Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by minimus, Sep 5, 2008.

  1. Microsoft defines their newsgroups:

    "Newsgroups are online threaded discussion groups in which people converse
    asynchronously to exchange ideas and information. There are over 2,000
    newsgroups dedicated to discussing Microsoft products."

    It doesn't say anything about non-microsoft products.

    : Hi Rob,
    : I found your inferral that this place is for questions only to be a bit
    : wrong.
    : Definition of Forum from Merriam Webster:
    : 1 a: the marketplace or public place of an ancient Roman city forming the
    : center of judicial and public business b: a public meeting place for open
    : discussion c: a medium (as a newspaper or online service) of open
    : or expression of ideas
    : 2: a judicial body or assembly : court
    : 3 a: a public meeting or lecture involving audience discussion b: a
    : (as on radio or television) involving discussion of a problem usually by
    : several authorities
    : Seems 1c would apply. I think minimus' invitation to a discussion is
    : perfectly applicable. Just because these forums are used mostly for
    : troubleshooting purposes doesn't mean that's all that they're for.

  2. This is a newsgroup, not a forum.

    Furthermore, this is not the newsgroup for IE8 Beta.

    IE Beta Public Newsgroup Support: microsoft.public.internetexplorer.beta

    Via the web-interface:

    Via your newsreader:

    [Yes, I understand that the link you may have used probably brought you to
    IE General newsgroup. We're trying to get that fixed.]

    As evidenced by your post, you haven't a clue regarding your claim. It
    is evident that you didn't bother reading ALL the posts in this

    Were you perhaps decrying that your own submission was nothing? Much
    like the declaration "Everyone here is an idiot" which would also then
    include the person making that declaration.

    Hi Dan,

    Off topic.

    Thanks for your reply to my post to Bear. Yes I saw and read your
    edification about the deficiencies of the Google Chrome browser.
