comment Why do full suspension bikes seem to be on average £1000 more expensive than hardtails?
pivots are not expensive per se. 'sometimes has carbon chainstays' - does the bike I mention have them? internal cable routing is not expensive, and have been in existence for decades, 'it cannot aford to we heavy, so it has to be as light as possible'- surely as any bike its better to be lighter? same with lateral flex point. 'it aims customers who are willing to pay more' - probably most valid point.

comment Should cheap suspension forks be oiled often?
Don't put random oil on a suspension fork. If it has oil inside it, the oil you put on will just mix with it and create a hybrid useless gunge. And definitely don't put WD40 on it.
