    Samsung has been caught spending a large amount of money to have people criticize and devalue competing products on internet forums and comments.

    I personally think it sucks because it's become pretty unpleasant to converse about Apple stuff online as you are met with persistent and often brutal negativity.

    I think the best thing we can do is try to keep positive, or just not react when a brand new user complains without any good reason. I would hope we could work on making this place fun to peruse again... But my hopes are limited since the trolls will come back for the iPad and :apple:Watch.

    It's usually pretty obvious when someone is trolling or trying to spread FUD. It doesn't bother me in the slightest.
