Could you possibly lighten up on the Kindle bashing please?

We have understood that you do not like it. Let it lie already.

Who is bashing? I just want to know why so many people hate their Kindle.Look at all those negative reviews . . . . . .

Well, Kindle didn't pass the test in a 15.24%. A lot? I don't know. Can you show statistics regarding to another reader? So we can really compare. In other case, I see no point at it.

You are, in just about every post related to the Kindle you have posted in you have had something negative to say about it.

I don't own a Kindle, I have no desire to own a kindle, but I let people decide for themselves which e-reader they prefer. If they like the Kindle, by all means, get one.

I don't know how you guys see it, but I am beginning to think that maybe Ocean and gigercounter could be the same person, just driving us crazy right now? They have very different views, but very similar MO.

Just my 2cts.....

Ocean was banned last night, and immediately re-logged on as "Seas" He was also banned with that name.

This one is just another fanboy. Look at his avatar, his constant bashing, and whiny self-defense attitude.

Well, as yet "bashing" is indeed a little bit too strong, but... Please review your last posts regarding the kindle. Then compare it to what Ocean did. (And you wrote clearly that you don't like what Ocean did in the nook-subforum).

To all: Fair play please, MR folks. Sometime or other everyone of us needs a second chance.

It looked to me like most complains were about the DRM, or the fragile screen, which are both problems on most other readers.

Seriously now :

http://www.amazon.com/tag/kindle/for...ype=tagsDetail

And noone here thinks it is weird that exactly the same thread appears here ? The amazon forum thread was started by an (alas) well known troll there.

I won't comment anymore, but I don't believe at all in those kind of coincidences.
