You see, I really do not care if other agrees with my comment. If I don't feel strongly about something, I won't comment on it.
Then the second quote, that is ... imaginative.
I respectfully submit that you do indeed care what others think about the comments you make. That's why you make them, and in fact, I believe that's why you deliberately make them inflammatory, in order to generate controversy and discussion. Now, while I agree that it's good to generate controversy and discussion, as that usually leads to greater understanding and enlightenment all around, I don't think the way to do it is by posting rude and inflammatory comments.

There are two ways of handling a discussion:
It is obvious which method is better.
- The first where everyone can discuss their views in a civil way and appreciate each other's views. This thread is a very good example.
- The second where one dishes out harsh comments. Some people can take such comments while others can't. You can't control another person's tolerance level, much as you can't control a person's tolerance for chilli or durian. Invariably the discussion degenerates to name calling and any useful comment is lost in the noise.
the person who cares more about the community will choose the former.
the person who cares more about freely airing his own views in his own manner i.e. himself will choose the latter.

Wanna comment on Jeanie's avatar..... no face
Fortunately and unfortunately (depending on how you look at it), clubsnap is a forum open to people of different experience, age, country. These factors all affect what is considered "beautiful" and what is "crap" for any particular person.
It's too easy to judge and sometimes more than difficult to be on the receiving end of the judgment. In fact I can easily find 10 new photographers who seldom post in CS as they rather not be harshly critiqued.
Don't belittle a simple comment like "Nice!", "I like it!". Although, they might not in actual fact offer any critique, they more than make up for it by encouraging the poster to take more shots and in the process improve themselves.
I just hope that people who comment in the future can bring out the comments in such a way, where more graceful choice of words are used. Criticise the picture, not the photographer.
Yea and TGIF!
A camera cannot teach you how to see.
To set the record Straighter, you did it many times to others but it does not apply when you commented on Jeanie's Photo.
Below is the example. You actually know how to sugar coat your comments. If you treat others the way you have treated Jeanie, you will hve less problem with the rest of the people here.
It's A Winner.
By the way this picture is far worst than those pictures that you have poured acid on.

First of all, DO NOT EVEN TRY TO QUOTE ME OUT OF CONTEXT BECAUSE IT DRIVES ME MAD. A mad deadpoet is a bad thing.
Anyway, why don't you read what you quoted before acusing me of sugar coating my comments.
And please do not assume anything. What and which picture I like, is my business. You have no idea what I like or dislike.
Just calm down everyone.
