Some folks post photos here and ask for comments and criticism. To my way of thinking, those are fair game for anything anybody wants to say. In this case, all the guy said was, "here's some photos." If you find them inconsequential, I see no need for any comment at all.

I'll stick to my original point, which is that if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all. Just because you find somebody's pictures uninteresting doesn't mean you have to jump in with an unsolicited criticism.

I just looked at your gallery, by the way.

Give me a break. If someone posts photos on a public discussion forum, they had better be prepared for comments.
