Re: why are "some" people so insulting and rude on this forum?

The people with a real problem here are the poor newbies. They haven't a clue whose advice is bogus and whose is golden. They ask an innocent question, perhaps not well thought out and without searching first, and get handed their heads. Not everyone has years of experience here or with forum life in general and they get regularly savaged here.  They're not familiar with the anonymous b**th**d syndrome so often displayed here.

I've hung out with Nikon, Panny, Oly (a couple times), Sigma and Sony and I see more sheer provocation for the sake of it here than anywhere.  Oly probably comes in second.
