    And I would like to know why so many Droid owners get so derisive and threatened by the iPhone. For those that are typically supposed to be technologically adept, I see a lot of narrow minded, sophomoric posts about Apple that are, quite honestly, not even necessary.

    It's amazing on my Incredible Forum, and yes, we have many of the same members here, an iPhone thread not only goes more than 20 pages, it does it with absolutely NO flames and people on both sides learning something.

    Before slamming others, some need to grow up.

    I don't hate the iPhone. In fact I know it has its place for many users, and was very happy for a friend of mine that finally got hers yesterday. But you're right about the flaming thing. That's why I'm sick of hearing about it here. Every iPhone thread gets filled with essays of comments from the same ten users or so. This is an android forum and I'm sick of seeing so much darn iPhone news and fights and such.

    Couldn't agree more & in regards to the thread I linked to; stupid threads deserve stupid posts. Mine are the dumbest.

    I don't recommend taking that line of thinking to heart. I don't like those types of responses, nor do many of the other mods, and they won't be tolerated. Don't like the threads, don't post in them. Post stupidity in threads, especially stupidity that will incite other members, and you will go away.

    Consider this a warning.

    Interesting thread...psychological profiles of members are crystal clear. A good lot don't have a malicious bone in their body, whereas a couple of folks are down right "know-it-all/but really know nothing/ignorant/mean-spirited."

    Hmm? Someone is interested in your opinion? We should all be so lucky.
    As a hobby, my father spoke 22 languages fluently. He never once belittled anyone for seeking knowledge. So, this concept is foreign territory.

    That is all.

    Just to be clear, and I'm not trying to start anything, just wondering, you're saying you disagree with the topic/tone of the thread?

    I think he was trying to say that he's above something:

    Right after he proved he wasn't:
