Re: Mamutu vs PrevX SafeOnline
The A vs B rule primarily applies to the anti-virus section, where the products being compared are virtually identical. Whether an AV scanner alone or a full blown suite, the software in that product space are the same in architecture and functionality, so, asking which is better or which should you use is pointless as it almost always comes down to user opinions and personal favorites.
As to this thread, like Scoobs72 and firzen771 pointed out, the two products in question are very different in architecture and function. I view the thread starters question as more "what is the difference between these products, how they work, and what they are intended to do." In that regard, this is a valid topic of discussion. People can discuss the different approaches for each product and how they complement the other products the person is using.
A last point about posting in threads, firing off the "this is an A vs B - it'll be closed." People really need to stop doing that. If you find a thread that you believe violates a policy, use the Report Bad Post function to let the staff know about it. Don't post in the thread itself because we may see things differently than you and leave the thread open. The "A vs B" comments then simply end up taking the thread off-topic. Here, one person mentioned it. Another commented on it. And now I've had to reply about it, in hopes to not have the thread go so far off-topic that the thread starter doesn't get any more helpful replies. No doubt someone will now want to comment on my post and debate the nature of "A vs B" which will further take the thread off-topic. Well, don't do it. I won't reply further on this policy and any post that is made here about it will be removed.
The very next posts in this thread ought to be about Mamutu and PrevX.
