MSI Apologizes for RTFM Joke
I am not going to comment on whether or not this joke was pulled too early because to me it was pretty damn obvious that this was a joke...regardless of the day it was pulled. So, if you are one of the people that actually thought there was a "RTFM chip" installed on your motherboard, you obviously should have ordered the optional SOH chip (sense of humor) instead. Anyhow, that's just my take on this, your mileage may vary.
RTFM chip had been monitoring the behavior of users for "some time," the email from the company said. "So MSI decided to ban people from support, RMA, and the forum who has done the damage themselves or didn't read the manual the first of next month," it said. "We know who you are, and we have gathered enough information via our RTFM-chip."
