As a person who enjoys writing the trip reports, I agree and disagree with the original poster.
I do agree that a separate section would be great, if 50 people attend a meet and they all write a trip report, I love reading each one of them. I admit from the WDW Invasion last year I missed about 10 reports, mainly because they got lost in the thread with everything else. If they were in one location it would be easier and welcome to read them there.
I do disagree though about the bad content or the non usefulness comment. Every post is interpreted differently by whomever reads it, some may enjoy it immensely while others would be bored and move on.
It's all in the eye of the thread reader.
