Well Charles, it is obvious that there isn't the same "gravity of issue" between a runaway auto, and an overheated or broken video card. But for all the howling, and moaning going on you might get the idea that there is. If you will, consider this, the pool of people affected by the auto recall is certainly much larger, but I would be willing to bet that the percentages of reactions to the video card issue would be parallel with respect to percentage of similar responses. This is straight up because many of the guests are trolls, and their statements and opinions are the posting equivalent of a drive by download. Then you posted this response To a post by DBZ as follows "My guess would be that the black market for 196.75 will spring up so that "poor affected users" can trash their cards to get upgraded RMA replacements. Expect a rash of irate posters screaming that their dearly beloved 7600GS was K.I.A. and their vendor wont upgrade them to a GTX470." This remark was made in response to my Toyota analog. It is intended to be way over the top sarcasm or satire, so it seems that you missed the back story. I suppose that you could take it seriously, but that's really a stretch, and a complete misinterpretation of the material. It was intended to be outrageous, but not to evoke outrage. That response is between you and you alone. Well, it wouldn't be any fun if we sat around and agreed with each other all the time, now would it? And that's as much as I can type for the time being, my ADHD is acting up.
