Thread: RIP I hereby Rest my Case on the Marathon

  1. #1

    Default RIP I hereby Rest my Case on the Marathon

    These will go on and on like a Marathon.

    It's Not Defamation.

    It's Not Sour Grape.

    It's Not Sportsmanship.

    It's Not Even a Competition!

    So Long I'm Migrating away from photo competition.

    Sometimes, we have to do what we have to to be happy, or retain our sanity.

    oh my word..

    don't you have any better to do?

    why don't you just take part in all the competitions, lose and start bitching threads about every single one of them?

    in london, when it comes to students, we all have a saying that "someone has to take the smallest room" when it comes to rentals.

    equal opportunity (to win) doesn't mean equal outcome. not everyone wins, it is subjective, blah blah blah. if anyone organises a competition where everyone gets a prize, then it will be a sad day. does anyone want to see a never-ending chalice of olympic gold medals in london 2012? or every single football club in the uk waving a golden cup? what is the fun of the competition when you take away the chance to lose (and do better in future)?

    so what if you don't win? there's always another one. so what if you don't agree with the judging? don't you think the judges are more qualified to judge?

    what i cannot take most is that you just run your mouth without any ounce of sensitivity. you are emotional, you are upset, and you show it in a blazing glory of fire. that takes away any ounce of credibility that you may have in your claims and demands for more transparency, and leaves me with the impression that you are a sore loser.

    have a good day. and for your health's sake, please don't take part in any more competitions.

    such an emotive outburst.

    for your health sake, you should retire from Kopitiam for (your own) good!

    that's true

    "when you gaze into the abyss, remember that the abyss gazes into you."

    i guess i got carried away, since one of the shots he was talking about was my friend's, and i think he was really, really, really being very rude about it. apologise for the emotive outburst. and thanks for the cold water..

    where are the winning works?

    if there are photographs that every single human being on the planet love, then whoever took them, must be a very rich man.

    It is surprising to find that you are surprised by the fact that he is always surprised which is not a surprise of all surprises.
