    In layman's terms - a Tai Kor Tai (literally translated 'Big Brother Big') and his Sai Lohs (Small Fellas).

    Remember a certain someone (now departed thankfully) that filled the role of the dominant alpha male?
    Just for your info, are you sure that alpha male is gone?

    Only the nickname is changed, he is still around watching you.

    me guilty? sure. but at least i dun do it so confrontationally. and for sure, i dun insult other people's manhood. rest assure, i'm very much happy in my masculinity. all my parts are working in good order. my wife can be the first to testify. dun know abt u tho, assuming u are a man.

    oh yeah. lets say whenever u open ur mouth abt g-lenses, u have the people at nikon sg laughing in derision. really. this, i'm not kidding.

    cheerios. i rather not get into a mud-slinging match with u on a monday morning. me? i rather go out and shoot some thing, to practice my skills rather than just paper-talk abt it.
    You are ridiculous. First of all, being one of his cronies, of course you would be communicating or scolding him offline or 'behind the scenes', and me not being in his sphere of influence (Thank God!) would have to chide him openly.

    Obviously your scolding had no effect on him (which confirms your beta male status or that he has a thick skull or small brain) as he continued his nonsense regardless of your "efforts".

    Excuse me, the ill-will was generated with thanks to your Alpha male independent of my efforts. There are many others like myself who are happy to be rid of him - you just don't know it. They wouldn't tell you would they? This is because they know you are one of his kaki.

    While I may not have organised outings, I have openly given advice in many areas.

    Please, I can if I wanted to, I could go back through the archives to give you examples of times where you were very rude to TSers or Posters on certain posts. Your high and mightly approach to answering queries thanks to the courage accorded to you by your "King" made you just as guilty of brow beating.

    Hey, let them do so! I couldn't give a flying hoot to what you wankers think or do in your own gear wankers forum (wanking obviously being one of them).

    Alas, espn's efforts to steal members from the Nikon subforum hasn't come to much.

    My aim is to inform the newbies and ignorant of the disadvantages of G and DX lenses. And not let you Techno louts present just one side of the story; thus barracking them into buying the latest and not necessarily the greatest. I'm at least alerting them to the possible disadvantages of doing so.

    I've noticed too that there is a possible conflict of interest in that one your close friends has much to gain if you guys push the purchase of the latest and esp expensive High End Nikon lenses like your troupe's favourite - the 70-200VR.

    Oh good, thanks for confirming my suspicions.

    It just that he has become so quiet like a PUSSY cat, recently.
    Oh goody! Lets hope it remains that way.

    Hey, I just replied to Sion's post - That Knight Rider chap took offence at what I said. I didn't even mention that someone's name. I just said recently departed and Alpha male.

    So whose is really to blame?

    Come on, you have supported his antics from time to time.

    But that doesn't discount the numerous times he has been overbearing and shouted down the advice given by others.

    Did a search and found the thread - pretty mild IMO. It looked as though you were edging him on to post more OT.

    Tetrode, is there anyone you actually LIKE here?

    sure u claim you give advice, esp on the G vs D vs VR vs the rest of the world issues, but to me it looks like you think you're higher and benevolently giving advice to the less fortunate. i would like to see if you actually treat someone at your level, and actually call a friend.

    i am wondering becos i have plenty of friends that we treat each other on the same level, and i got to know them from here.

    perhaps you are an island. of course, i would expect your reply NOT to be "yes i'm sorry i see the light now" but u know.. i thot i'd just give it a shot.
