Can kiss my ass.

The following quote is a direct copy/paste from an email message received by me from Dell Community Forums and has not been modified or edited in any way.

The thread Re: Command Center 2.6.11.0 Re-Released in Alienware Forum was deleted by the moderator:

COPY OF ORIGINAL POST Your post was submitted as a reply to the following thread: http://en.community.dell.com/thread/19863326.aspx ________________________________________________________ Agreed on the crappy software bit and it has taken far too long to resolve the issues. As for the workaround using the Media Plugin, does this work for the entire boot session? I remember the AlienFX events would work a few times, but it would ultimately become unresponsive. So does your method work just 'reawake' the device for a short time? ______________________________


I'm no longer able to make posts without a moderator's approval.

---- The story of the post is that the latest Command Center release (back in Feb.) for Alienware computers has a rather embarassing flaw...AlienFX events (lights changing to open applications) will no longer respond. The update soon disappeared and only now (April 25th) did they repost a possible fix - altho' according to Dell it's the same version.

The "Agreed on the crappy software" part was in response to another user's comment on the poor service and inefficiency of Alienware and their software (we have been waiting since Feb. for a fixed release). Another user was informing me of a workaround for the unresponsiveness of AlienFX events - which I am happy to report (tho' not on Dell's Forums) that it does work.

It's called "Alienating" their customers... makes me wonder "what else is new" at Dell? :evil:

Haha, good one, G.

Sad, but true. I mean really, was it because I said "crappy"? At any rate, I'm just glad that workaround works so I'm actually happy about that.

Apparently it is not what you said, but how you said it . . .

No actually, it was because of the word crap.

It has happened to me before as well. For no reason.......

Basically, Dell doesn't want anything bad said about them in their forums, so only people with something good to say can say it, and makes them look good.

Same shit, different day. I feel your pain Harry. LOL.

I got the nasty letter and Dell warning for simply suggesting to someone they ought to ask their question on my630i.com for some excellent help. (The replies they'd received so far were worthless--but I didn't say that!)

I guess referring to another site is also a no-no on the Dell site (I haven't bothered to read their rules).

In their defense, they still make great printers and monitors.

Oh, and I don't think Dell actually *makes* anything anymore . . .

I've never used a Dell printer, but their monitors do seem solid and reliable.

I think David's right, they outsource/rebadge/assemble/shipout/overcharge/ignore mostly

Just an opinion you understand...

I also received that email when suggesting that someone come to this site. Maybe it's not a recommended site by ChrisM anymore.

I contacted Chris via PM on Dell Community Forum and he's either playing stupid or giving me the run aroun'.

I asked why my posts arn't being approved and he said it's because I used to word "crappy" which is in fact a "profanity." Obviously, he's referring to that one post that began this whole sha-bang. I havn't used it again and I still have 3-4 posts in moderation which arn't showing...been a week.

But take notice that he didn't answer my question so I replied back, "When will I be released from moderation" in which he replied that he "can see my posts" and gave me three of my own f***ing posts that dated back to 2010 and February of this year.

Those posts were before this whole sha-bang. Obviously.

I sent him another message that said, "Look you dumwit m0t)(erF*%#&!, read my actual god!^&am$# question and actually answer it, you us3l3ss d0uche!!bag. Those posts of mine that you linked me to were from last f****ing YEAR! Blah blah blah..." Ok, ok. I didn't actually say that.

The final and third message I sent him was me again asking (again) "Why arn't my RECENT posts being approved/shown and those three posts of mine that you linked me to were before I was ever moderated so of course you can see them."

He hasn't replied back.

<sigh>

Dimwits.

Well, just got the reply back. Posts have been approved (finally) and my privileges are back.

I need the forum because there are some good people there and I do frequently have issues with AlienFX. Case in point, the recent Windows Update conflict.

So, I need it for its user base and information.
