Same could be said for street photography, no?  

If the person taking the photos has no idea what that photo is trying to communicate, they might as well just wave it around and press the shutter release. In fact often I think that is how some of the posted photos WERE taken.

There are gorgeous landscapes to be photographed if one know a little bit about composition and lighting. Shooting the shaded side of a mountain will yield a bunch of dark green mush with ANY camera, but people seem to not realize that and snap away.
