humor based false new-thread posts

Since I have been around here, the role of humor/sarcasm/false/malicious new-thread posts, has been debated constantly.

I offer a proposal, only to elicit the opinions of others: [that is, how would you like to see the forum work if you could moderate it?]

A: Outright false and intentionally misleading new threads , [such as the new 5DIII will have 54MP and 63 focus points, uses only AAA batteries, does away with the rotary controller], posted only for shock humor value, or because the poster thinks such humor is smart/cool, will not be welcome by the general forum reader here and on other equipment forums. Additionally, readers who think that such intentionally misleading/misinformation new threads serve to reduce the value of this and other camera forums, may want to express their disapproval by answering the misinformation new thread poster by pointing to his/her wasting of time and good will.

B: Humor and sarcasm are always fine within the body of a post , but humor for its own sake posts (without relevance to cameras or an ongoing thread/discussion) should be offered in small doses.

How do you see it?

Best to All,


Canon EOS 5D Mark III
