    Default No Joking Sign?

    http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=149377

    not in particular pinpointing.. just for future references, should old birdies maybe not joke in newbies section? cos i find that maybe most of us guys joke too much, then bring the happy feeling from kopitiam to the newbies thread, den the newbies feel like we are kinda like 'gloating over their misfortune' kinda thingy...

    sorry to shlfter in advance if you feel offended. i'm just discussing about the issue not you.

    Yes please post responsibly, and not like some who post up certain things and when get screwed over for it, say that they were merely joking - imho, a lame way of saving face and backing off.

    sometimes, one or two 'wrong' words used would trigger unnecessary online arguments.
    might be a joke to one, but an offence to another. different people have different sensitivity levels, be it joke or something, cant carry it too far.

    i for one can take jokes, but if you go too far, i jit tao hoot you die

    Saw the thread, IMHO, I don't think it was that such a big deal...and it was'nt even insulting to the thread starter, wonder why

    Let's all just be more tactical.
    I lup SG, but SG don't love me...

    I can't under what's the joke about.

    There are people who call viewfinder as eye-hole, urinal as piss-hole and ATM as money-hole.

    It would be easy if everyone uses the same English dictionary and not inventing new words. Okay it's not dictionary. It's words book.

    Please be serious leh.

    To avoid more jokes, here are some of the photographic terminology I've heard some people have used:

    Camera strap: Neck string
    Tripod: Camera legs
    Lens: Black tube
    Medium format: Big camera
    Any photographer: Pro
    Any girl: Model
    Cable release: Hand string
    Flash: Fast light

    Thanks for the compliment But I do value your inputs with high regards lor.

    It ain't so easy to find someone who dared to admit or share the same IQ as me

    Hence, your IQ maybe lower....but EQ is definitely higher than mine lor

    Honestly I think the threadstarter is way too sensitive. I don't find anything wrong with it. If someone finds eye-hole funny, so what? Is that an insult? Is that so personal? Do you mean all reply should sound like what I'm doing now? You don't have to reply because I don't care.

    ** interpret this as a joke for those who don't mind jokes, and for those who do.... sigh...

    Some of my employers have complained that my IQ is too low. I asked them how much IQ does he need to push the exposure button?

    actually I quite agree with DCA. sometimes somepeople (not pointing to anyone in particular) like to bring laughter everywhere. Like what shlter said, if he knew what the eye-hole is called, he won't be using the term eye-hole already.

    Search on the net before posting some say?
    - How to search if you can't get the terms right?

    Sometimes it's not about NOT searching, but about not knowing how to search.

    Some might not see if there's anything wrong but it's about respecting others. Imagine during your BMT days where you were mocked at because you don't know how to climb the low rope by your instructors. I never had problems with the low rope so I wun know. Will you feel humiliated?

    New recruit stops at low rope and struggles.
    Instructors: "hahaha.. low rope also don't know how to climb.. hahah "

    Don't take things that you know for granted and that others will also know what you know.

    i noted that Ah Pao used 'haha'... i dont know about you guys. i personally dont think Ah Pao was laughing at him. more like saying 'oh well'.. to me.

    haha.. hey guys lighten up

    That's how I feel as well.. and without the "haha", Ah Pao actually helped him by mentioning what it is really called.

    If one searches google for "eye-holes", one will get:
