If a comment is suspiciously similar to astroturf, allow m1's to moderate it as such. <a href="http://games.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=548818&cid=23358206">Here's</a> an example. EA got bad press for a standalone game CD that insisted on phoning home every 10 days, even if you weren't using it online. They backed down, but many commenters were complaining just as loudly about the 3-computers-for-all-time install limit that wasn't loosened up. This comment here has all the marks of astroturf:
<br>a.kid glove treatment; b.no mention of 2nd-worst problem; c.offtopically pointing out other "features"; d.apparently written by an English Teacher.
