Why oh why can we not have seperate Android and iOS sub forums. The blatant trolling on both parts makes this forum a joke.

Providing the people concerned with tape measures so they can have at it and settle this once and for all would probably be simpler

And to be honest it isn't just iOS vs Android that is the issue. There are frequent O2 vs 3 threads or the like too that are just as bad

Its not so much iOS vs Android.

Its more "People who buy iPhones are idiots who don't know any better" vs "No they're not".

I know one thing though - if there were two forums, there would be more people weighing in to one than the other.

We should have an iOS one, but not an Android one. iOS is by far the better OS and deserves it's own forum.

Maybe we should follow the big brother subforum rules and have appreciation threads, where it is (genuinely) against the t&cs to post negative stuff . /s

Separating the audience into different parts is pointless. It's always better to have a big place to discuss matters instead of adding a partition.

I think mods prefer to be contacted directly via a contact form rather than being addressed publicly with forum posts.

Not necessarily. Oftentimes you come onto the forum to ask for help with a feature (especially when a new OS is released - be it IOS or Android) the thread rapidly becomes bogged down with "if you'd have bought X Y Z" or "What, it doesn't do THAT, mine has since King Arthur was on the throne" type comments.

If they were seperate, at least if a fan of an oposing OS comes on slating it off you know they are definitley a troll.

I enjoy a debate (and am quite happy to get involved in one) as long as it is constructive.

However, read some of the latest posts - where people who have chosen the "wrong" system are branded morons - to discover that sometimes the debate runs beyond passion.

Also, in a thread asking for help or assistance, a "passionate" response about an oposing system is unhelpful and merely clutters up the thread.

Yes, when that happens I do walk away, but that is a shame for the requester of assistance. Rather like rights v responsibility there should be passion v manners.

A separate sub forum for OS."wars" would be good. That way if you want to laugh at the folk who paid top whack for a phone with a tiny low resolution screen that won't let you change the keyboard you know where to go.

I am all for keeping the main section free from the Apple fan boy trolling.

Having grown up with the Sega -v- Nintendo, Commodore -v- Spectrum and various other "wars", I doubt i'll ever understand the notion behind it.

I've had android phones all the way up to a galaxy s3 and now i've got an iPhone 4s that i'm completely happy with. I'm not about to take 'sides' over it ..

Not going to happen. If you separate the groups, the number of posts drops. This is the Digital Spy forum, it's like the Monty Python 5 argument room!

Well you hardly ever contribute any posts to this forum and maybe you are just not used to it and I suggest you avoid the Politics forum too

Passionate people don't get called trolls....only idiots do...say if someone calls someone a fool just because they like iOS or Android which differs from your own a opinion...that's a troll.

I'm the same - never understood. I like what I like and other people like what they like.

Maybe it comes from having a Commodore and a Spectrum?
