It is a Request for HELP and it's Not a DEBATE.
Here's the Request for HELP part, not only for me but for OTHERS... In the following quotation, I'm pointing out that the information compiled would be HELPFUL to EVERYBODY so that when considering different Applications they can have ONE place to go to, ONE source of Information (aka: Data) to HELP them make decisions about what to use. And that's because, when these Applications are reviewed, Here and Everywhere else... the appropriate DATA (aka: Important Information is not supplied).
"I think it would be convenient, handy, informative, and helpful for several and whatever reasons, to have such a list of data. It could be compiled right here for everyone to see and share... people from all over the internet would appreciate it."
As you can see, I'm not only asking for HELP for myself but for Everybody who visits this forum and has similar questions and/or curiosities. In fact, here are some more questions... Why do I have to ask these questions? Why isn't this important DATA/Information collected and revealed to us right here at CNET when products are Reviewed? I believe it would be a brilliant idea, if every piece of software that gets Reviewed here at CNET, ought to have the information that I'm requesting, Included within the Review. Would that be a Bad Idea or a Good Idea? Would that be difficult to evaluate?
I hope that when the software gets reviewed it's actually used, and if so, the testing individual, could easily answer the questions I have posted above. I for one would love to visit this site, pull up a document, a chart, that shows a list of applications, and how much in resources that application is going to use. I paid for the memory in my computer. There's just so much. I want to use it wisely. I NEED HELP in the form of DATA to make decisions... furthermore I wouldn't have to spend a lot of time doing THIS, and then just BEGGING for the Information/DATA so I can make decisions.
1. a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly, involving opposing viewpoints: a debate in the Senate on farm price supports.
2. a formal contest in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers.
3. deliberation; consideration.
There's NO Debate... or Arguments... or Opposing Viewpoints... there's Simply a Request For Data (aka: Important Information) to HELP me make a decision about what software to use on my tiny little netbook computers... that's all... no arguments... just a plea, a request... that's all... simple... only 3 simple questions...
"I have discovered many posts elsewhere where people were inquiring or complaining about how much memory such and such a program was using. One site in it's reviews said "this program is light on resources", and "this program is heavy on resources"... But they didn't define "Resources"... and they didn't define "Light" or "Heavy"... just what and how much are they talking about... and who are they to decide for me what's Light and what's Heavy (?). Just give me the numbers and I'll decide for myself. "
This is the Spyware, viruses, & security forum if I'm not mistaken. My questions are DIRECTLY TARGETED at Spyware, Virus & Secrity Applicaitions. If you were a traffic cop for this entire city of forums, where would you direct me to go when I tell you I need HELP with my Spyware, Virus & Security Applications?
SPEAKEASY FORUM - I'm not here to chat about random, general, miscellaneous off topics.
COMMUNIITY POLLS - I'm not here to get opinions about what application someone believes is The Best. I'm here to collect information so I can make my own decision.
PC UTILITIES - That's a huge broad area which includes but is not limited to Spyware, Virus & Security Applications. But... The Fact Is, in that there IS a SPECIFIC Forum for Spyware Virus, & Security Applications, I chose to post in that Specific, Targeted, forum... because That's What My Questions Are Specifically ALL About.
If I had posted in any of those OTHER forums, I'm sure and certain that I would have been directed back here. Your suggestions are wrong and ill advised.
I asked for assistance (aka: HELP)... I received NONE
I asked questions... i got Questions in return.. and/or NO ANSWERS.
I came here to this Spyware, Virus, And Security Specialty Forum where I thought I would get Awesome Information and Assistance (aka: HELP)... about Spyware, Virus, And Security Applications... so I could make a decision about what to use... and provide a PLACE WHERE OTHERS could retrieve and utilize the same information... I GOT NOTHING! ... and was told my questions about Spyware, Virus, And Security Applications didn't belong here and was told to Go Away! It was my belief that HERE I WOULD FIND THE EXPERTS.... HERE I WOULD GET HELP... Not On My Life!
I Leave Here Disgruntled, Disappointed, Frustrated, Confused... and still lacking the information I came here to gather.
PLEASE FORGET ABOUT ME... just Please FIND A WAY TO COLLECT THE DATA... IT WOULD BE HELPFUL... but I'll advise you to NOT go to the SPEAKEASY FORUM, COMMUNITY POLLS, or PC UTILITIES forums... for I believe the DATA is sittingHERE, right in your own back yard, sitting under your nose... waiting to be collected.
So just Forget About Me... Forget About All This... and FOCUS ON THE DATA... Focus on Collecting It... then Focus on Compiling it, intelligently... then Focus on Making it Available... for ALL to Utilize for whatever reasons they need the information for.
Your lack of assistance, attentiveness, service, and surely... kindness... has been duly, and sadly noted.
good bye... never fear... i won't ever mouse one click in this, the most unwelcoming, unproductived forum I have ever experienced....
No hard feelings... i believe that's just the yin and yang of things...
Happy St. Patricks Day! May the Luck of The Irish be With You this Weekend.
Ps. I'll just download a dozen or so applications and test them myself... collect, compile, publish... post it someplace to help others with similar questions.
