Default A Poll for the diehard reds who have recently gone purple

On one hand it's nice to have access to all the high-def content, but is there anything distasteful to you about going purple? What bothers you the most?

Sounds like indirect flamebait for blu-ray... I wonder how many blu-haters would get suckered into biting on this obvious exercise...

It's not meant to be flamebait. I imagine there are a few red fans out there who aren't totally happy with the purple experience. And I don't consider all Blu-ray fans to be over the top, obnoxious, etc... I am talking about the Blu-ray.com extremists, here. They can be pretty annoying!

Oh puh-leaze... the poll options say it all... but go ahead - if you get a hard-on reading fellow blu-haters echo your own sentiments, you're free to do so. It's a free country.

JMO, but I would say a "diehard" could still have a sense of reason.

So in sense, answering "Feeling like you are hurting your preferred format by buying Blu-ray" is kind of like saying you'd be happier cheating on your increasingly boring wife with the fresh, sexy neighbor blonde - but you don't want too because your nagging redhead at home would be upset. Kind of.

More like cheating on your sexy, cheerful wife with a mistress who does lots nagging and annoying, but buys you enough nifty, shiny things to keep you interested. There, I think I stretched that simile as far as it will go.
