A few site-related announcements... –
We would just like to reinterate that this site is a community for PS2 users. As such, we welcome EVERYONE, regardless of affiliation, so long as you do not post defamatory comments. We do not treat our users like they are children, so do not worry if your spelling ability is not 100%, as VBulletin has a handy spellcheck feature which can be implimented. Enjoy the site and have fun, folks!
what's this about? Ofcourse newz accepts everyone, if it didn't it certainly would not be the site it is today! Over 40,000 members and steadily growing, with people new to the scene looking for questions to theire noobish questions, or for people who have came over out of frustration from the dark side, are sick of their flippies and would like a REAL mod!!

When you take a look at 'the other site' you'll know what he means :-)
I like this point:
blah blah blah... The staff here is composed of ADULTS, and we will NOT spend our time deciphering l33t ch4t on our site boards.
Hmmm... When I put ownz into dictionary.com it comes back with No entry found for ownz. L@m3rz
In all seriousness, what a load of crap that is... This is why so many people leave that place and come looking for alternatives... I mean to say things like:
Do NOT e-mail us asking why you have been banned from our sites or IRC... we NEVER remove these bans under any circumstances nor reply to these e-mails so you are only wasting your own time. However, if you are a vendor and would like to sponsor us then by all means feel free to contact us for ad rates and availability.
That's just plain ridiculous... How many peeps have been banned from here only to return upon further discussions... Every respectable person (that's doesn't include you Z) deserves a second chance...
I hate getting vocal about this "rivalry", but it really pisses me off when they get all high and mighty about their precious "site".
Treating people with respect and offering a community to discuss ideas and opinions openly is what we're about... So tell them f00lz (yes Z, it's in l33t!) to shove their rul3z up their ass, and make the switch to PS2-Scene... Sheesh... I need another scotch!
And considering the fact that I know quite a few native-english speakers whom would be unable to spell to save their own lives/the lives of their first born, it's asking quite a bit to get people for whom english is a second or third language to spell correctly and use proper grammer.
Granted, I've seen some posts here which I couldn't determine if someone needed help or wanted to have relations with someone's dog--but compared to the number of posts where people actually need help and get it, there are very few completely unreadable posts.
And I really can't remember the last time I saw someone posting in l33t--didn't that die off 4 or 5 years ago?
hehehehe - I know what you mean!
