I know you've been called down for being pro-XM, so maybe that makes you feel that this forum hates XM, but that isn't the case at all. In fact many of us mods actually are dual subscribers.
I remember just about two months ago, someone in this forum wishing XM would just disapear and I posted aking why that person would want no more XM. That person never posted back.

It is not bogus, you and I and everyone else have seen anti XM posts on this board. Don't pretend it don't exist. Look at the Stiletto forum Everytime you see a negative Stiletto post, people jump all over that person accusing them of being an XM fanboy. Are you guys blind here? Sure you guys discourage it, but it does happen here.

I have even seen people go to XMFan and XM411 just to bash XM and say how much Sirius will take over XM. Again it happens both ways.

Exactly he never posted back, you know why? Because he was given a warning and he decided that this forum wasn't for him. You think they do that on XM fan or XM411? I know for a fact they do not. Folks can have an opinion but we do not openly allow XM bashing. Folks can make comments in passing, but if they continously bash XM, they will be warned and they don't stay long. Very different scenario that what goes on via those XM forums in comparison to SIRIUS. I've seen Ryan over on XM Fan join in the bashing. Ziggy use to be bad about it, too but he finally grew up, but I think all of us that have been fans for 4 years finally turned the corner and got away from that sort of behavior.

So, I stand by my claim.... We do not give folks an avenue to constantly bash XM, so to say it goes on here like it does at the XM forums is indeed bogus. We don't control every comment that anyone makes, so you may see a comment from time to time, but it is dealt with and does not continue. Can you say the same for those other guys? I don't think you can.

Does it really surprise you that folks would go to XM411 or XMFan is make pro or anti SIRIUS post? That is for them to deal with if they do not then it must be okay with them. All I know is that as a mod on this forum, it is our policy that we do not allow posters to just continously bash XM.

People who bash either XM or Sirius need to remember why they went to satellite radio to begin with. After listening to both and comparing it to AM/FM I can't imagine ever going back to terrestrial. If people are going to bash anything it should be AM/FM.

Whether you like one over the other we as satellite radio listeners are all in this together. IMO it's in everybody's best interest that both companies survive and do well. I personally don't like Howard Stern but if that is what it takes to bring in more subscribers then more power to him.

I think the next time anybody feels like bashing either company in any forum they should imagine what life would be like if they didn't have either.

Just my opinion!

I don't understand your point about the Stiletto, are you saying you want to bash the Stiletto even though you don't have it and are angry people would call you an XM fanboy??? I own the Stiletto and I am 100 percent happy with it, it is easily the best radio available for Sirius, what is there to bash other than the price. Or do you want to point out XM has better options for portable devices? newsflash, the people that have bought Sirius actually want to listen to Sirius programming.
