    Well the other day I got this email from MSI, the poor English made it a bit entertaining (such as ASUS' lame saying "Heart Touching", how the hell can my mobo touch my heart?). I haven't used their forum for years.

    This morning they sent me this

    A little to early for April Fools indeed...if anyone wants to post this as news feel free!

    "t means it can detect if you read a manual" and "As we have been monitoring peoples behavior for some time and combined those with the RMA information from returned boards.
    At the same time monitoring questions on the forum and matched the IP's."

    gave it away for me right away. The first thing isn't possible.
    The second thing would be too time consuming and cost too much to actually make it feasible. nice try.
    For the people taking it seriously.. smile a little more, life's too serious as it is.

    The RMA part, although funny, is probably right on the user error part/pebkac. :p
