Toulon I just think that this leads to trying to keep up with the Joneses behavior and is a form of bragging
Totally disagree in regards to this place.
if anything, the bragging would be who ho'd the nicest ,cheapest bag.
At FGI, I didn't put anything in my signature because I got the "shilling" comments all the time.
It was tedious and lame, especially since I didn't do reviews at all.
The was also the "put your HDCP in your signature" comments that resulted in the inevitable "your review is bogus because you suck" comments and all the nonsense that went with that too.
Here, there are no more sponsors, no component companies, no OEMs and not enough new stuff being reviewed (aside from Typhoon and some biased Ping ones from that other guy) so no issues at all.
For most of us, curiosity is the main ingredient for seeing what people are playing, imo.
