Thread: What do you guys think about this comment ...

  1. #1

    Default What do you guys think about this comment ...

    Hello,

    I saw this website
    http://www.nickgoh.com/nickgohphotography.html
    while searching for something else today and there is one comment on the website that says:

    "Invest only in those who are 'Passionate Memory-Makers', not just 'Cheap-labour Picture Shooters' or part-time freelancer /photographer... For You are Special, & You should deserved Nothing Less, but those Who Cares."

    I know maybe shouldn't be bothered. But, do you guys think it's okay to put such comment on the web?

    'Passionate Memory-Makers' could also be 'Cheap-labour Picture Shooters' or part-time freelancers /photographers?

    Well, i do know of 4 freelancers whose profits are higher compared to this pro. Thing is - not much costs/risks at all, shop front, website (usually web gallery will do, cheap cheap), etc etc.... And erm....you know, iras... cough.

    And these freelancers are driven by passion, their pics show it.

    he seems to be implying that part-timers or freelancers cannot be "passionate memory-makers", whatever that means!

    Pro ah? Pro should get people to vet through his website before publishing such bad grammer.

    ....you should deserve nothing less, but those who care.

    Guys... move on. Don't waste time getting frustrated or irritated by this kind of comments.

    There are better ways to chalk up 11K+ posts!

    *espn runs away

    Anyway, I've never had good expectations of people who puts others down when it comes to comparisons.

    Guess it's time for me to charge > 0.4K ....

    now that u mentioned it, i think the word "should" shouldn't be there either. and while i'm at it, i'd replace the "but" with "except", but otherwise it's still correct i guess..

    skarli later we check his site, change liow, as we've recommended.

    Oh... just checked on the meaning of 'humility'... (paiseh... england v lousy... )

    "Humility: The quality of being humble"

    Hmmm......
