    Hi roti_prata.

    Appreciate your coming forward and really humbling yourself; as mentioned this is indeed a learning experience.

    Let's move on!

    It's good that you apologised properly. finally. Don't sweat not being good yet, everyone starts somewhere. Rome wasn't built in a day, I'm sure you know all these common phrases. Just start small, practice practice practice. It doesn't matter a bit if you are unable to produce good work at first, as long as you continue to have the passion for photography, you will always appreciate it, even if you don't reach a "pro" level, if you don't intend to work full time in photography it doesn't really matter. What matters is you enjoy photography in itself, not receiving praise from people, else why have it as a hobby.

    You Guys! Read carefully what I'm saying!

    I did not say whether it is right or wrong.

And I am not serious on photography (at least not yet). Pros on the other hand, make money from it, of course copyright is important to them. You stating that taking credit in my professional line of work...that is exactly what I said, it is important to me, because it is my pro.

    Secondly, I said its OT. It is not directly referring to this rotiprata issue. It is merely an observation, or rather an opinion, on my part on how different ppl might view photo sharing. It's like saying i think amateurs like to share photos, and I get flamed????

    Thirdly, why flame others for expressing their opinions? This is a forum, and forums are defined to be places where ppl express their opinions.

    Maybe it is pointless to write opinions on forums? We should all become YES-men in that case.

    I am glad the school pricipal is showing some concern, probably he knows that he is still accountable for the behaviour of students outside school time.....I know in today's context this is quite difficult for most people to grasp, but a student's behaviour outside school is a direct reflection of the education he receive in school.

    Roti_prata: let this be a stern lesson for you. You have made a mistake, but nevertheless finally picked up the courage and made a sincere apology to all. A real man is about being real, and it includes admitting your mistakes. On this point we can see that you're on your way there.

    For every action, there will be consequences. May this be one of your mantras in life.

    To the CS community: now that roti_prata has made a geninue apology, we don't see the "righteous" here who demanded that this be blown out of proportion, coming in here and shooting down his apology? No more Reality TV...

    well, maybe like me,
    the principal believes that education is all rounded
    n does not stop at the boundary of the school fences?

    better that its giving advice rather than punishment though.

    I think it's highly debatable whether this is the school's business. However, if the school gets into this, I would wish it was first and foremost out of concern for the individual, not out of concern for the image of the school.

    Roti, as i've emphasized earlier on your previous apology thread, don't ever do these kind of silly things again. We all here say u is for your own gd so that u don't do the same thing again. Learn from your mistakes cos everyone makes mistakes.

    Heh.

    I think money has nothing to do with it. It's just a matter of pride. E.g. one of the victims managed to get his picture into A.Net's picture of the week. He didn't make any money out of it, but there's a sense of achievement in that photo and there was an attempt to steal that achievement.

    Cheers!

    It's good to see that you finally apologized for your misdeeds. I believe you still owe Bailey an apology too. However, I would like to stress that this issue was brought upon by yourself, not anybody else. Cheers .

    Bailey can be contacted through www.airteamimages.com

    (It's not David Bailey)

    This goes to show that we're not out to lynch a kid (as some has believed) but all we want is a sincere apology. Anyone can type "sorry"...

    As friends of Damien Chng (Jediforce4ever) and Andrew Hunt, I can tell you they are great people. With a sincere apology, I'm very sure they won't pursue the matter.

    I too have been offended by your claims (since I did doubt your story and you lied abt it), but it's good to see that you are remorseful and are sincere in your apology. Do learn something from this.

    Don't worry abt your pics not making A.net's standards... they have very, very high standards. As long as you like your shots, who cares abt A.net? Just shoot for yourself. If you are really interested in shooting planes, I'm sure I can arrange something with you.
