Well, since I have not invited you to, and have not presented them specifically in this thread, your doing that would probably guarantee your ban from the forum, at least temporarily. But go ahead if you feel the need to.

Here's a hint: I don't care. All it takes is a day to change my IP address. Then I can be MechanicViewFinder or whatever I want to be.

Interesting. How many other IDs do you currently have in use on the forums now? Do any of them post Dragan-style portraits? I'll keep my eye out for you, I'm genuinely interested in seeing this great work, now.

Dude, it’s just the way the world works. If you don’t have any website knowledge then that’s fine. I do. Do you even know how to change your IP? Just drop it. The point is that I could be back in a day. The ban would have to completely omit a major ISP, and they can’t do that. If you don’t know what you’re talking about then you shouldn’t even respond.

But all I can say right now is that pretty much anyone could have taken those shots with pretty much any camera. There's nothing at all there that's interesting in any way.

At this point it's impossible for me to know if you actually feel that way, or if it's your anger talking. I'm betting the latter. Anyway, I claim to be nothing but an enthusiast, I've never tried to sell anything, and I would never, ever claim great chops in an internet forum in the same thread where I lob insults at 'lesser' photographers while refusing to provide any proof of my claims of my personal greatness . I would have to have taken leave of my senses to do so.

I’m sorry to disappoint, but I’m not angry. Don’t you even know what you’ve been typing?

You're the one personally insulting me. Do you really think for a moment that they'll even bother with a complaint from someone who's being immature and can't handle that someone has a different opinion than the majority of people.

You're entitled to your opinion, but then others are entitled to their opinion of your opinion - especially if you deliver your opinion in such a rude and clumsy manner in a public forum. Do we not?

I don’t know how many times I have to say this, but I voiced my opinion out of frustration after having had seen just one too many mediocre photographs on a pro camera forum, and it just doesn’t make sense to me. Why buy a $3000+ camera and then post a snapshot? If the work isn’t amazing, why post it? If you need to learn, go to the beginner’s forum and learn.

Glad to oblige! But I really have to continue to ask for a shot - one shot! Just one! Blow us away!

I’m not your puppet. There will NEVER be pictures for you to learn from or enjoy or even disdain on purpose regardless of their beauty.
