For clarification, (yet again)... Intelligent discussions about products are certainly allowed. What we've stopped is an open-ended question that provides absolutely no criteria
to which people can intelligently respond.
A question that simply asks, "what do you think about product X - I hear its better than product Y" is far too open ended and always
(in hundreds of examples that all can read within this forum section) produces the same results. It goes like this.
Oh, product X is great.
Hey, product Y is the best.
No, product X is better than Y.
Get NOD32, it's better.
Hey NOD guy, he only asked about X versus Y - get out of this thread!
Both products are fine, try them both to see which works for you.
That is almost every thread that has started this way. There is almost never any in-depth intelligent technical discussions in threads that start that way, i.e. with no explanations of why or a basis for such recommendations; no technical details.
However, if the first post in a thread provides real criteria or a strong basis for a good discussion, then it is allowed. There are many examples, these are just a few seen quickly on the first few pages here:
But, sometimes we let them go to see what will happen, and end up disappointed:
It started with a good question, but many of the replies were disappointing. One word or one line answers that only reinforced our opinion that a this versus that
or which is better
thread is just not worth it.
A good opening post can set the basis for a good and intelligent discussion. But, it is up each of you who reply to provide more than: " product A
" If you put thought into your answers, then we will have good, intelligent discussions and not have a thread that looks like what I quoted above. (And pro-NOD guys, I'm serious about that, too. If a thread isn't about NOD, don't insert it!)
Anyway, with that, this thread is also closed.
