    It's "prospective", not "perspective".

    A drip is not a flood

    One person has a frustrating computer experience and suddenly "Intel sucks" is whirling around the internet. It would be easy to glance at this headline and assume that thousands of irate customers are complaining.

    And it's one person's opinion! Almost anything can happen to one person, only now—thanks to the power of the internet—that one person can become a virtual one-man class action.

    This is major reality distortion, folks! IMHO, MacNN is not serving the public interest by publishing misleading headlines that encourage readers to form opinions not supported by the actual facts.

    re: A drip is not a flood

    I don't think MacNN made anyone believe anything with that headline. Typically the headlines of the forums post are based off the opinion of one person included in the news item. Either way, it got us to read anyways -- that is sort of their job.

    It's not like they said "One extremely intelligent forum poster has shared his ground breaking revelation that Intel sucks." h***, they even used the quotations to make it even more sarcastic.

    I would be complaining another article if that was the headline, but not this one.

    not news

    WHat people are discussing in the forums is not news. MacNN -- please keep your forum stuff in the forum section and leave it out of the headlines. It ain't a headline.

    Re: not news

    Technically, if forum postings aren't news, then MacNN should stay away from issues that are being discussed on any forums, like the apple forums and the latest mac computer to have serious physical problems? And if we're saying forums aren't news, then I would assume that covers any opinion piece, so make sure those blog posts don't show up here either. Keep out all other discussions that might be based on someone's frame of mind, as well.

    Basically, MacNN should just become a place to post press releases from companies? Oh, but they better read them, first, because we can't have them report stuff that isn't current as of today, either. Don't want another one of those "Disney announces Cars will be on iTMS" situiations again, that's for sure.
