Why is photography now considered a terrorist act?

These forums should be ample evidence why that is happening.

Hardly a day goes by without a suicide troll blowing up another perfectly innocent thread.

Valid trains of thought are derailed on a regular basis when an IIF (improvised irrelevant feature) is remotely detonated in their path.

Back in the old days, it was just two superpowers dominating the landscape, and all was relatively peaceful. But, since the fall of the film curtain (and yes, it was the second curtain), the fringe nations have become more prominent, and the global photography scene has gone to increasing numbers of smaller, more diverse conflicts. At the same time, technology advances have made the weapons available to the terrorists far more complex and destructive, with the addition of electronic specs.

The industry has tried to combat this rampant terrorism, but the terrorists just use those methods against their creators.

The makers tried stealth, with cell phone cams and mirrorless, but the crafty terrorists spotted the spec sheet. Adhering to ancient concepts, one group of terrorists attack the new designs at every opportunity.

It has become so bad that even just going out in public with a camera could be considered a terrorist act, if you aren't using the 'correct' system.

Will this never end? Will the technology that has elevated the art to new levels be its undoing, as the camera terrorists use the discontent among the various owners to lure in new recruits?
