This is nothing new for the site however recently I've noticed the amount of negative posts on premium product deals is increasing to the stage it pretty much destroys any possible genuine discussion of the product and discourages people from posting such a deal. The Nikon 70-200mm F2.8 mk II at Jessops an the ATI 5870 at Amazon are both recent examples, while their appeal is going to be a much smaller proportion of the site than many others both are good deals and both were dragged down by pages and pages of negative posts essentially criticising the premium placement of the products.
Will moderators clear up these threads if reported? If so, what is the best way of reporting them? I appreciate for the moderators who have no specific knowledge for the particular item to differentiate between genuine comparisons and pointless ones in which case should individual posts be reported?
