    They have all gone to seek the path of the Jedi.

    They can't tahan the antics of the Rebel droids here anymore.

    They will fight the Imperial forces and regain former glory.

    And one day they may return to the peaceful planet of Tatooine.

    Reincarnation can only happen when Galactic Republic is reclaimed.

    Only then The Jedi will return for the good of The Force.

    Before Peace is restored we just have to put up with The Phantoms.

    May the force be with you!

Why don't you just go over to photo.net to have a look at how they comment? They are straight to the point and never go over the line when it comes to photo criticism. Do they smack people with the sarcasms you found here? Don't make me laugh, man. Who gave anyone the right to be rude? You don't expect people to take your words with a pinch of salt if you start the "rudely honest" campaign yourself. Let's say I am your good friend and your girlfriend is really very ugly. Do you like your friend to tell you the 'honest' words right in your face that your girlfriend is ugly? No, right? So the same goes to everyone here - you treat everybody like your friend. Be honest, but polite. Certain things can be honest, but certain things we better keep inside ourselves and shut up. It is funny when people laugh at people and they get mad when people laugh back at them. You can say cynical stuff about new models and new photographers, but why can't people say cynical stuff about you? And why did you flare up? Try to draw a line in what you do. Go head and be honest in your arguments and comments, but not too honest if you have never met the TS. We are only netizens here, most of us don't really meet in real life. How do you know he will take it? Observe etiquette. Observe people's personality first. If you don't know people, don't expect them to absorb your cynical lines. Even friends can fallout at the littlest impoliteness. You might be a solid photographer who has made it through a harsh teacher. Yes, you take pride in it and wants people to take your comments like how you took your comments from your strict teacher, but many others are not like you leh. You are not people's shifu, and in this Internet world they don't even know you! If you have put some biographies in your profile, people know at least who you are. People will respect you a bit and even rethink your harsh comments. Of course, if you don't list out your stuff, people won't know who you are. Then don't blame people for firing back. Anyway, this world is actually very scientific. A rude action causes a rude reaction.

    In case anyone doesn't know what sarcasm is, here's an example:

    Polite: The composition is not good, brother. Can be better leh.
    Harsh: What are you doing? Compo really cannot make it.
    Rude: The compo is so bad that I want to vomit.

    Why don't you try the third line on an Ah Beng photographer wannabe? You will get a beautiful Mohd Ali autograph on your cheeks.

    Anyway, I don't know why you want to cease posting. In an argument, each party wants to win. You can just stand back and let them win. This also reveals the uselessness of an argument. Bro, go out more and take pics and post them here. This is what this forum is for. There is no point arguing, really. I usually make my point and go, that's all. There is no point in continuing an argument thread for hundred over pages. Everybody has a point and everybody wants people to accept their points. This is not possible. And, like what you said, take it with a pinch of salt.
    now that is below the belt, are you trying to draw him out to start another flame war?

    I've known night86mare to lay on the scathing sarcasm and acting like a bratty 5-year-old, so I don't see why he's saying all this about Kopitiam. Has he ever been to a real kopitiam? All the lao ah peks there aren't exactly graceful in their actions or speech.

    Also, why do you want to announce your "departure"? Attempt at being a martyr = EPIC FAIL.
