Re: How many times are you going to start this exact same thread?

I'm not trolling it. I asked a legitimate question.

I think it was less a question than a comment.

No, it was a serious question. The OP has started the exact same thread numerous times now. Each time, he uses the same three pictures to "support" his "argument" (but no, say, comparisons to shots made with the Nikkor, or real analysis of the strengths/weaknesses of the two lenses, etc...).

I am honestly curious why this behavior. But, whatever...

C'mon... you're not really curious about that. You're making a statement. And, btw, you did get me curious, so I checked all the threads the guy started and somehow it just didn't jump out at me (all these repeated, "exact same threads.") This whole thing has a very personal feel to it... I don't think we need hall monitors here. Just an opinion, fwiw. I like to think I'm fair and reasonable, but it felt to me like the thread got hijacked with this "curiosity" of yours, and that you were more interested in de-legitimizing the whole thread by attacking the guy who created it, rather than offering anything of use to the rest of us. Just calling it like I see it.

paulski66 is not being a hall monitor or highjacking anything. He's a Nikon user and has as much right to post here as anyone else. The fact is the OP has created this same thread before, and seems to be doing it over and over again. He's hellbent on proving something about a fairly pedestrian Tamron lens at everybody's expense.

I never said anyone didn't have the right to post here, I just said he wasn't offering anything constructive to the thread. Why does it bother you guys so much? There are plenty of other threads that would qualify as pointless to me, but I'm not going to call anyone out for starting them. I just don't click on them. And, I did check for the identical threads that were mentioned, and failed to see your point. Get over yourselves, and quit trying to be the enforcers of some unwritten rule. I'm sure there are moderators who can handle any problems with forum violations. If you have something to report, then do that. Otherwise it comes across as schoolyard bullying.
