Thanks for the links
Posted by Some Guy at 12:21pm on Wed Mar 22nd 2006I originally posted this site to reddit.com and waited to see if it would take on a life of its own. An hour or two later, "dirty frat boy" posted it on digg, where it got quite a bit of attention and sent over 10,000 unique people to this site before being buried a few hours later. There were many people upset by the domain name. Understandable, but it's supposed to make a strong statement. Keep in mind that there are alternatives such as bluraysucks.com. There were also some people upset with some of my arguments. Most of this was caused by bad wording on my part. For example, hdbeat.com posted this rebuttal, but my response (comment #6) shows that most of it was just a misunderstanding or poor wording by me. I have since revised the boycott page to clarify a lot of points. The most common complaint was that I said HDMI cables were "not cheap" - heh, if such a minor point is the biggest complaint, I think that the article in question was pretty spot on.
