What ever happened to civil argument?
Sep 30, 2012

It seems to come in waves but it is definitely getting out of hand again.

Someone posts something and instead of disagreeing with the point made, they start telling the poster to stop posting and find something better to do, or simply attack the poster. It's particularly bad when someone comes to the forum for help and is told that they are a terrible photographer and an idiot. Or posts photos and is told they are worthless because the self appointed expert replying isn't interested in that kind of photo.

With the possible exception of recognised expert professional photographers (popular bloggers) who should know better, and are misinforming others with intent, it is precisely the people who are misinformed who need the most help.
