Cross format talking wouln't be a problem if done respectfully.

And being polite or with good manners doesn't mean respect.

Respect includes that you honor other decision and will to stay in own place.

M4/3 has its own room, it is this.

If someone wants to get cross format talking, that is why "Open Forum" is for. That is the "lobby for all rooms" and it is disrespectful to start preaching about other formats there, but it would be respectful to give a link to other forum where the corresponding format/system discussion is going. And if it is general cross topic one, direct it to open talk.

Think it as religion. Muslims in one of the island, Hinds in their own, Christians in own, Jews at their own and etc.

You don't go to others island to preach how their religion is bad or how it is different from others. No, you stay away from others. You respect their religion, their rules, their manners and ways of life when you visit other islands.

But there is need for a open island where everyone is welcomed. But not to argue, fight and bash. Polite discussion, logical arguments, sharing view points. But not to convert anyone, not to preach own, not to put down others etc.

But there needs to be as well a some small place where people can go to argue, relief themselves, test themselves and others. IT IS LIKE A FIGHT CLUB. There are rules not to kill, not to permanently injure, other than lose face or face, but only in there. What there is, is kept there and not carried over to other places.

And that doesn't exist!

DPR should create a new forum, just for arguments. It is strictly moderated for personal attacks, but the you can within rules are as much you want about is blue dress or white dress, is 245mm² better than x⅔ or is it better to have old brand or new brand, is f/2 a f/2 or does ratio of two element change of third value is changed that ratio doesn't include?

And if someone wants to make remarks about someone, better do it private message or not so at all.

Those discussions, when constructive, are very helpful for a lot of people.

Constructive is never negative, it is always positive. It is never about "this is bad, that is better". It is not never pointing out how something else is better than what someone else has now. It is not about explaining something and stating "but these are just the facts, look it is science"

There is a difference to tell someone how to improve their results, than it is to tell them that the someone else does it better.

Just dreaming ...

Yes, but moderators so not want to make a such dedicated "fight club" forum. So everyone suffers. Themselves too.

Some good thoughts Tommi.

I just beg to differ that we shouldn't stay away from others, as you said, but instead learn to speak to each other with tolerance and respect.

Shouldn't be too difficult, as we are all educated people.

But the premise for this is to accept that nobody holds The Truth, or, saying differently, that everybody's truth is The Truth.
