I wouldn't get your panties in a knot over this.
