    No ... Not an infraction, I was actually was banned for several days! I was to say the least, a little taken back. None of the three replies were related but apparently my replies were in too short of a time span to be allowed separately. Meanwhile folks could scream at each other and be ok!



    BTW ... I could be wrong but I think their system does it automatically now, just reply two a few quickly and they are all placed in the same reply for you, even if they are completely unrelated ... A stupid system IMHO... I agree with Soli, AI. rocks compared to MR.

    I really enjoyed Soli's link to the posts of 'the iPad will fail' the other day. This should be a regular feature on AI.



    I don't know about AI, but:

    And it looks like much of it was a fantasy dreamed up by Brian Chen:

    I agree. The process for handing out infractions and bans is completely out of control. I got an infraction for calling "I'm a Zither Zather Zuzz" "I'm a snore" (get it-"I'm a zzz"?) while people get away with relentless trolling and attacks.

    Great reads, thanks. There should be a web site dedicated to the best all time trolling comments about Apple for the last ten years. Full credits given of course.

    Yes, it was on AI.



    I've gotten other infractions for equally minor matters.

    Me too, but it's been awhile. Just don't go after the poster, attack the post, which includes not making fun of their name. Plus, making fun of someone's name does make an argument sound weak.

    I am at a loss to understand why the language select screen has an English (United Kingdom) option. No Apple, it's just English, as spoken and invented by the English. It's not a variant of English, it's not a custom SKU, it's just the default, the neutral position, the one correct version of English.



    If you want to feature alternate unofficial versions of English, then feel free, but there is no such thing as English (United Kingdom), it's just English.

    As opposed to Geordie, Liverpudlian, Scouse, Cockney ... And so on ....
