Why is it that anyone who criticizes the XB1 a 'fanboy' and is 'bashing' it?

Same reason anyone who tries to defend the X1, even with logical arguments, is called a fanboy and flamed. It's because fanboys on both sides are fanatical and threatened by anyone who don't share their beliefs or views.

And while I'm sure that some people out there aren't trying to troll when they post their criticisms, the outspoken minority of idiots ruin it for everyone. That's the way the world has always worked.


Wasn't always liked this. Modds use to step in. Then cheat codes went away and the focus of the boards went to fighting over who had the coolest dad. The modds allow the fighting because it sells ad space. Remember coming on this site before the ads? Don't blame the kids, blame the people we pay to keep the site clean by looking at ads.

Seems as though the mods themselves can be very biased one way or the other at times.

They're not. You should pay closer attention if you're going to make a topic about it.

Go look again, and look at the loudest, most obnoxious douchebags who spend hours a day, every day trolling the Xbox One. The guys who make literally dozens of accounts weekly that keep getting banned for trolling.

Those are the sony fanboys that are "bashing" it.

How do you know they are sony fanboys if you never met the person? Unless, of course, while demeaning the xb1 they, at the same time, promote the play station brand that is.

And even so who really knows that person is truly a sony fan? Perhaps its just a miscellaneous troll playing against the perceived animosity of Sony and MS supporters.

My point being, people are too quick to presume things.

Criticism itself is not the root of the problem. It's the people who spout debunked or outdated information and/or post in such a way to deliberately incite an insulting response or a flame war that are the problem.

If people posted their opinions without insulting anybody and we could actually have decent discussion, that would be fine. But the anonymity of the Internet raises a person's ******* factor by 600%, which leads to the current state of the board.

Again, I would suggest that if you're going to make topics about it, you should know what you're talking about. I don't mean for that to sound harsh, I'm simply saying that you obviously don't know some of these pathetic people like others of us unfortunately do.

Because some are too infatuated with their device to accept that there might be logical issues with it. So any criticisms are seen as irrational hatred.
