Same sentiments here.
CS is a place where we can share info and clear our doubts from experienced one. But most oftenly, your seeking will turned into laughter by some who thinks that they are long-timer here but gave in-constructive remarks.
I truly respect some individuals who really answer to your questions and respect your thread. But for those who tried to condemn you without even knowing who you are (especially if you're new), how i wished i can bar them from the threads.
And... does a person with alot of photography experience, post very little in CS, considered a newbie? Why draw the line until its so thick since its a public forum?
Which girl bought you your new car? (as in your avatar)
i can't stand the people who keep saying other people's photographs suck
More than half the posts in this thread are totally nonsensical and irrelevant.
I understand this thread is in the "Kopitiam", and some frivolity may be tolerated. But more than half the posts with stupid "wise" cracks?
Coming back the the issue, I believe this things happen because the admin and mods have allowed it.
For example, not withstanding the rule on "nice and civil", many are flouting this rule in the name of being honest and direct.
Another example, OT posts, such as those in the thread, are again tolerated to such ludicrous extent that it seems pointless to get mambers to engage in a topic that is of genuine concern to some members.
Let the people decide which ones are useful comments, experience will learn, and people on Clubsnap will know who give proper comments and who doesn't.
Some people are harsh in their words, some don't, but thats life, not everyone writes, talk, think the same way........
Some people also need to have the last word, let them be, as long as it stays a healthy discussion (instead of a debate where someone wants to 'win').....you don't need to always react to those who annoy you.
Wa lau hey! Long ago since I have written such a serious post!
I was for once not OT'eing, we have to learn to accept that there are in 'your eyes' these 'imperfect' persons......
I know some people here needs to be knocked on their heads, but for some these won't work anyway, why waste your energy to those people? By keeping reacting to these people, it usually gets out of hand, and perhaps that's what they want?
