Stan, the 'ignore' box is one of the better things that has happened to Dpr in recent times! . It is still a very good place for some things such as the camera comparisons. Definitely not what it used to be for getting a direct answer to a question from someone who knows what they are talking about
I've been spending a lot of time on the M43 and Fuji forums(not just Dpr) recently (now that is a wild one!)and there has been a fair amount of discussion about paid 'shills' on forums!
I take your point on Hotels. I used to go to Tripadvisor first thing... not anymore Cheers, Tom
