    btw, too much sugar is no good, artificial sweetener is worse!

    too much sweets makes one grow fat, specially in the head. but a bit of salt can make the dish taste a whole lot better.

    back to the topic, after reading what happened in other thread.

    I think nightmare86 reply to that thread starter is rude. If you are angry young man, go out and fight someone, stop attacking someone here.

    Take it in context. How many people have asked you what to do when your viewfinder has dust in it, LCD screen is smudged, what lens should I buy, what camera should I go for?

    The amount of inane, thoughtless and simply lazy questions is increasing at an alarming rate.

    Just recently, people have been posting a lot of 100% crops and asking why their lenses are "not sharp". I doubt you would have to resolve that amount of detail at such great resolution. Better still, when asking the TS why your lens needs to be so sharp, and what applications he/she needs the lens to be so sharp for, the TS replies with a blunt

    "I need it for specific applications where the lens has to be sharp."

    I also know! Which department of photography (portraiture soft focus notwithstanding) requires your lens to be soft?

    Seriously, the champions are those ingrates who will ask

    "Plz recommand mi a len for general purpose, portrait n landscape"

    then reply to semi-helpful posts

    "I wan to noe wat len to get. Tell me plz if not dun post."

    Uncivilized and not the least bit grateful for any help they get.

    oh ya, u just reminded me of 1 thread which i am rather pissed off with then i gave a warning to the member.

    one morning, saw a post in P&P, then i saw the 2 pics, and gave a critique, kinda lengthy... cos i always explain in details how i feel unlike those 1 liner... then tis guy go delete the thread after reading my reply...

    i see that its a deliberate delete and not those delete that will repost pics again for critique, hence i gave a warning...

    well, he said, he saw my reply and acknowledge his mistake... i was like, duh... so others cannot benefit from my reply?

    complete waste of my time if you ask me... hence i won't bother now with critiques, esp those u name ingrates...

    i rather go munch on donuts better...

    It's donuts or nothing. Some people post photos on any photograph gallery subforum and cannot take criticism. If you can't take it don't post. Don't expect donuts, especially when you know damn well your photos are substandard.

    There are people asking for which lens to buy, after giving them advice, they will always ask: "got photo to show or not".

    WAH!!!! They thought what, the lens can auto compose the frame and press the shutter for you????

    He is good with pillow fights but never good in street fights.
