Don't anthropomorphize digital cameras. They don't like it.

Despite a few legitimate points being brought up by others, I generally agree with you.  The challenges are not a good forum for feedback and the entire structure of the challenges is fundamentally flawed.  Case in point, allowing voting on thumbnail size images, not requiring feedback.  Without criticism it is hard to see the value of participation. Dpreview clearly has room to grow here.
