What a shame...nvnews is where people were able to get help and make suggestions about all things nVidia as well as providing bug reports for their drivers (not just linux but Windows too) as the nVidia devs peruse the site and assist users with issues or even filing bugs internally.

This MikeC may or not be real but just a shrill troll looking for thrills. It is a sad day for the nvnews community and hopefully nvidia will distance itself from such toolbags like MikeC.

While I am not a member there I do browse the forums to read info about driver releases, checking on status of bugs, etc.
