    Conflict of Interest for Curse/Network and honest discourse?

    Is there a conflict of interest because of close financial interests in the games they cover and they way their forums are moderated? Dissent is treated more harshly here than on the official forums.

    Because you decided to make a stupid thread about WoW losing subscribers without any proof to go with it? Enjoy this thread being closed as well.

    A thread saying WoW is gaining subscriptions without "proof" would not have been closed which proves the point Im making...no?

    It would if comments result in pointless bashing.

    Dissent is often expressed in ways that invite infractions. It's really that simple. If you imagine there's some unstated rule that says "Infract those that dissent" you would be quite mistaken.

    Dissent (from what exactly since you never stated) is fine as long as it's constructive. I can pretty much assure you that as long as your position is reasonable, backed up by some facts or at least well-formed opinions, isn't trolling anyone, or isn't personally attacking somebody it will be left alone.

    In fact, I probably would close a thread that simply says that WoW is gaining subscriptions that had no evidence whatsoever to back that up. The simple fact is that threads like that are flamebait.

    And since you are lacking anything in the way of facts to support your original supposition and this thread is likely to go nowhere other than defenses and accusations about MMO-C, I'm closing this thread as well.
    A bit of civility and respect for others opinions goes a long way toward getting any respect in return. Overly hostile, profane and insulting posts are a sign that people don't really have anything to say. Profanity is best served out in very small doses.
