why do you hate phoronix.com so much? please cite examples.August 13, 2013 at 9:03 pm #68938
Hate is such a weak word. Have a read http://linuxgamecast.com/discussions-2/ … -behold/p1August 13, 2013 at 9:33 pm #68939turnoverMember
I didn’t realize they said anything about gaming. I thought their stuff was more technical . I regret nothing.August 13, 2013 at 9:49 pm #68940
Turnover = troll level nope Let’s start a thread about Phoronix on a volatile forum, where lots of passionate posters have heated debates about things ACTUALLY worthwhile to discuss.
Hint: the bait was too out in the open… Shoulda been like Hey, lay off Phoronix, the guy has alot of good, quality articles. Occasionally he messes up, but hey he’s human. He’s made the Linux community better with his insight some trite bullshit like that.
Now, go forth and be fruitful.August 14, 2013 at 12:39 am #68942
I just don’t find his journalism professional. He has done some great things for the community. The benchmarking application comes in handy occasionally. I think he just bites the bullet with a lot of articles before checking the sources. Also I think the game articles are a deliberate ploy for him to get more hits.August 14, 2013 at 7:42 am #68945
That pretty much sums it up. Not scathing enough, but well saidAugust 14, 2013 at 10:37 pm #68963Sore_Loser wrote:That pretty much sums it up. Not scathing enough, but well said
I’ll scathe you schnookumsAugust 15, 2013 at 3:12 pm #68979
Anyone catch this little meltdown? Seems it was over the following post on /r/linux_gaming
http://www.reddit.com/r/linux_gaming/co … ort_linux/
I was going to let it slide but if and when you flip the hell out man up and leave the comments.August 15, 2013 at 3:35 pm #68980
Speaking of ‘manning up’….
I’m not even exactly sure what this dude is folded over, but someone made a tourniquet with his Captain Planet underoos.
So I decided to spout about it cuz… well, you know,
Why stop now.August 15, 2013 at 6:56 pm #68998
It seems that the comments on the Reddit was just giving him advice not to post articles like Larabel’s. I think Liam over-reacted on this one. At least he didn’t do a Phil Fish and says to his readers “commit suicide”.August 15, 2013 at 7:27 pm #69000z1lt0id wrote:It seems that the comments on the Reddit was just giving him advice not to post articles like Larabel’s.

Just noticed the [deleted] bit on linux_gaming.
I would not worry about him nopeing out. It has all happened before and will all happen again, seriously. There was a “I’m quitting” rant on Twitter about two years back.
I like Liam but FFS he needs to learn how to take constructive criticism.August 17, 2013 at 4:33 pm #69038August 17, 2013 at 5:47 pm #69041
GoL will now have more hotlinking to its own articlesAugust 17, 2013 at 6:19 pm #69042Pedro MateusKeymaster
