I don't know. I didn't report the posts or the poster. I didn't even call him a troll.Is the guy deleting his posts himself or is that somebody on the forum side doing it?
If so, I don't think that's right. Critizing Canon is fair game, with the kind of stuff they pull. They actually left out 24 p, FFS. I know, they probably looked at the market and did it for reasons that are understandable from their perspective. But it is just such a Canon thing to do, it almost beats the release of the 700D.
Throwing "fanboy" around towards people defending Canon's strategies is just as silly of course, as I don't think anybody actually cherishes the segmentation. But if that is what it takes for Canon to offer us what we do like about our gear and be happy with their economics, we can live with it.
If having that back and forth is too much for the forum censors I am not surprised we've seen so few actual trolls recently. But it makes me concerned.
Canon does lots of things that annoy me as well as everybody else. I didn't even have a problem with some of what he was complaining about. I did have a problem with the way he was complaining about it and I just didn't want to get sucked into another rehash of the same old youtube talking points. I go out of my way to avoid that and that was as far as it was going. I suspect he took the posts down himself.
It's going to get a lot worse with the launch.
It might be time to take a break for a while until the wave passes but I'm bored to death from all of the endless social distancing where I live.
Now i feel bad. I guess I was a little harsh.
