Would you still write a review if the product has been discontunied?

I was actually going to do this today for something that I picked up but I decided to do the other item that I got from that order, which is still currently in stock, before getting to that one. =)

It seems like most of the items I've been meaning to write a review on are now discontinued, including some I ordered last week!

Sure, you never know when the item will be stocked again.

No... what would be the point? Not like someone can buy it after reading my review.

I would write a review even if a product has been discontinued becuase sometimes it has just been discontinued on the site and is still a product that can be purchased from other shops. It also helps people know if the product was discontinued becuase it was something no one liked to use or if it was actually a good product that is just no longer sold.

Yes, I would.

Yup, because like everyone else has said, they could always come back into stock!

I agree with Sam (aka Jul!a) on this.

Yes!

I specifically asked Stormy about this since I am an editor currently. It was explained to me that it is nice to still write one because they may decide to restock certain products again. Just because it has been discontinued doesn't mean it might not come back so it is even more helpful for reviews to be done for this reason.

Edit: However, you would want to indicate somewhere that it is currently discontinued.

Is there currently any way to tell if a product has been discontinued by the manufacturer?

If not, is there a plan to include this information on product pages in future?
