I'm not sure what part of the link you're referring to but I think 99% of the blame for whatever goes on in the challenges lies with challenge participants, for better or for worse. I've always viewed the challenges as a kind of play area like some shops provide shoppers to keep their kids occupied. With hosts acting as parents. It's up to the parent/host to keep the kids in line, otw DPR can always just close up the play area at their discretion.

Seems the forums & challenges have pretty much devolved into bitter sparring matches over the last couple of years. I don't hold DPR at fault for this at all. They still provide the best info on new photography gear & software.

Of course, this is no surprise given the times we've been told the challenge feature brings little traffic to the site (and traffic is what it's all about).

Sigh...
