Thread: Piggy-back

  1. #1

    Default Piggy-back

    Why is it that some people like to piggy-back on others thread to show off their own stuff? Are their tiny-puny 100 x 50 version better than the TS? Don't very much think so.

    2.5 yrs old thread??!


    Here,

    Here again,

    Here x 3,

    Here x 4!

    Here x 5!!

    Here x 6!!!

    Here x 7!!!!

    And the list continued...........


    Maybe I'm living in a cave, but till now, I do not really see any REAL master (and I do mean GOOD ones) going around flashing their stuff elsewhere for "comparison" sake.

    Adding a simple "if you don't mind" after posting the pic = barging into your house, sit on the couch and ask, do you mind?

    Well, if A and B are good friends, I don't see why B cannot piggyback on A's thread to post just a few pictures. Saying show off is too harsh a word. Maybe they are just sharing because they go to the same shoot. If A really minds, then just tell B via PM to remove the pic lor. There is no need to create a thread on Kopitiam and hurt friendships.

    Thanks for showing the links...

    Well, none of my threads, none of my business,

    anyway, if that ever happen to my threads, I will ask the person to start his/her own thread to show his own photos.

    hmm ya, kinda wondering too.
    seems harmless.
    besides this being a forum, is for general sharing.

    I do see a problem when posting own pic (not necessary good) as a purpose to show what he/her have is better than TS?

    Isn't "good" an individual preference? I saw one of his comments was to encourage the TS of those links you posted,
    Keep trying yea? I once started as bad as you are, maybe even worse.
    If you had problem with his photos you should post it there and say why they are mediocre by your standard and if you like to... go one step further by telling him why you don't like and tell him how it could be better and next time his photos might not bug you anymore.

    Don't get so worked up over it.

    Intelligence? Ha, I highly doubt so.

    And oh why didn't you do a holy google yourself when asking for prices, equipments etc in the past?

    Do a Google
    Do a search

    Naah. I can't fight with holy-chanter too. Ouch.

    Yep, that was back in 2007 when I first started. FYI, I got told to search quite a bit too. And at that time, searching for "cheapest price sony lens singapore" got no results on google. I learned quickly.

    Plus, there is no A-mount lens price list in the sony forum, and at that time Sony lenses were new so there was no pricelist to search.

    But i'm sure you're aware of that.

    Ic, Google is everything? Nothing came out from google means no solution? A simple phone call to shops would have solve the problem too. No?

    But i'm sure you're aware at that point of time.
