actually, if the thread is on the carbonex series and someone want to say that carbonex sucks. that is ok if the person give valid reasons. just plain stating that it sucks serves absolutely no purpose imho and not much better than non-sense. however, if the thread is on the carbonex series and then someone comes in and start talking about the MP series or start asking about where to buy rackets, etc, then i would consider that out of topic and better belong to somewhere else. it is hard to draw the line, however, as sometimes slightly out of topic discussions are also valuable. tis is the gray area.
