    Considering that high definition is only a small part of AV the moderators have to spend a disproportionate amount of time refereeing arguments between idiots that are only interested in promoting the particular format that they have bought into and this is now going to stop.

    WE have tried a number of different methods to cut out the fanboys by deleting their threads or transferring them to sleepier corners and by issuing short term posting suspensions but nothing seems to have worked and the same half a dozen people continue to spoil it for everyone eelse.

    From now onwards for a short peoriod we are going to try out a new zero tolerance policy and if the idiots want to take threads off topic, promote format arguments or generally act as half witted fanboys they will receive a permanent ban from AV Forums.

    Hopefully once the idiots have gone we will have fewer of the "my willy is better than your willy" type posts
