Generally people who give comments that are objective, neutral, educational, helpful, encouraging, intelligent, humourous, etc are the ideal members. But I notice that there are 3 other groups, let juz say, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
The Good - this is the angel group, they will say everything nice. Like someone said, you post an "elephant man" image and they will still say "nice". Every photos to them is , nice series, pro, etc... Personally I feel that too much of such "Good" comments are boring, like insincere, no long term objective, etc.
The Bad - luckily you dont get too many of such members around. When they comment they are really nasty and personal, short and unfair statements. These members are not welcome.
The Ugly - these members seldom praise but are VERY critical in their comments. They survive because they are actually quite talented themselves and they usually give lengthy replies to support their strong and sharp comments. Their belief is that good and insincere comments will not help others to improve their skills but forgeting that very critical comments frighten away many members who sincerely want to share their images with other members.
Can we see which group we belong to? Hopefully ppl will be objective and neutral in the replies to this thread and let us not give any personal attacks here .....
