These days, almost every kopitiam thread belongs to a group - expose yourself, poison, liverpool, man u, sunchaser, tang etc.

I know it is coffeeshop chat but some threads are pretty personal and exclusive to the group. Wouldn't MSN or IRC be more appropriate?

:dunno:

For some its about friendship, meet new people, friends to discuss everyday things in life, or just talk plain nonsense .....

Its fun .... so why knock IT !

Some offices actually block MSN and IRC servers .. Not many offices block web surfing ...

Start your own and try to overrun them... :)

Jokes aside, it's just chatting.. Just join in! Every group has very different sort of people.. With very different approaches to photography, friendship, life as a whole even...

It's just a group of friends using CS as a platform to chat.. :)

You mean it is so hard to provide photo of yourself?

You from 1950s, believe that take photo will capture your soul? take photo only for funeral?

True,

but on many corporate firewalls you can actually BAN IP Ranges, so its easy to keep everyone off those websites ..... !!!

Why not?

You have something to hide?

I don't think it's a very bad requirement. Are you going to complain next that joining a company means you can't wear paper bag to work everyday?

Or that going into a kopitiam means that you can't wear a stocking on your head... Oh dear me...

One of the good thing about these threads is that, it's visible and available to like minded photogs. Newbies are all welcomed, and i don't think any group is exclusive, some groups can sustain and grow, others will fade away.

At the end of the day, it's something we can TCSS and meet new people, socialize and network.

It's such uniqueness that defines groups loh. Juz like you dun join Liverpool/man-U thread tokking about basketball... Waiting to kenn a slam-dunk only. :sweat:

Having said that, it's personal preference that we can't force on you and neither should your preference be forced upon an established precedence. The bar isn't high for many, else many of the groups would have faded away.
