Personally I think the problem is moderators.

Those guys take their assignment to seriously.

In another forum posting complaints about Pentax reviews
In reply to Heie2, 6 months ago

Of course they take it down!   It is spamming another forum with this silliness...
Look at me, Look at me...  I own Pentax and nobody treats me fair.   
After 10 years on this forum and owning Pentax, the need to have our choice legitimized by others still makes me laugh.  
Anyone who wanted the K3 probably already has it.  Anyone sitting on the fence waiting for a DPR review is probably not going to buy it.   And no review is going to get people to up and change systems, unless they got money out the asp...  
And all DPR is going to get after the review is more "But what about this, why didn't you test it this way"  Bla bla bla
go take some photo

The problem is that until a few days ago, there was basically no attention given to Pentax-related threads in the feedback forum. I waited three months for a simple response.

No amount of perceived entitlement . . . can make DPR do anything.  Why not give it a break and go enjoy actual photography?

You disagree with my signature? You think entitlement should trump expertise?

Ok sorry about that, didn't mean to make it personal. I take it back. If you would like and would do likewise from your reply I will try to delete my comment.

EDIT: Sorry, it won't let me withdraw or edit that post. It's been more than 5 minutes apparently.

EDIT: So I complained about my own post. Maybe a mod will delete it.

Now that is cool .

I wondered when I did it how often that's happened before -- someone complaining about their own post. Maybe a first for the respective mod and they get a chuckle? Hope I don't get banned! :-o

Maybe they'll see it as everyone makes mistakes.

Have a nice weekend everyone.

Matt

Definitely not a first, I've had to complain about "my own" posts a couple times after my wife thought it would be funny to post angry nonsense on here when I was sleeping/not looking. Also once when I was super drunk and forgot what point I was trying to make while I was writing a post.

Ah, the early days.

I ufcking hate censorship. The greatest gift a human can have in the world is freedom, and censorship is the opposite. One of the greatest systems of censorship was under this guy

and we know what he was doing. Like my pet monkey used to say, a primate with nothing to hide hides nothing.

Oh Matt, that's priceless An honest to goodness Godwin's law. Good call man!

Someone call over a mod. It's time to pack up, leave and close the thread. Don't forget to turn off the lights on the way out!
