TS didn't reply to the comments about this thread leh, so which category is he in then? There must be a 3rd group of photographers, those who start thread then disappear, shall we call this group "simply bo chap photographers"?
Opps, now I am categorizing people.

I belong to neither of the groups which I mentioned. I am more of the lesser group around here, reading posts and how people respond to replies. Basically I can be classified under the bystander group. As a bystander, I normally hang out around in the buy and sell section, that doesn’t mean that I can’t come in to kopitiam and talk about anything under the sky.
I am well-aware that by starting this thread and categorizing photographers here is not a good thing. Same rational apply to categorizing models and photo which belongs to the “sucks” category is not a good idea to do so too. So why do people still categorize things? We want things to improve over here. Photographers may still be as egomaniac as long as they like but if they don’t reflect on their skill, well the standard of photos remains as they are now. This is my main intention of starting this BS thread. It is to compare the two different groups of photographers around.
If I am deem as not “cool” by categorizing people, please stop giving comments to photos when you think is “beautiful” or “sucks”. It will make me think the same way as you are when you look at me.
To categorize people into two main groups is more on general analyzing of the forum but if you are to ask me to give examples of the people belonging to the types I mentioned. It will be personnel attacks to the fellow CSers thus I will leave the example of such grouping of CSers to personal views.

so you mean, it's actually OK to generalise - dare i even say, stereotype - the CS community into 2 main categories, inviting an open discussion....and then when asked to give examples in order to clarify and give benefit of the doubt to those being categorised, it is considered 'personal attack'?
as predicted, this 'discussion' is just empty. you are just setting yourself up for being a flame bait proper.
