Best Buy’s Policy On Ass

Actually Best Buy seem to not even know their own policy, or don’t enforce it on any levels unless it suits their own needs. CheapAssGamer.com were an affiliate with Best Buy, but were dumped with no explanation. The owner of CheapAssGamer.com contacted an Affiliate Program Manager (read: lowly press relations manager) and was told it was the word “ass” in the address. Further digging showed that Best Buy sells numerous products with the word “ass” in it. This is a classic case of a large company pushing out the little guy, wasting time and effort, all because they are after the bottomline: large piles of $$$. Look, if you’re a company, you support the grassroots effort, the people that support you, the ones that make your business a better place. Stepping on them will only earn you a bad name among the niche of people you’ve stepped on — in this case, gamers.

Infinium Labs has done the same thing, by trying to play hardball with HardOCP.com. Little did they know, HardOCP lives to play hardball and won’t take no crap from anybody, no matter how large you are. Now HardOCP is going after Infinium Labs, and there are a ton of gamers trash talking Infinium Labs. Why? Because Infinium Labs stepped on the very people that will likely buy their products. Gamers don’t forgive very easily – we’re a picky bunch, and if you don’t do things right, and treat us like dirt, we’re going to make you pay out of the ass. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  1. Why are there just a handful of posts on the front page these days? They don’t even span the whole length of the right-hand sidebar.

  2. I have it set to display just 7 days of posts. If I increase it, more posts will show up on the front page. If I increase it too much, it’ll take longer for the page to load. I may increase it to 10 days though.

  3. Back to the subject in hand, it’s the usual corporate crap isn’t it. It’s very gratifying to know that there are people out there still who will stand up to these cretins and tell them where to get off.
