I literally get depressed going over there. I think they should take the MB down. I think it doesn't help Cricut's image at all. It's just not the same fun place we loved so much back in the day. I miss those days.

I just don't get it they allow the fighting but take down posts over a simple question. It's not like you went over there with pom's pom's telling the guy the Cricut was a horrible product. I know you wouldn't do that. You just told him it was not the right machine for his needs and gave him a direction to go.

I have ran a couple of forums. If you pulled a mean girl fight on my forum you got one warning and then you were gone. That is that. I don't know why PC runs the forum like they do. It's like they enjoy reading all the bad things about themselves and enjoy the bad press. My DH said they are probably waiting for PC to fold up so they can collect huge severance package, lol. He was joking but I keep thinking that is why, lol.

I hate PC's updates. I have always said that those updates were lobotomizing our machines. I have been lucky with the Gypsy. I swear the last update caused my Imagine to overwork and throw a screw threw my machine causing several of the wires to be severed. Luckily I have a die cutter repairman in my life. He's my DH. I do think the Imagine is gone. The wires are fixed but now my machine prints but does not cut. I am not using CCR. I am not updating again.

Well, I just sound like a grump, lol. I don't feel good. I still like the Cricut products. I just don't trust PC and Adobe Air.
DeeAnn , I have to say, you do deserve a pat on the back for trying to be fair. You have communicated with me on choosing a machine and really just give your fair honest opinion based on your own experience with machines. And all of it makes sense.
I understand the frustrations people have with PC with the law suite - it's like taking candy away from a baby! When they had so many disappointed and lost customers, you would think they would have at least came out with their own provision for software like Sizzix eclips did.
I really would like to try one of the machines that has the print and cut ability sometime.
My Cricut Create has been a really good machine! No regrets getting it. I went back to older version on my machine and it works great as a stand alone and perfect in the CCR. I just ignore updates there and click skip when it tells me to update. I love the CCR. It has been cutting intricate designs and everything very nicely. I think possibly the reason some may have an issue with the intricacies . is because maybe they forget about making sure all settings are right. ??
I just got the Ultimate Creative Series and wow is it amazing!! You get a little sample from a ton of cartridges! Plus DVD's. Needless to say, I have been a happy camper. haha
