There are those out there who have to have control or stir things up.

I don't think you could be farther from the truth. Maybe I'm wrong but I assume this is aimed in part at me, but from my point of view I just want this site to be useful. If people post advice that's wrong or dangerous, I'm going to comment on it. If a product get's reviewed at 100% and all the reviews are by people that have never used it, I'll comment about it. It's got nothing to do with control or stiring things up, it's about helping all the people who post or don't post and read the boards looking for help and advice. A reviews section that at least 50% of the reviews are question, comments or statements from people who haven't used the product they are reviewing doesn't help anyone. A discussion that states facts that come out of left field and don't contain anything to back them up doesn't help anyone. Somebody coming to the boards targeting diabetics to sell something overpriced with a list of promises it can't fulfill doesn't help anyone.

I guess if that's your definition of control or stirring things up, then I'm guilty and gladly so. I'd rather be accused of that but assist in making the boards more useful for the majority than stay quiet and see people leave because they find no value to the boards anymore. And contray to what you might think, a number of people were getting frustrated with the way the information was getting grouped and how hard it was becoming to find things and were leaving because of it. I didn't just pull this stuff out of thin air to start an argument.
