It is obvious now that it was a safe place away from the doings here and I suspect that some of these members are regretting the loss and seeing the mess that has become of the forum.

Yes, it was a safe place, but that should not have been an issue.  All of the forums should be a safe place.  That is why moderators were appointed in the first place.

Our original thread began before there was an SP forum.   It was not created to provide a safe place, but to provide a place where SP could be shared and discussed.  Because of Peter Dumont's leadership, it grew from that into a virtual community.   We even have a whole life together outside of dpr because of our common interests and experience, and because we like and respect each other.

Its a disgrace and has been used as a weapon to suit a personal feud.

Yes, but to call it a feud is to mischaracterize a documented pattern of behavior by one party that has been going on for many years on many different discussion sites, most of which have nothing to do with photography.   It's easy to find on google.   Whether it's his home town, or ed-wars on Wikipedia, or all kinds of different discussion group areas, which he monitors full time in his home of perpetual night, or other forums in dpr, the same behaviors and reactions from others pop up time and again.   You have to say one thing for our friend, he treats everyone exactly alike.  And the reactions throughout the Internet have been remarkably similar.

The threaded view debate should have been a recommendation and not voiced as a rule. Fad is sometimes his own worst enemy and some of you should have helped guide him.

You're falling into a trap here.   There was no 'debate.'   If you had posted and said:  'Why do you say we should always post in threaded view.'  And then one of the senior members would reply.  And you might say, but it's theoretically possible to do this in flat view.  And then another senior member might point out that that had never worked in the past, in our common experience.   Well, that would be a debate.   What happened had nothing to do debate.   Debate has always been welcomed.  What happened was disruption, not debate.

Where are the members, where are you? You are just as bad by leaving this to happen and now you have other picking away at you.

Stand up for yourselves. Get the exchange going again. Get fad in there and be street photographers.

revenge on another member has been applied here under the guise of something else, everyone here is affected.

The dpr administration is soon to be involved.
