The OP doesn't have the power to do that, and discussion of moderation is only permitted in the Open Talk forum. Additionally, none of the other forums on DPR have the agenda of removing negative post to protect the camera vendor.

It doesn't sound particularly even handed to want to remove all the so called "duplicate" negative posts, and yet there's no mention of all the "duplicate" positive posts. There are plenty of utterly worthless threads both negative and positive. If you're not interested, the solution is to skip over them.

Absolute rubbish.

There is a concerted attempt to trash Fujifilm, and in particular, the X-Trans innovation at every possible opportunity. I don't mind constructive criticism of anything if it is based on fact but rarely is it. Pure negative fantasy bumblings that I and others are becoming very tired of around here.

Funny thing is it is usually the same 'ole user identities over and over and over and over again.


+1. And ignoring repeat or negative posts is the not an effective solution since users pushing their own "anti-X" agendas usually make their voices heard anyway, often within other threads so a that a useful or interesting post suddenly becomes negative and confrontational.

Quite true marike6. If there were no one game enough to call the whinging deniers out then this forum would be nothing but a trashy mess. Sometimes you have to put your case forward but you run the risk of being slammed for it.


The one overriding issue that has to be dealt with is whether or not individuals on this forum can express disagreements in a respectful and constructive way during a response.

It seems this thread is a counter-example of that issue.  It has devolved into what the forum should NOT be about.  The other moderator and I will do what we need in order to maintain a level of discourse that moves the discussions in a productive way.

Keep it Civil!
