Yes, there are very clear attempts to derail and fill up threads which are considered 'dangerous' by a small number of people posting here

Compare with this following thread which is basically a 'love-in' for the faux-DSLR which *may* be the new Sony design standard and which a number of us dislike:

There was not a single negative or disruptive posting... not one. These guys were left in peace to discuss what they liked

I did post that I preferred my Nex-6, although I can see where some might prefer the hump-EVF. I even mentioned that for ultimate portability, I'd prefer my Nex-5 and no EVF.  So, they weren't left completely without any contradictory views, but no one really took me up on my disagreements.  I wasn't that disagreeable,though.

OH good, I'm not on either of these threads.  Pshew!

Draw your own conclusions concerning the motivations behind such behaviour...

Why wouldn't it simply be typical fanboy behavior?  It doesn't have to be a bigger conspiracy -- there are always those who will champion their favorite cause, sometimes without giving any merit to alternative views.
