Does this actually sound courteous and not inviting a debate? We might have different understanding to your view and my view, so we would just have to agree to disagree. And when I say the same thing, it became a personal attack... just because I capitalise the word "YOU"? Plus using your own words again,If by now you still don't understand what I am trying to say so be it.
"Don't start stuffing words into people's mouth like a rhino bashing into the bushes. You are free to voice your opinions and I respect your views."was this consider as a personal attack? And when did I ever stuff words into your mouth. Read your own text again and it sure sound like lecturing... especially with the capitalizing of some of your words.
But you are right, you are not here to make enemy, I am not here to do that too. The bird watching, birding and wildlife photography community in Singapore is pretty small, we are bound to knock into each other one of these days... so it would be better than I take a cool pill (I hope you too) and be cool alright?
But there is a few points that I would bring up with regards to my statement as quoted by you too,
"Plus... by breaking a few branches... would actually cause so much stress to the birds? Don't underestimate nature. If it was that weak, it would had long ago been destroy." I am not in anyway trying to misled anyone into thinking that breaking of branches is correct. What I mean is mother nature is not as weak as many had make her up to be. But what is more important is the following sentence
"yes if there are a couple of millions of people breaking a few branches each for a couple of days, the damage will be tremendous" I do agreed that it is not good to go bashing into the forest and start clearing a path for people to move around. But as I have mentioned again,
"how many wildlife photographers are there in our community? How many actually go all out and into the mangrove? Did anyone actually see huge number of broken branches and trees that are a result of random breaking by careless wildlife photographers?"
So that statement is merely aimed at a few photographers or people who go into the forest and irresponsibly broke branches off... the number are small... and it should not affect that much of the forest or nature or whatever anyone likes to put.
Yes... again... I apologise for being very harsh and straight forward in my replies. But I would also like to point out that you are not exactly that polite in your replies to me too. What I suggest is that, you and I both shares different views, so we will have to agree to disagree, and both of us should take the cool pills and look as this as adults.
