I didn't pay what I paid to chat with plebs or view their photography. End of story.

!!!! Is this your own personal view?

Not really. It was what I distilled from the op. Of course I don't mind chatting with plebs. Well, at least until my bags will check themselves. Can't wait for that!

The sad fact of photography and wealth is that wealthy photographers have historically been responsible for 0.0% of great photography. I challenge posters to prove otherwise.

What this forum provides is a venue for generally polite photo hobbyists who are more enthusiastic than critical to motivate each other with a gentle thumbs up. As roel and others have shown, it doesn't take a red dot or a large budget to have the "right" attitude.

Lastly, this spirit is not at all universally apparent in ever leica owner. I was given an M6 as a first camera in third grade and that genteel leica spirit still hasn't rubbed off on me!

I am relieved to read that this was not your opinion! And- I can understand how the originalpost could be distilled to this sentiment.

The answer is simple: don't open, read, and participate in the threads posted with "less than pure" equipment.
