Keysplayr is a good guy and I agree he should be a Mod, even after all the bs at AT.
I never knew Rollo was let back in in the past. What was with that? When was he last banned from there again?
I get ousted for a simple call out of a mod x2 and I'm still banned 1.5 years later!......... Oh, that was in the Politics forum..... Ahhhhh, that's why. Something to do with Perknose sucking Obama's cock
Well, it would be up to Keys, and i suggested way back when - when they offered him Focus Group which was amazingly bad timing with his becoming mod and with Rollo being ejected from the Forum - that he simply refrain from modding video - that he mod every place other than video so that there wasn't a *hint* of any perception issues. And for a long time he refrained from modding there; he asked the AT forum admin to leave him as a CPU mod but remove the video mod title. i think becoming "Super" moderator erased all distinctions and he now mods video.
Yes, Rollo was banned twice. The first time, i was instrumental in outing him as a viral AEG agent. After a long time, NVIDIA asked Anand if it would be OK if he returned. AnandTech was offering "amnesty" back then in certain cases and i even lobbied to have him return (which he still will never believe). He got perma-banned again for returning to his old routines. By then, the membership was pretty hostile to him anyway.
If i remember correctly, you *dared* them to perma-ban you in PFI forum.
- or am i thinking of someone else?
I just don't know how Evadman and Perknose can say that Keys is not a viral marketer. I can see why people are suggesting that AT is taking bribes from NV.
repeat after me ...There is nothing wrong with "viral marketing"
YouTube IS viral marketing, for example. Also, NVIDIA and its partners pay for advertising on AT. However, like all things there is a dark side when it is used to *manipulate* public opinion.
