Guys, being disrespectful to anyone, including our highly valued members that are Dell Representatives, will not be tolerated. It is perfectly acceptable to express your dissatisfaction with the throttling in a civilized manner, but smarting comments and the like will not only be a disincentive for Dell/Alienware to help, but it may result in infractions or banning depending on the content. I think some apologies are in order, and I will be the first to apologize (on behalf of others) for things that were posted that are inappropriate. Please keep the comments civil so we don't have to lock the thread or take adverse action. I invite some of you to edit your posts. A number have already been deleted.
