Yeah, blogs are annoying. Anybody could go and create a blog and then post it as news on N4G... But with the bunch of idiots and fanboys that we have for contributors what can we do?

^ Why say that, this doesn't seem to have anything to do with the 360 or PS3 so why would this be offensive. I admit that I have not read it nor do i plan to even click the link but I think it's safe to say that most arguments an fanboyism here are related to the console market.

Someone talking crap about what M$ is or isn't doing with PC games means nothing to most of the people here and that's why this topic is "low temperature"

Anything written here will be COMPLETELY forgotten by tomorrow anyways :)
