Couldn't agree more. The traffic would be fine. Besides, traffic alone does not a quality forum make. If it did this thread and topic would never pop up.

There is no statiscal data supporting this claim. In fact, there is data to suggest otherwise. Look at the forum traffic before the the introduction of the 5D. Pretty robust if memory serves.

Now that DPR has moderators, they can keep out the doofus' wishing to pick fights with the advanced users.

I'm guessing you're not really talking about photographers in this scenario. I personally would not appreciate a short timer in need of a power fix kicking me out of any forum on this site because I didn't agree with someone that felt they were an advanced user beyond reproach. Anyway, that advanced user versus doofus concept gave me a chuckle.

I'd just like to comment on a couple of misconceptions you appear to have.

1. Moderators are here to police the forum rules. If you obey the rules you will not be given a "short timer". If, however, you break the rules, then your knowledge is irrelevant. And, if you are a long time member, then moderators are less likely to cut you some slack as you should know better.

2. The period of time you have been a member here does not mean your opinions are any more valid than anyone else's, nor does it mean you are in any way superior. The subtle suggestion that this might be the case simply adds further weight to the calls of elitism.

Now, point that gun away from your foot!

Huh? I was talking to Rick, and not well you.

That makes little difference in this context. His points are as valid as any. No disrespect was intended and seem well placed.

I don't see anything in "my" comment about my knowledge being superior, or anything about how long I've been around. Those are your personal uncalled for assumptions.

I would disagree with regard to the "power fix" comments. I may be completely wrong. That is often the case with text only communication. One of the major shortcomings of the net, IMO.

Can a moderator ban somebody because they don't like what they have to say even if what they have to say is not breaking any of the written rules? Based on your response I suspect moderators can do just about anything they want to, rules or not.

They can...but they won't be moderators long. I think his point 1 went well in addressing that.

I need to turn my car around and get off this one way street.

Been there, done that. Know the feeling well.

How about this: Moderators are the bestest people ever. I would let my daughter marry one, if I had a daughter.

I agree
