GG disable blogs

Don't you think its funny how gentle giant have disabled the blog comments on their website after all the stuff people were posting about the SDCC pre-orders.

Do you think they might take note of what their customers are saying now?

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Blog Comments Disabled

We are currently disabling all blog comments for an undefined period of time. This is due to comments posted by a few certain members of our collecting community towards other members that are in bad taste. We've warned twice in the past that if these types of comments continued to be posted we would remove all ability to post.

Gentle Giant Ltd.


Yea right "due to comments towards other members" the only comments I know that were out of hand were to the company. This is so funny. You know every dictator in existence has tried to stop communications between the people. We were just talking about this in history class heh.

Thats a good move on their part. I would delete all that history too if I had people complaining that their debit cards were wiped out. I would have rather them address some of the problems but deleting all the comments about said problems works too.

This is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt by GG to silence their critics. Maybe if their business practices weren't alienating the majority of their fan base there wouldn't be so much negativity surrounding the blog. I guess expecting them to moderate the blog's comments and delete the posts and/or ban the PG members that are the source of the problem would be to much to ask. I mean its not like people actually paid for the privilege to post comments in the blog.

What did they expect when they came out with this year's "rock star" thing. I have no problem with people speaking their mind about GG.

The rock star thing makes them look like a bunch of douche bags.

They're obviously FAR beyond caring what they look like as a company. Maybe when they lose the Star Wars license they'll care.
