    Something wrong with them, because they're making money? By now most of us know these companies produce good quality products and are two successful Giants in this industry hence the dollar sign. I don't believe that it necessarily implies that the company is bad or that there is something wrong with them, but I agree to disagree with you.
    Since every company tries to make money, the use of a dollar sign implies something beyond that, such as obtaining money via immoral methods.

    And there's nothing wrong with discussing that. But consolidating that discussion to "M$" is an example of minor trolling, since you're speaking foul without expanding upon it. And if you are expanding upon it, then there's no need to use the dollar sign.

    Fanboys don't like them, but fanboys are the ones who are using them (generally of course). Are while you and I might not be offended by "M$" or "$ony", we can't just let the fanboys run free on our forums.

    Anyone that actually uses these forums more than five minute a day knows there are two, maybe three, active members that don't even have a playstation. That doesn't mean anyone here hates the PS3, Sony, etc. Saying that there are more Sony haters on here than supporters, or whatever, is a complete farce.
    Indeed. I am surprised this continues to be honest.

    It could imply a variety of things, such as success or lack of, depending on how well the company is doing in your own point of view.

    .
    A minor tweak on a company's name (g.e M$) doesn't always imply that your "speaking foul" about a company though.

    Are you calling Lethal NFS a fanboy?! jk And yeah I explained exactly that on my pm lol, by the way I had no idea you were the one who handed out the warning, no wonder your all over the thread lol.
    I just think its ridiculous, was never calling for a change in the rule, just wanted to know why some get worked up over it even though I knew.

    I don't even think the implication is that MS makes money...the reason (I'd think) why people use the $ sign is to imply greed...not just making money.

    There's a huge difference between a company wanting to make profits and a company ran by greed. And while I know some people might say after this post that every company out there is greedy...that's just not true.

    Every time a company becomes greedy, they eventually do lose out until they straighten themselves out. EA for example. They had to do a lot of fixing before people started to like them again. I'm pretty sure it was bad for their business or else no one would put effort in pleasing their consumers.

    Anyway, I think it's wrong to use it, I've never used it before. Do I think MS is greedy? Somewhat, yes but not all of it. They might have a little edge but Nintendo and Sony are somewhat greedy as well. However, I don't need to write the $ every time to prove a point.

    I think the worst thing you can do as far as your credibility, and for others to listen to you is to flamebait and that imo is flamebait. You're diverting someone away from what you want to say and fixate on what your agenda is.

    All true, but I don't think I've ever seen the term used in a way that's not derogatory towards the company.

    So out of curiosity, what would happen if microsoft decides to make a new studio called M$. Does everyone get banned for talking about it?
