People can make "Nintendo, the makers of defective products" threads, too, so long as there's some substance to it, and not simply "lolz, Wii = 7 million cuz dey all broke." People who were banned were banned because of how they said things, and not specifically what they said. Just before Kwaad was banned the first time, for instance, he made a page-long post about how evil Nintendo was for making a lot of games, based only on the information that Nintendo had 70 Wii games in the works... when there was already a thread about it. Hus repeatedly made posts that had no content in them aside from, literally "lol, ur stupid." Look at the Sony-bashing threads, and you'll notice that (for the most part) they may be sensationalist, but they have a legitimate logical basis, and aren't outright flames.
