Rather than. If you are comparing two (or more) things, then it's rather than.

I'd rather be a member of AnandTech rather than a member of HardOCP.

Shouldn't have. Not shouldn't had.

Probably a waste of time to correct someone's grammar after nearly 15 years.

I don't think your reply will be seen by any of the original posters, the thread is so old that they have all died from old age by now.
