It sure seems like they could just close the accounts of the constant offenders, as the items sell out and I sincerely doubt that petey and his spamming brethern contribute much, if anything, to the bottom line compared to the people who do not spam or just cover the forums with chit.
Personally, if I am considering a product and want some feedback about it and the forum is trashed, I just say screw it, I can always buy a similar item elsewhere, if not the same thing. I have a life, so I don't want / need to wade past the same crap daily.
Yes, saw the rants from Rabid2 as well and wondered WTF? his problem was. If you feel someone screwed you, whose fault is it that you repeated over and over? The "facts" are sketchy enough that he really doesn't support his case, so it amounts to just a rant, that is all, and who knows why he put it in the main forums? While its a waste, so is the crap of "1st page", "too much for me", "I want another MP3 player or too many MP3 players", etc.
There have been several users who have volunteered to help w00t monitor their messages (no, I was not one of them), but GC was very abrupt with them, basically telling them to STFU, and maybe w00t should get some help and get them to weed out the obvious crap as its posted. 2 or 3 people could probably do it, and that would help w00t get the "product forums" a lot useful to the people who are actually willing, ready and able to buy products.
