Respectfully disagree.

Nice pix means that at least somebody bothered looking, and is more encouraging than no response at all. And we should encourage people to use the equipment, right?

I think 'nice!' can get to be a lazy rubber stamp response to any photo. It's not that hard to put something specific to the photo into the response, even a brief comment. In fact I go out of my way to avoid using the word 'nice' in any comment on a photo.

I'd rather get one or two useful comments on a posted photo than three times that many 'nice!' comments.
