I have no objection to someone starting a topic that reads "Test shot from 17mm lens" and I would expect that the photo would be such that you could learn something about the technical quality of the lens but that the photo wouldn't be an especially good photo from a composition perspective, and I'm totally OK with that.

But on the other hand, this forum also gets a topics with titles like "Great photos from my vacation!" and then I expect to see photos that are at least as good as what people post on Instagram, and instead I usually see dreck.

They're happy for what they can manage to do.

You on the other hand are miserably intolerant of those with lesser skills and/or ambitions.

You always make your arguments out to be everyone else is deluded in one way or another.   But the truth is, it's the other way around.
