      This message is straight from @aias/all nite long from consoleosripoff.com:
      I am one of the so called trolls -> aias / allnitelong.

      Here I want to correct the lie of Chris Price that I am permantly banned:

      "@arul - That's not possible, our understanding is one or two of them were permanently banned previously by Kickstarter staff - for repeated/chronic Community Guideline violations. Again, we gave refunds as a courtesy and to expedite the process."

      I got a mail from Kickstarter that I violated a rule, because I used a picture of Mr. Price so that there would be a possibilty that someone would think I am Mr. Price. Nothing else is true in his statement. I changed it like it was wished by Kickstarter.

      Therefor I got a temporarily denial of writing to the comment wall until the first week of march.

      I am really suprised how Mr. Price lies if he thinks no one is able to correct him...

      I give you permission to use my name / account for the list of the 13 trolls, as Mr. Price used to call us...

      Maybe all 13 trolls can give here in this thread the permission.
      Maybe someone of the other Backers can post my text on the comment wall.

      I would be happy to help Arul.

      @CS - No, we actually will need your help testing with the BayTrail version... ours kicked the bucket and we haven't had time to replace it yet. Please update yours to the latest BIOS and go to Dell.com and download all the (many) firmware updates for that troublesome device. Make sure it is totally up-to-date.

      We will take in the feedback and see if we need to capture another unit for further work. But we don't believe the DV8P video init bugs are related to DV11P issues.

    3. CS on February 21, 2016

      "(And to be clear, we've far from given up on Dell Venue 8 Pro - we will touch base with Intel on their commitments to patch the bugs blocking that device, later this week)." Does this also apply to the Dell Venue 11 Pro?

    4. ACH on February 21, 2016

      @Creator: How about you don't lump the 13 refunded backers in together? Only a few have had posts removed; most of us you are just trying to silence and then falsely claiming you're "banning" us. Extremely disingenuous, but then again I'd expect nothing more from you at this point. If you spent as much time working on Console OS as you do playing the victim, you probably wouldn't be in this situation.

    5. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @arul - Kickstarter prefers if we refund backers before asking for an outright ban. We can wave this if we can demonstrate multiple Community Guideline violations, and they concur. Out of courtesy to backers we are choosing to remove, and to expedite the situation, we chose to refund 13 backers.

      Unfortunately, Kickstarter did not follow through in a timely manner. We expect this process to be completed on Monday. We certainly have complained in the past about Kickstarter breaking for weekends - leaving trolls to attack. They certainly have this weekend, dropping hundreds of troll/duplicate posts.

      That has caused us to reconsider how we engage with the comment wall in the future. But our focus right now, is on shipping Console OS.

      @mmv - Does Kickstarter holds the control of refunding other backers?

    7. RiceFryer on February 21, 2016

      I want to get refund and ban to consoleos.com.

      (And to be clear, we've far from given up on Dell Venue 8 Pro - we will touch base with Intel on their commitments to patch the bugs blocking that device, later this week).

    9. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      We have good news, some 11th hour efforts have netted something exciting... support for the Lenovo ThinkPad 8!

      Unfortunately these patching efforts did not get the Dell Venue 8 Pro working. We're racing (at 5:50 AM speeds) to get new builds on Amazon S3.

    10. ACH on February 21, 2016

      All, please note that Price's use of the word "banned" is a farce. I have violated no terms, and have never been "sanctioned" or had a post removed.

      I'm 99% sure Price just asked how he can get backers' posting privileges removed and KS told him he would need to issue refunds so that they wouldn't be backers anymore.

      Price is intentionally using the misleading term "banning" to put his own unique spin on the situation; this isn't a surprise, it's now he's operated this project from the beginning.

      I am considering requesting that my refund be reversed so that I can continue to post here, for the benefit of the other backers. However the temptation to just walk away and pretend this never happened is quite strong...

    11. MMV=$78K Payday! Backers got NOTHING! on February 21, 2016

      @copier - I can't tell you how excited I am to have my USD back. I can't imagine the joy the "un-banned" backers will feel as they enjoy the nightly builds. And believe me, there isn't a piece of software that @copier touched that I would allow to run on my dog's tablet.

      @backers - Mind you, he is embedding his own apps.

    12. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @Arul - We aren't going to freeze people out of the free distributions of Console OS. But if a backer is banned, by us or Kickstarter - they will lose nightly builds, Pro features as we add them, and early access.

      All of that starts to ramp up on Monday, and we're excited about it!

      We expect backers to be respectful, as we try to be with backers at all times.

      @anyone - can anyone give me the link of Kickstarter Community Guidelines?

    17. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @Ripton - Kickstarter can ban people who violate Community Guidelines, particularly if they have indicated an intent to do so. Spamming our wall, and saying you will do so, is intent.

      We don't want to ban backers. We hate it. We want to make Console OS work. But we cannot dialogue with backers in between spam. At the end of the day, we can shut down the comment wall with rapid-posting automation too... it's mutually assured destruction. The people who are being banned, have demonstrated to us that is their preferred outcome. It isn't ours.

    18. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @Jason - You paid to make Console OS happen. Well, it's happening. Monday we ship to backers. We still fully intend to implement our original vision, feature for feature. We have merged Console OS versions - and per the TOS in place at the time of the campaign... that's our right. It's also our right to change the feature set as needed, to keep the project going.

      We're sorry if you disagree, but continuously repeating your request, is not helping anyone.

      Ripton on February 21, 2016

      @MMV interesting, I was not aware that Kickstarter can ban people from commenting. Not sure if it is going to work as Kickstarter promote freedom of speech for thw backers who use their site.
      Neptune(a smartwatch funded by Kickstarter) also tried to ban backers as they were unhappy with the device or either didn't even received it. But they did not succeed in doing so.
      I am really interested to see how this is going to work.

      When will the git hub ship Console OS Pro (for me and a friend!!).

      That's what I paid for.

    22. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @Ripton - Backers that spam will be banned without refund after this wave. We have met with Kickstarter and discussed this in-depth. Spamming will not be tolerated, by us or by Kickstarter.

      We are not going "in circles" as we have provided in-depth technical discussion to the people that asked for them.

      Ripton on February 21, 2016

      Well since the only way to "ban" people here is to not be a backer anymore, I think MMV is refunding the people who he calls "troll" so that they will no longer be considered backers and won't be able posting here.
      To be honest MMV, your comments here make no sense so it really doesn't matter if you are on the top of this comment wall. The only useful information that can be found here are from those people who you call "trolls".
      As someone who is lurking here from time to time I prefer to read the other backers comments as they make sense. All you do is repeat yourself over and over again just so you could stay on top, but that is a double edged sword my friend.
      If I am right about the refund method of banning I really think that we should all start " spamming" in order to get our money. It would also be fun if when Monday comes no one is banned and MMV is left with, yet again, false comments.

    24. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      We disagree, and have discussed these topics in-depth in the past. We're excited to be shipping Console OS on Monday, and we are focused on that.

    25. MMV=$78K Payday! Backers got NOTHING! on February 21, 2016

      @Arul - Sorry, you probably didn't explore the hyperlink. asuka is one of Christopher Prices' astro-turfing accounts.

      You will see she is a fan and promoter of Console OS in new and unusual places.

      You will also note that Christopher Price/MMV/ConsoleOS is keen on leveraging rubes from their cash via the internet, but gets extremely agitated when a victim turns the table.

      u have already hurt the 13 by banning them, should have just refunded them, but banning, the word itself has separate meaning you know that.

      Need permissions of 2 more persons from the 13 for majority(already have got 5)

      @Arul - I am also one of the "13 trolls". You have my utter permission to do what every you'd like. I have used my full name during these discussions and am VERY easy to find all over the internet.

      One of the touchstones of "trolling" is using anonymous accounts, which is clearly not the case.

      I guess, unless you are asuka*.

      Often times, criminals will resort to labeling you what they are. I've seen it happen over and over again in my life. I'm not sure why they do it. I think it bewilders the victim.

      @Arul - You literally cannot believe anything MMV/Christopher Price says. I'm sure you realize this by now.

      As I said before the copy/paste war,

      The 'banning' is just another deception. @copier did not have the choice of a refund as a courtesy.

      Kickstarter offered him the opportunity to select certain backers to prevail refunds, thus creating un-backers, or civilians so to speak.

      Ian R on February 21, 2016

      @arul- to be clear, I am part of the 13 "unlucky" backers and you have my permission. I got the refund on Friday morning. If you search back to that date you will find all if not most of the select group who were unfairly excluded and given refunds.

    37. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @arul - That's not possible, our understanding is one or two of them were permanently banned previously by Kickstarter staff - for repeated/chronic Community Guideline violations. Again, we gave refunds as a courtesy and to expedite the process.

      The posted below has been informed they will be removed on Monday. We certainly regret that some backers have to be banned, but we cannot continue to tolerate their false statements and attempts at stonewalling through falsehoods.

      We ask other backers to ignore their hate, and we regret Kickstarter didn't complete the process on Friday.

    45. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on February 21, 2016

      @Arul - We are not going to publish a list of backers being removed, for privacy concerns. There is no way you could tally them without that information to begin with.

      We said that we included our replies in that consideration, but regardless... we have nothing more to add. We made the decision in consultation with Kickstarter, as we said, so that we could focus on backers that want Console OS and want support for it.

      @all backers:-
      I scrolled down fully till the starting of commands and using google find option, I find that exactly 2592 comments of total 3738 comments were posted by " Mobile Media Ventures, Inc." itself which accounts for 70% of total comments here.

      And I did search for the comments given by the unlucky 13(but here the lucky, luckiest), here I found that the total comments of these backers does not even cross 500(exactly 471) which is not even half of 1146 backer comments and not even quarter of total 3738 comments.

      "Mobile Media Ventures, Inc." said that the 13 backers are going to be banned because they were accounted for nearly half of our Kickstarter comment wall.

      What is going to be your reply on that?

      The proof of all this data, can be found by just scrolling down till the end and using google find option. All these data's are cent percent true
