To Mr Leong23:
Do follow the thread before you suggest any idea of a hidden agenda. If you are not in the loop, please read up beofre putting in your say. As Mr Vonlichenstein already mentioned, it was meant to be a rhetorical question. At least someone understands.
To Mr Ortega:
Thank you for being so honest by mentioning that you do not know exactly what had happen that warranted the shoot organiser/ course organiser to be booted out. I take my hats off to you for this. You are someone whom I can respect.
From what I hear, they were booted out because they happen to set up a booth with CS during one of the photography exhibitions last year, as was informed to me by my sources. If that was the case, it would not have contradicted with your rules as there was no pushing/ pulling away from the forum itself, isn't it?
