    I am a faithful and longtime iOS user, being an early iPhone adopter and iPad as well, both on day 1 and still to this day. I have always used Windows OS's for my PCs but never considered myself a Microsoft fan or was interested in anything about the OS other than doing my work on it. With the new direction MS is promoting, the new hardware, the new software... I have to say, I am very interested now in MS products in the same way I used to be interested in Apple. Not just for utility, but for style and vision. And here I am on the verge of selling my iPhone5 and my iPad and investing in MS's entire ecosystem by buying a Lumia950 and a SurfacePro4, and what do I see when I come to the biggest Microsoft fan site on the internet for information?

    All I see are trolls and malcontents. In every forum, in every thread. I've never, ever had to block people on a forum I visited before yet for some reason this forum is especially diarrhetic and within a few days of reading threads I started up a block list for people who obviously have nothing to contribute to any discussion other than venom.

    I've never seen a fanbase so intent on destroying the very thing they were obsessing about before. Not even in game console forums, or automotive forums. It's... weird. You guys are weird.

    Okay. Can we ask people who say really REALLY REALLY dumb things for their address so we can deal with them in person? Not talking about people who say the merely outrageous or ridiculous. So basically, anyone who disagrees with me.
    You didn't post your address, so... no.

    Who you take behind the barn for a deserved whooping is your business and not the responsibility of Windows Central.

    I didn't like MS at all in the past despite using Windows and Office because I didn't like the "evilness" of how they did certain things. Now they have been out-eviled so soundly, they had to become "good" because it was the only space left. LoL. So I like them now, not so much about the products which have mostly been okay but because of the newfound morality. BUT, I'm a little worried about their recent attempt to get customers to blame other customers for their behavior; specifically claiming they had to cancel OneDrive space for 15GB users because some other users are tying up 75TB!

    I am re-evaluating my take on Microsoft evilness in light of their attempt to blame so called abusers for price changes they would do anyway.
