ATTENTION MODERATORS, Please define what is off topic and a violation of your rules more precisely

Over the past several weeks this forum's noise level has increased markedly, mostly due to passionate "discussion" on hot topics pretty far off the path like copyright issues, how to define HD and the requirements of external monitors, plus what is viewed by some as blatant self-promotion by one person apparently abusing Sony posting rules regarding advertising his services and products constantly by offering contests and other means to direct people to his site from this forum.

I think the moderators should be more clear what is and what isn't a violation of their posting rules. You should also clear up the mystery regarding any relationship any poster has with Sony in the interest of fairness.

Drop it BB, it's a no win situation. Use it to your advantage, instead of fighting it.

Ain't that the truth.

We're working pretty hard on our applications, and as much as I might think about giving you guys the choice between having us work to give you a better product or having us police these forums, I'm not really willing to make the tradeoff.

The terms & conditions are now at the forum selection page, but the most important thing to consider is:

If you don't like a thread, don't post to it, letting it fall off of the first page.

For now, let's please consider this topic closed. Personal attack threads, blatant ad threads, and wildly off-topic threads are just going to be locked and left to die.
