Re: Is the EX1/TL500 OK for my tech-clumsy mother?

I agree- some of his points were reasonable. Except for when he started accusing the OP of buying what he wants and ignoring his mom's wants.

My problem isn't usually his advice- it's the way he gets these delusional (if not delusional, because he has fun trolling) accusations in his head and splatters it on the forum.

Where he tries to make me out like a troll for Pentax when I was just inquiring what else Pentax could have done with the K-01. Then after saying I'm trolling, he still comes back and participates in the thread, and when I ask him why when he thought i was trolling, he says "Just answer him clean and straight" like he's some kind of condescending adult, and when I ask him why he would answer at all if he really thinks I'm trolling, of course, he has no answer for that because he's the troll.

Oh well done - another thread ruined with antagonistic comments. What is it with you lot? I don't much like snake's hot headed behaviour much either but I thought he was making some reasonable points on this occasion.

Anyway, the OP needs to ask his mum for her input - not a bunch of gear heads.
