    Our best friend is very very busy.
    If you can't wait, please go Nikon Service Centre.

    Wow ! thats a pretty rude answer from a mod. Was just asking for help . You could just say hes normally busy or if u know ..could offer another contact info. The last phrase is really rude and uncalled for...of course unless u are speaking up for your best friend. Thus is really poor response from a forum mod !

    .. it's a very normal advice that if you need it fast & can't wait for bro fatigue, then just go to nikon service center.. I don't see anything rude from that. Purely informational and spot on.

    However I admit that people may have different perceptions, and if your perception says he was being rude, then nothing can be done to change it.

    Our friend is not making a living from providing his service, he has a day job and family to take care.
    He is just helping us.

    Get it?

    Ah...didnt know he got so many friends here. So hes doing all this for free ? Probably my bad cos i tot he was providing a legit service here. Still..as a mod...i think u could have offered a better explanation if u know him personally so that outsiders or fella forumers can understand as to why he doesnt reply pms rather than just key in the last phrase. Technically the sentence is straightforward. Logically and honestly... i think the implication is rude.

    When the answer is short, you think it's rude. A perception.
    Catchlights has always a helpful mod; check his many posts.
    fatigue has been an active member of Clubsnap and provide excellent service to CS members with nominal charge. By the way, if fatigue agrees to service your lens/etc, please prepare to wait cos he always has a long queue
    Check his many posts the knowledge he shared with fellow members on line.

    Every other CSer find no problem to mod catchlights' reply. Neither do I. Yet you kept going on and on and on about people being rude to you.

    Don't be so sensitive. move on. Take this as a warning.

    Thank you and have a good day ahead.

    How arrogant..WARNING wor..i so scared LOL ! Ban me lor hahaha! This is what CS is most famous for ... banning people. Hiding behind the screen being a keyboard warrior and thinking that u own the world ! Your statements stinks btw. So far only one guy spoke up for the mod...not all CSers that you claimed. Pls think before u type. One word of advise.. theres always another mountain higher than the one u are on. CS has very good humble beginnings...sad at the state it is now...haizzz

    An advice to bring your nikon to either bro fatigue or nikon service center is.. Honestly ok to me. It's a normal advice given to everyone who needs to fix their gear but can't wait for bro fatigue's packed schedule.

    Here, a sample of rude reply: "bring your nikon to canon service center"

    Both mods and members here are just trying to help you, seriously. Kindly forgive us if it sounds rude or not acceptable for your perception.

    I never hide behind the keyboard. Everyone know who I am. I think you are the one hiding behind the keyboard. We also do not take challenges to and accusations of the mod or Admin team lightly.

    You should be the one who should think before you type. The sad state is how people like you carry yourself. Simply bad attitude. If you cannot adhere to the rules of ClubSNAP, then don't come here. Your behavior is not acceptable in this forum. And you are not welcome here.

    Infraction served for each of the times you taunt the moderator team. And pending discussions with all the moderators, you may be deregistered.

    Just as SilentSeth, bllimus and shierwin mentioned, no one finds the replies from catchlights rude.

    Also the mod team do not need any one to "forgive". We do our best to keep peace in this forum. And we put in a lot of effort in maintaining the forum, setting up events, talks and outings. The mod team do all these for FREE. So the mod team can really do without all the screwed up attitude. We don't owe anyone anything. If want to be a total jerk to the mod team, we will not hesitate to take action.

    Fyi, bro fatique is personal friend of mine, he had been helping many members here, including me.
    As I already said, he is using his free time to help us. He has a day job, and a family to take care. If you have an issue with this, just go to Nikon Service Centre.

    I have used bro fatigue's services before.
    I really appreciate him taking his time, effort, advice and passion in fixing stuffs. besides, he's doing it in his own free time.

    in all fairness, i don't find catchlights' reply was rude.. he replied, gave you alternative if bro fatigue's not available.
    what else you want?

    Did not find it 'rude' either. Succinct? Yes. Helpful? Yes, answered why Fatigue has not been replying PMs. Provided alternative? Yes, NSC is a real alternative. Rude? No.

    Whether the experience surfing in Clubsnap is pleasant depends on the way members behave and the attitude they have. Mod catchlights in his first reply though short but in the statement includes the word "please". So was he "rude"?

    Any CS members please comment whether the post by catchlights is deemed "rude"
