It looked like it was getting a little overheated. I locked it given that last reply looked to be a nice "closing comment."
If you need to blow off steam, feel free to try our Speakeasy forum.
I made the first and only post in the camcorders section which is called "BEFORE YOU BUY A HARD DRIVE-BASED CAMCORDER, URGENT!!!" The forum was practically empty at that time, making wonder why, since CNET has been around for some time.
Now I understand why. It seems that one of the responders to my post turned out to be a moderator, who simply locked the conversation. If this is the regular practice of CNET then I must kindly ask you to delete my account here because in the user's control panel there's no possibility to do it for the user.
CNET! Good luck competing with video online advertising!
