In reply to: Oh.

.. as I didn't get one bit of it, even after reading the responses ..

Is it because someone was ranting about this "abysmal" guy kept rating all these products low, when it was just the name associated with the low rating was "abysmal?"

Oh, hey, I think I just answered my own question .. Ha ha.

Kinda like the old joke, "Who's this FICA person, and why is he taking so much of my paycheck?"

Or am I just missing it completely?

Somebody thought that a guy named "Abysmal" was always rating products with a "1" which is, well, an abysmal rating. It just says "Abysmal" above the 1 and the guy thought it was some user's name.

Abysmal is not the only one out there

Abysmal havd been in the products discussion for a long time, about 99% of the time he downgrades products. He reviewed most of the alienware products as bad! i do not believe that he spend twenty grand on those products! (thats about how much they cost altogether.) Another reviewer i found is poor. As his name suggests he also downgrades every popular product, Exellent,is also a reviewer i found to be quite untrue, he...well as his name suggests give a thumbs up for products...(i think he just look at the pictures)Even though these members have been on cnet for a long time i would like CNET to investigate on this matter.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
