R we missing the point here?

Joel mentioned that if some one posts a picture, hardly anybody makes an effort to comment.

It was not about a tech forum, or a picture forum, it was about when someone spends time to upload and post a pic, we are too lazy to respond.


a) i don't see uploading as providing even a implicit claim on other readers to react

b) there are enough times, where one simply has nothing substantial to comment. - "nice" or even "lousy" is IMHO not worth posting, at least not at a hardware forum

c) i often don't fell qualified to criticise

d) while we see here sometimes stunning pics, there are enough of no special interest (apart for the poster) - so IMHO prior to posting one should do some thinking about why this one pic should be of interest for the forum - after all, this is not Facebook. BTW, it wouldn't hurt if the poster explains about the technical "why and hows" used, to help educate readers like me.

No offense meant...

Spot on Karl.
