Can I ask - what prompted you to post this? This is a genuine question and not a bait or a flame.
I’d like to understand what your motivations were. I understand that fanboys, regardless of what forum they’re found on, can be a distraction and, while Comodo have their share, so do a lot of other software products.
Is the problem fanboys? Or is the problem Comodo and specifically this new and admittedly different marketing method?
Since you asked,
Fanboys/Girls are those who post with binders on. They never see the faults and we all know that Comodo isn’t perfect.
In my opinion, your marketing strategy leaves a lot to be desired.
If you feel like having something important to do with your life then perhaps join a course that matter. Like tree-hugging?? If you open up your eyes a little you would see that “fanboys” are NOT comodo only… Jet you are here whining? I happen to like comodo. You happen to like some other product? thats fine. Failing to uninstal comodoBoClean must have generated some serious hate on your part…
Prehaps you should aim to join the wilders moderator team… They could use some highly skilled people that can see “all” the faults we other mortals fail to see…
Yah lets ■■■■■ on comodo… You should do your research, resellerprograms is VERY common… most the others security vendors has it… Yet you are like “ohh comodo marketing sooo baaaddd” trying to sell their product…
Fanboys/Girls are those who post with binders on.
I guess you mean blinders. That may be your definition but I would also call someone a fanboy if they defend something from innaccurate attacks. Doing so does not mean that they have blinders on and don’t acknowledge the faults that what they are defending has. It’s also true that what some might consider a fault, others are perfectly happy with. I personally have never seen a poster on a forum who I would consider a self blinded “fanboy”. Oh wait , I take that back in the case of the Linux geeks and some of the Firefox supporters.
I singled out Linux and Firefox supporters to point out that calling somebody a fanboy very often stems from them supporting something you don’t like. Although I will say that it amuses me that Firefox supporters will always point to having to install addons to achieve greater security that what is available out of the box as being a plus. I consider it a fault. They will constantly deride browser test results by saying “well, you didn’t install this or that addon that would have made the results different”. Browser tests should be done with the default install and when they are, Firefox usually falls short of the mark. In security testing especially.
Anyway, to get back to the thread topic, there is nothing wrong with Comodo doing what many other companies in all fields have done before them. Someone becoming a new Comodo user does not make them a “fanboy”.
