moderation is the key to peace in this forum, that's why we need the Mods to be around isn't it.
Both extreme sugar coated praise and criticism may harm the growth of the talent of the forumer. But suitable/tactful criticism and praise should boost the forumers to extra miles in the future.
I think the Mods were just acting on bring moderation back this forum.
Just my newbie thought.

So, will the mod in question warn those who post praises when praises are not due and warranted?
I doubt it.
praises are said and forgotten. insults are carved into stones.
when you create bad blood in the forum with your words, are you expecting the mods to sit back and enjoy the show? psychologically you're creating a barrier for others to come in to share their pictures. how is that going to help CS?
If someone praises you, would you find a need to question why he praises you?
Like, "hey, DP, you are wearing a nice jacket today."
Which confused person you know would reply "oh, really? can you explain in detail to me why it is nice?"
As opposed to, "hey, DP, your jacket is not so nice."
And if you are truly interested you would ask "why so?"
And he might tell you that it doesn't match your trousers, etc.
And compared to, "hey DP your jacket blardy sucks i feel like throwing into the trash"
Would you say: "sure, let me help you do it for myself"?
Anyways, for my quoting of your discussion in another forums, it was partially in jest, but I did hope that you would see where I'm coming from. =(
no need to sugar-coat or give harsh comments. just be civil to all bros/sis here.
Respect the individual and if got nothing nice to say, then simply save yr keystrokes.
"yr pic sucks/belong to recycle bin, u shooting wat ar?....etc..." = "you need more practice on yr lighting/composition/framing/focusing etc....."
my 2-yen....of cos, there are some individuals here who are so full of themselves but that's another story....
