That's because DP Review ZAPPED IT.

I went through your entire posting history and could not find a single post in which you ask for focusing help. I could not find anyone who belittled you. Actually, your posting history is very calm.

I then spot checked a lot of thread yous participated in. Again, I couldn't find one response to you that was rude and condescending. I then used a Google forum search to search for any posts with "bbbinohio focusing D800" Not a single result.

Yet, you've accused and blocked 24 "masters" for unspecified and undocumented reasons in what amounts to a shouted rant.

So, instead of blindly accusing people, why don't you reference the posts in which this happened and let us judge? Or are you just having a bad day?

When I got my new D800e I took a few shots and was shocked how out of focus the images were.

When I posted them on this forum and asked for help, several of the most arrogant members told me that I was just another stupid idiot who did not deserve to be on this forum. That I did not know anything about photography and that I should learn to read my owners manual before I opened my mouth and made an obvious fool of myself.

So I just did my best to ignore them and sent my camera into Nikon for focusing issues anyway. Well, to all you "Masters of Photography" here is what Nikon Customer Service found...

THE AUTO FOCUS OPERATION NEEDED ADJUSTMENT

THE AUTO FOCUS UNIT WAS OUT OF ADJUSTMENT

THE MIRROR ANGLE WAS OUT OF ALIGNMENT AND NEEDED ADJUSTING.

I really have nothing left to say... except that I am glad you found the need to criticize me, because it allowed me to block 24 "Masters of Photography", and this forum has been a much nicer place for me to be ever since.

Thanks!

Why you would waste your time trying to prove someone wrong is beyond me.  But if you must know, it got so bad, so demeaning, so condescending, so ugly, that DPReview ZAPPED the entire thread as being "Not on Topic".

Now why don't you try believing in people, encouraging other members, instead of trying to find a reason to start an argument.
