Comments on HardOCP - Joe Glass
Read this. This really irks me. HardOCP (Kyle Bennett) had a disagreement with Matrox. Matrox felt that they didn't want to send a sample Parhelia board to them due to their writing style and journalistic practices. Kyle fought back by saying he'll let his readers know that Matrox didn't feel that HardOCP would put the board in a favorable light. Kyle wrote up a rant and posted it. In order to save face and a public backlash, the contact PR contact at Matrox (Sebastian McDougal I believe) buckled in. Matrox called Kyle back and apologized for their decision. Arguments aside, I feel this is wrong. If a manufacturer decided that they don't want to send a sample board for review, then that's their right to decide. To make threats by posting a rant to the public just to get your sample board is unprofessional. You don't stomp your feet and whine because you disagree. That's life. Regardless of how many readers you have or how popular your site may be, you don't threaten manufacturers by claiming to be the voice of the community. May I remind everyone, this is the same site that demanded the resignation of NVIDIA's Derek Perez for strong-arming websites while he was on vacation awhile back.

I don't agree with what he did and I don't believe many readers do either. My advice to PR people - stand your ground! You have the final say, and it's your job to put your company in a good light.

FYI, PCRave will have a review of Matrox's Parhelia ready soon.
