I agree with you, up to the point where they ask the exact same question that's literally just fallen off the front page, as it falls off (sometimes before it falls off).

Novice users generally are the least likely to know to do a search so this is not surprising at all.

In any event, the particular case that prompted the original post was a new poster who posted twice, 2 months ago, loved his X-Pro1, now two months later he posts again - he hates it because it isn't a DSLR and is selling it. Bit odd? I recently sold a camera and I didn't feel the need to tell another DPR forum where I posted semi regularly - why would someone who is even less involved do that?

Why make the original posts? A desire to share their experience presumably. Having made a public statement endorsing a camera, a person might then feel the need to "correct the record" in light of further experience.

why bother? No one would question it.

What is the alternative explanation? That they planned to rubbish the X-Pro1 all along, that they made a post praising the X-Pro1 just to set the scene for the later rubbishing, that they waited two months before completing the plan? That is more trouble and planning than I would consider plausible.

I'm afraid it seems all too plausible from shilling and trolling threads I recall from the Sony Nex forum and the m43s forum.

John, I'm glad for you that you look for alternative explanations that suggest good intentions. Personally I took one look at it, smelt a rat and reported the post for trolling.
