WARNING - HOW TO STOP OPERA FROM BEING CHROME!! JOIN US!!

  • ...

    you are quite correct in your warning. however, damage needs to be proven and calculated. he has not impacted the company, nor is it probable that he even could. furthermore, his statement was more conjecture and not malicious: concern drives it. it doesn't seem libel to me

    You make good points. However, @taurusx5 did refer to events in the 'past' tense, which is usually legally considered to be a claim of fact when not accompanied by an opinion disclaimer. eg:

    Management has been approached by a few buyers...

    the devs or management (theyre both one and the same sell-outs) decided to make Opera more "user friendly" ... to make it attractive enough for these potential buyers to buy.

    ...the devs sold out... They cant wait to sell Opera to ... get a big piece of the money pie promised to them by management.

    I've seen slander suits won on less, but as I noted, Opera probably isn't going to bother with the likes of him, though it does have the resources to do it, and a lawsuit discovery process could force the legal mechanisms to track him down. Nevertheless, carelessly careening around in forums making wild accusations as if they were fact is a very unwise thing to do, and sooner or later will get the person into legal troubles.

  • ... Homosexuality: (from Ancient Greek ὁμός, meaning "same", and Latin sexus, meaning "sex") is romantic attraction, sexual attraction or sexual behavior between members of the same sex or gender. As an orientation, homosexuality refers to "an enduring pattern of or disposition to experience sexual, affectionate, or romantic attractions" primarily or exclusively to people of the same sex. "It also refers to an individual's sense of personal and social identity based on those attractions, behaviors expressing them, and membership in a community of others who share them."
    Youre behaving like the above definition.
    Just be aware that I dont give a damn what you say and I'm not scared of you or ANYONE. I've already explained my view point. Obviously, you're part of Opera managament. Your job is to keep true Opera fans like me from tarnishing your b.s. inOperate to make it attractive to potential business partners without having them feel persuaded from buying it due to growing public opinion about it. Great PR work.
    Do you have any absolute prrof that buyers like Facebook have not been eyeing inOperate to buyt it?
    So yes, youre obviously an Opera employee tasked with the responsibility to search and destroy those who oppose your Chromed browser. Youre a very negative person who does nothing but threaten people who dont like your beowser with legal ramifications. In other words, youre a coward.

    Your reading comprehension appears to be inversely related to your anger level. I've never once threatened you. I've simply pointed out a legal possibility to you. If that makes me "obviously an Opera employee", it explains a lot about how you draw your weird conclusions based on prejudicial thinking rather than facts.

    You've yet to provide one factual fragment of evidence that any of your assertions about Opera and its developers "selling out" the browser design in order to sell the company for high personal gain are true. All you have provided, as though it were fact, is the result of pure conjecture based on your own bias. That is slander, whether you accept it or not.

    You've yet to provide one factual fragment of evidence regarding the sexual orientation of any poster here on Opera's forums. All you have provided, as though it were fact, is the result of your anger and bias. That is slander, whether you accept it or not.

    In thread after thread in these forums, you charge in spewing your fabrication and vitriol toward Opera and anyone who disagrees with you. When confronted by others about your behavior, you resort to name-calling and even more desperate fabrication. Life must be desperately bitter and hate-filled for you, and especially painful for those around you.

    And for heaven's sake, use a spell-checker and learn to punctuate... especially when you're too angry to see your keyboard while you're typing out your vitriol.

  • It's been suggested 1000 times in less than a year? That seems like a lot. At what point do individual voices start to blend and become a critical mass of meaningful resistance?
    When the voices belong to stockholders comprising a majority of the voting shares. Otherwise, it's wise to recall that

    You've been reported for slander.

    OMG! Let me call a lawyer!

    You should be reported for being less than a man.

  • You've been reported for slander.

    ... You should be reported for being less than a man.

    Wow... yet another sexual orientation slam. You really do seem fixated on that subject, don't you? One could even ask about what you might be really trying to tell us: is your pseudonym of Taurus (the bull) actually something subliminal about your own orientation leaking through, perhaps? Of course, that's not an assertion of fact, just a question... I certainly wouldn't want to slander you. But have you thought about seeking professional counseling?

  • JOIN THE RESISTANCE AGAINST THE SELL-OUTS !!!!!!

    They say that guys with homo tendencies express themselves in a defensive and cowardly manner. And the way Blackbird expresses himself, he seems angry that something as trivial as this get to him easily where hes got to act out emotionally like a female. Blackbird is just a loser who isnt secure within his own sexuality to make him realize that hes embarrasing himself. These are the makings of a pedophile.

    Your lack of grammar skills seems to be directly correlated to and validate your apparent sexual orientation. No one here knows what youre talking about. If you want to continue to act innocently like youre not an inOperate employee by the way to defend it to death, then go right on your dandy way. We all see clearly through that menure. It tells us how loserly you manifest your life to be. Youve yet to provide one small fragment of evidence that any of your assertions about you and the inOperate devs havent redesigned and sold out the browser in order to sell the company for personal gain. All youve provided, as though it were fact, is an idiotic brew of legal ad hominem jargon as if you were perry mason based on your lack of manliness. That is homosexuality, whether you accept it or not.
    You've yet to provide one factual fragment of evidence regarding your own sexual orientation of those of your fellow inOperate dev and team here on the Opera's forums. All you have provided, as though it were fact, is the result of your sick sexual orientation. Again, thats homosexuality, so accept it.
    In all your threads on this forum, you exude relentlessly your fantasy world of playing a tough guy role against anyone who disagress or dislikes inOperate. When others express themselves against this Chrode browser, you immediately jump at the chance to harass and threaten him with this false legality against his 1st amendment right. Life in your world must be full of rejection by the opposite sex, where you deem everyone to be an enemy and that they must suffer, if God forrbide, they dont like the very same things you do.
    And seriously, use proper grammar next time, especially in regards to your run-on sentences and your ill-placed tenses. It seems that youre too homosexualized to see the tons of errors of your poor grammar that continue to wreak eye sores in those unfortunate enough to read your 2nd-grade reading level posts.

  • [Mod edit: per the rules "Very serious or repeated offenses can lead to a permanent ban from the site." You're welcome.]

  • @taurusx5, in all seriousness, please do seek professional counseling. Your continuing accusations against people who disagree with you of being homosexual is not a laughing matter, and it's certainly not normal human behavior. Your entire line of posting has gotten way out of hand, so I'm out of here.

  • and it's certainly not normal human behavior.

    Nah!, he's just full of shit, and a good shafting up the backside should help clear that out.

  • The name-calling, vulgar language and obscene comparisons hopefully earned him a permanent ban. There's no need for that sort of childish behavior.

  • So this thread is now the playground for the all the kids that didn't make it into special ed?
    Cool. That way it has at least some sort of function.

    Seriously, moderators, would you please do your job?

  • I flagged this thread to be closed, to ban him and nothing happens, Moderators, please, do something.

  • @blackbird71
    You're an intelligent, well-informed guy, but you seem to have a blind spot when it comes to the casting of pearls before swine. taurusx5 is (and was, on the earlier incarnation of this forum) the poster child for the saying "you can't fix stupid"!

  • Well I am gay, and find some of the comments in this thread thoroughly offensive on many levels.
    The comments are now nothing to do with the topic and the thread should be closed (and preferably removed) for that reason alone.
    On the old forum this thread would have been removed instantly for being flamebait.
    😞

  • I couldn't agree more. I mentioned this gay-bashing (in my opinion) comments by that poster in my flagging the post but suspect that the author of the post was banned. The entire thread needs to be removed.

  • ... taurusx5 is (and was, on the earlier incarnation of this forum) the poster child for the saying "you can't fix stupid"!

    Hmmm. I wouldn't describe it as stupidity myself, and it actually seems to go well beyond mere name-calling. IMO, it has more to do with revealing a particular person's explosive, out-of-control temperament at being confronted or even being disagreed with. It's also the stuff prejudicial, sudden violence is made of... something we've all witnessed far too many times in recent years. It needs to be dealt with - soon - by the person himself, before it leads them into a situation where society has to deal with its consequences in some other, far more unpleasant way.

    I also agree that this entire thread should be removed.

  • what taurus did was totally unecessary, this thread must be removed.

  • I couldn't agree more. I mentioned this gay-bashing (in my opinion) comments by that poster in my flagging the post but suspect that the author of the post was banned. The entire thread needs to be removed.

    YAWN!

  • Hmmm. I wouldn't describe it as stupidity myself, and it actually seems to go well beyond mere name-calling. IMO, it has more to do with revealing a particular person's explosive, out-of-control temperament

    Yes, of course, it goes beyond stupidity. I was using poetic license in saying "you can't fix stupid" to make the point that it is utterly futile to try, as you've done on more than one occasion, to reason with someone with such a twisted, irrational, retrograde mentality. What in the world would make you think that someone who has posted the things he's posted for months now might actually take your advice and seek counselling? Anyway, best wishes to you. I'm done here.

  • I'm closing this thread, as it's no longer about the subject, but more about personal attacks.
