Quote:Almost any kind of objective opinion- be it one of poor value for the money,overall poor performer,extremely hard to keep collimated,not recommended,poor light transmission,optical abberations,etc.,can easily be substituted as an adequate description of opinion instead of using the word junk. Any astro gear is fair game for ones perceived opinion as to the value for one's astro dollar,but also deserves a fair critique that refrains from just using one singularly negative word.
Using the term junk is also unimaginative,non-descipt and unfair to the manufacturer and to those that read these posts. Using such a dismissive term really provides no useful information and serves only to provide fuel as to provoking potential arguments from folks with differing opinions.
Speaking on behalf of the Administrative and Moderating staff here at CN,I ask that we all please help steer clear from the further use of the word.
