I had a thread about a competing camera system summarily deleted by a moderator without explanation. Are we not allowed to discuss competitors in a particular forum? The thread was attempting to draw out comparisons between system X and the competitor's system. It was inoffensive and technically minded.

I do not understand how this violated the DPR rules, nor why it was deleted.

I would appreciate some clarification of the rules. Thank you.

There is no specific rule about this (although it sometimes falls under the trolling/baiting rules) - i've restored your thread.
