I know there was one when this first started and I believe it should have a spot to refer to. Maybe it is there and I have not found it. I believe we should all realize everyone has a right to have a opinion about a product , especially if you paid the money to buy it. In expressing their like or dislike or wants and desires both pro and con should reframe from personal remarks like "that is silly, stupid , you don't know what you are talking about and most certainly references to race, religious, gender of political views.

Just felt this is a issue at times and there is no reason for it and I am surpassed it has been allowed to go on.
