    But he's so bloody arrogant even when he's proven that he's wrong - that's what pisses me off. I mean if you want to be a jackass then you also have to admit when you're wrong as well.

    His bullshit was worth dealing with to have him around. He knew his shit, and was very helpfull if he could be. Just that he tried to make you feel dumb while in the process of telling you whatever.

    but in his eyes he is NEVER wrong. your wrong. He's the biggest sack rider for hardware i have ever met. Because something didnt work for him, it will never work for anyone, anytime, anywhere. Complete bullshit.

    Seriously, like i said before, know wonder he is self employeed, no company who values their other employees would hire his egotistica, self centered ass.

    He does know his stuff, but when he takes arguments to a personal level and resorts to name calling then it is going too far.

    Hopefuly his time off will teach him that. :dunno:

    He knows when he's wrong... and when he realizes he is wrong he'll stop posting in that thread. :mamoru: Unless what you consider "wrong" is one of his opinions.

    He's an extremist, like many other people here, when he's tested something as thoroughly as he say he's tested them and they fail on him, he won't go back to it and tell others what a big peice of shit it is. who cares. That's his opinion. In my eyes, the person who takes his opinion without doing research themselves is the ignorant one. I do something similair, when I use hardware and has failed on me because of a certain reason, I won't go back to it again depending on the reason. We all do that. He's just more extreme about it.

    That's probably not the reason why he's self-employed. He's probably self-employed because he refuses, or in his case probably "can't" work under someone. But realize this, he's probably a completely different person in real life. Online, he's an asshole, like many of us here you know, and probably yourself as well act different online.

    I'm not talking about opinions of hardware, shit everyone has them. I'm talking about when he says something concrete and you PROVE him wrong. And it's not just about computers, he does it with other OT subjects too.

    Maybe he is self-employed because he makes alot of money that way? Either way, I don't think he is coming back after the ban is lifted anywho. Least he said he wasn't going to :dunno:

    Don't think he is either. It's a shame. C&P is going to be slow now.

    i don't know. i remember some thread about linux, and granted i don't know a lot about it, and i mentioned redhad 10, and he snaps back that redhat 10 never existed. i linked him to a torrent of it, and he just stoped posting in that thread. if he is obvioulsy wrong he just runs away.

    but despite that, i did respect the fact he usually knew what he was talking about, albiet he tried to make you feel like an idiot, and perhaps scared some noobs away from C&P

    Don't miss him one bit here...

    I guess I'd agree that he know some of his stuff, but really has to work on portraying that. He has no right to call someone a dumbass just for asking a question and god forbid someone gives a wrong answer, he is all over them calling them names for not being perfect like him... And he does this in more than one forum too...

    Im sure he'll be back and he'll do the same thing... I guarantee it...

    I think you guys get butthurt too easily. :mamoru:

    Really, if you get into an argument with him and he calls you stupid, who cares? Go onto the next thread, it's a done deal, but you guys just keep dragging it on. He doesn't hold grudges, a new thread is a new argument and he won't hold the prior thread against you. Him and I have gotton into plenty of arguments. But what differs between me and you guys is that I realize this is the internet and I don't let people piss me off on the internet.

    :mamoru:

    his arrogance really bothers me. He probably really only knows about 75% of the shit that comes out of his mouth. The other 25% is just stupidity.

    Like everyone else I have to agree that he was arrogant -- to the point that he became the sole person on my ignore list. I mean people come in here looking for help with a system build then he says:

    brand: crap
    brand2: lolz
    brand3: cheap
    brand4: not as good as brandx

    "You obviously don't know shit about building a computer so don't even bother."

    9 times out of 10 his first reply to a thread is ALL a bash, he offers no help unless there is nothing to bash -- he will only help after said bash if someone asks him specifically.

    I don't like him...I'm glad he's gone.
