Re: When will the "equivelance" torture end.

It comes in two very different forms, one in a tin, and the other by way of relentless ear bashing.

One you can choose to eat, the other, is forced down your throat, and if you don't accept it as being correct you are some kind of heretic. Either way, the topic does absolutely nothing to improve one's photographic abilities, and therefore should be rightly filed under "Useless Information."

The preachers of this grossly booring and somewhat dubious theory have never once suggested how acknowledgement will help any of us achieve greatness, therefore IMHO their relentless ear bashing is far less useful than having "a hip pocket added to a singlet" or even owning a "left handed ring spanner".

The stuff in a tin is called SPAM. Maybe the subject of this relentless attack to which we are constantly subjected could be also.

The tenor of this thread is much like elementary school children on the playground. Children, it seems, will fight on the playground, "grow up", then fight on a forum giving so many others a taste of the torture all over again. I do not remember that in those days (when I can remember those days) the fights were over equivalency, but whatever it was, this thread does remind me that the more times change, the more things stay the same.  It is possible to be a kid again.
