Obnoxious thread (pics)
Apr 27, 2010

Hello, DP Friends!

I'm asking for your help. I've been a member of DPR for five years ( http://www.dpreview.com/members/6722470868 ) and have contributed numerous reviews and tutorials in that time. I have never engaged in rude behavior, and always try to be positive and constructive. Check out my gallery, I learned that from you, and want to keep it going.

Somehow, more than a year ago, and for no reason that I can make out, I was suddenly banned from posting in the Open Talk section. I get a message that says, "you are banned from Open Talk." And I am even aware that Open Talk is limited to photographic subjects, unlike most.

I have written Phil, etc. numerous times but have never received a single response. It's getting old. It would be great if some of you, my forum friends, could collectively drop Phil, Simon, et al, a line and ask them to investigate the situation. Help a brutha' out. Here's a pre-formatted letter:

*

Dear Phil, and DPR staff. One of our members claims to have been banned a year ago from the Open Talk Forum, but I'm not aware of his ever having caused trouble. Please look into this, because he says he wants to continue contributing to the forums.

Sincerely,

*

Thank you kindly. In the mean while, I'll redeem this thread with some recent shots... feel free to ask questions about settings, gear, etc.
