    Having been in cyberspace long enough (ahem ), been seeing such threads once in a while. It's a vicious cycle, it dies down, and after a while, it comes back again. Then someone will say something, then it dies down again, and after a while, it comes back again.... it'll not end.

    It's cyberspace, unless you know the person hiding behind his 'nickname', otherwise, save your time and efforts for better things in life.... instead of 'reprimanding' someone whom you do not even know (he may even be just a 12 year old kid). It's not worth the effort, you get 'worked up', it spoils your day, you burn some brain cells by composing long replies, re-reading what you typed, and worst, you shortened the lifespan of your keyboard, and later have to spend money to buy a new keyboard!! And it's all for someone whom you don't even know!! Doesn't make sense to me...

    Life is short.... I'd rather spend the time with my loved ones (camera included)!!

    if others don't agree with your comments, take it on the chin, get up and learn for next time. but please, "nice shot", "great capture", "bleah...." or "snapshotish" don't count as valid comments/critiques. it does not show respect to the poster of the photo who basically puts his/her rep on the line.
    precisely

    in fact, if you're unsure if a photo is good or bad, why not post it up

    there were photos i thought really sark, but a lot of people like, then some i really like people say sark leh

    i cannot stand the people who go around leaving "nice series" "nice!".. i mean yeah it happens on flickr all the time.. flickr is a sugar-coated donut society

    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.
    so if i am angry old man, i can attack people here?

    well, what's trash to some is treasure to others. that's what makes life interesting, we're all wired differently. but every now and then, we come to the same conclusion, that's when you know it's good... or bad.

    don't tell me my photos suck, tell me why you think they suck. at the same time, don't tell me the photo is 'nice', i want to know why you think it's nice.

    Back to this topic of discussion of wearing glasses while shoothing.

    Seriously dandruff, do you expect to shut people up with your witty one liners? I dont think anyone sees eye to eye with you when you start mocking people's ages. "1986? LOL" Im sorry dandruff, but the specks of dirt on my hair are a good 22 years old as well. How would you like it if someone started cussing your mother? Git real man. Dont go all heated up and start flaming people for the wrong reasons.

    And one more thing, does anyone here genuinely shoot with their sunglasses on? I mean dude if you are bona fide.. you could be on TIME magazine man. How does it feel taking pictures with GND filters on your spectacles ?

    A question can seem very inane to someone who had been in the hobby for a long time but might seem like a serious question to someone new.

    It's like a Primary 3 kid asking a uni grad a science question and the latter saying it's a dumb qns.

    But seriously some question is really dumb, it's common sense.

    Ask ppls how to take photo with oily nose, glasses, sweaty palm.

    Is it something wrong with our edu systems, too much spoon feeding?

    I agree with this, we shouldn't be stopping people from asking questions they want to ask. If you think its inane, just don't reply and skip to the next thread.

    I'll just google and read posts in CS, search if needed, it is enough for me most of the time.
    I'm always in CS, but have not been posting.
    One of the reason why I'm not actively posting is that I'm afraid of asking the 'wrong' questions, then the chain effect happens...

    Then you'll get the "wrong" answers.

    There is nothing wrong with telling people that they should search the FAQ's or Google or Wiki or past threads. The "please spoonfeed me" mentality is not a good one to encourage.
