When I visit an art gallery i would have serious reservations taking advice from someone about technique and equipment if I had no idea of what their own abilities were. I would happily listen to their views on their emotional response to the artwork, but that is not what this forum is about.

Well, I wasn’t talking about advice. And neither were you in the post to which I replied. You only mentioned comments, and that you dismiss them in the absence of an online gallery.

I just believe that posters should be free to comment on what they like or don’t like without having to demonstrate a skill level. My fear was that posts like the one I first replied to are only going to make newcomers afraid to comment, while doing nothing at all to deter the folks whose goal it is to stir up trouble.
