EDIT: I have been informed by a mod that the private message screenshot was fabricated.. which is also very concerning. It appears also that EVGA are aware of someone posting false Heatware reviews on EVGA forum member's Heatware accounts, not just mine ...sick coward.

    None of those accusations -- which you subtly pointed my way -- were me. Please leave me out of your drama trio.

    Well I don't know who did the false-review at this point, but I will say this serves as a bit of a public announcement that the screenshot of an alleged PM was apparently fabricated, which is good to know after it was posted on every forum section.

    I didn't want to talk about it. I don't think anyone wants to. It's best to let things die. But, it is telling that one person was totally erased (banned? who knows), and I am still here.
    I mean, I did say that it was false.

    Apology to Ty_ger07:
    Which is why I posted the edit. I saw the original accusation about you telling someone to kill themselves, I was not aware the pm was a fabrication until a mod just told me. Also wasn't aware that someone has been doing these false Heatware posts to other forum members, so I apologize to you, Ty_ger07.

    As many of you know, we generally do not comment on discipline or other personal matters between members and moderators/admins for privacy reasons.  In this case, to close the chapter on this, the user in question requested that their account be deleted and we fulfilled the request in an equitable fashion.  That's all that we will comment on the matter.

    Heatware has been contacted a few times because someone is making false reviews, and has been for quite a while, and Heatware has stopped addressing the false allegations and just leaves them up.

    I think Heatware is a dying review site as people infiltrate it and we’re posting overly false for sale ads (that got squashed after suggesting they only allow people with reviews post sales) and Reddit accounts copying other users names and committing fraud based on Heatware usernames that didn’t have a Reddit account, and now easily proven false reviews getting posted MONTHS after they “supposedly” happened when it is clear that the user created a fake account just to slander another user.

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags! The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    He left me a negative review too that I had to contact HEATWARE about to get removed. He's not very smart because his IP matched his real account logged with HEATWARE so I'm trying to have his real HEATWARE account banned too now. 


    What's his real account name?

    Good to hear.    Sounds like a couple of you guys might be able to get this person banned based off his IP.

    What a crappy thing to do to people around Christmas when we all are supposed to be giving the best of ourselves to the people around us. Def a poorly thought out plan since everyone in here has known each other for at least 10 years now. I think id fall out of my chair if one of you guys got a bad review and it was real, id def be pming ya to find out. Hopefully this person straightens out his issues and maybe even apologizes privately to you guys at the very least.

    It seems there is someone still working at Heatware - they have removed the false review!
     
     


    Good to hear.    Sounds like a couple of you guys might be able to get this person banned based off his IP.


    It would be good if Heatware would ban the users false account and main account from accessing their site, since it was malicious intent.

    I do know that if you make a post on their forum about a false review they usually take action

    If their alleged alternate account were banned here too, that could possibly reduce their ability to allegedly see information which makes their troll reviews appear more compelling.

    Yes, but I am not sure if or what EVGA admins would be able to do based on information posted to a different website that isn’t on the EVGA forums directly.
