Guys just post a link to the image, don't embed it. Otherwise you clog up the comments section with images that are too big to fit.

Forced meme's suck....stupid tomshardware does not understand that you cannot force things into the internet and expect it to become popular, Those who jump on the bandwagon are generally those who just want to be accepted on the ineternet or just idiots that whant to look kool.

LRDR: Forced meme's suck

You could have phrased that a bit better, and your grammar could use a slight improvement, but I get your point.

It seems as though either Tom's isn't generating enough revenue or wants to increase profits. Considering the slight but steady increase in ads, my guess would be the former. It's still an amusing competition, but, as you said, will probably not take off.

Tom's does not always have news the fastest, and their "Style" articles interest me not at all (that's probably why they have no comment option...), but they still have most of the important tech-related news within a few days, and their original articles are still exceptional. Sure, others usually do their own benchmarks, but Tom's does the best job of summarizing it, and their charts are quite convenient. If I want to send someone who is considering a CPU or GPU a link, Tom's is my #1 choice. Some of the other articles (such as the recent tour of Intel's motherboard division) are also pretty interesting and unique.

If it gets Tom's a bit more traffic, what's wrong with the attempt at a meme? It won't take off, but all it has to do is pay back the cost of the article and potential hammers, which isn't much. Tom's doesn't force you to make your own image of Aunt Ida.
