Welcome to the INTERNET

If the OP wants to post factual information (i.e, the name of the Nikon rep and the store he/she was in and some other 'real' information) than that is one thing. But to post innuendo and with a thread title claiming only: "D600 price drop soon. Also to be replaced by new D600s model" could even be considered legally as libelous. Just because someone posts anonymously doesn't protect them from making false statements (whether implied as "true" or not.) A corporation which feels it has been falsely represented in respect to any financial potential and future sales can come down hard on this sort of stuff. It's why they have NDAs in the first place.

This reeks of typical tabloid journalism. No facts and nothing very specific; instead just a sensational headline in order to ruffle feathers and sell newspapers. It's called 'yellow journalism.' Next time, the OP might want to think first before they make a headline that was really only posted to grab attention to themselves and raise some irresponsible speculation. DPReview is being equally complicit since these sorts of threads draw attention to their forums and creates revenue.
