    Why does the Droid Forums post a "Join Now" banner showing two Nexus One's surrounding a Droid? Isn't this a Droid forum? It like you're saying "Droid is great, but check out these Nexus Ones!"

    Also, you're sporting banner ads of a superior phone (the Nexus One) and Droid's competition, HTC HD2. Why would I buy a Droid, go to the forums and want to see or be expected to check out or purchase my new phone's competition?! This is a Droid forum, not an Android forum! Why not post advertisements for Droid stuff?!

    Are you sure those aren't Droid Eris's? It's been so long since I've seen that picture, so I don't remember lol.

    because the bottom line is that the blood inside our motorola droid's pumps android through and through....the android os in the nexus, desire, devour, etc.... are all relatives and are welcome in the forum.

    My bad, those are Eris'. I understand that the site owner wants to make money from ads, but this is a Droid forum, not an Android forum. I know people will talk about Android here, but the Android on my Droid is not necessarily the same as the Android on Nexus One, HTC, whatever. I want to talk about the DROID series, not other phones.

    So talk about the Droid. I believe it has been posted above we can not bash each other but come on now. Does it really matter at the end of the day? After all it is just a PHONE.

    Ok this is a Droid forum but it also has sections for other phones. It is basically a Android community with an emphasis on the Droid. We also have a lot of Milestone owners on this board. The owner of this forum owns many different forums including Nexus One forums and others. What ads he displays on his forums is his choice. If they bother you that much then just don't look at them. A lot of us are interested in learning about tons of different phones not just the Droid.

    OMG! Wait until the OP discovers that the owners of the site apparently have an affiliated iPad forum site that is (gasp!) advertised on the Home page!

    Geesh, seems like such a minor request to keep a Droid forum about Droid

    The majority of the forums is about the droid but there are other sections. All android phones are welcome on these forums but there is mostly info for the Droid and Milestone.
