not among us, but we have a lot of TROLL trashing m43 from other forum

There isn't many discord like Olympus vs Panasonic.  But we have no Shortage of dSLR trolls trashing m43 left and right here.

We, m43 users don't got to canon or nikon forum to trash their DSLR, but many DSLR shooter deem appropriate to come here and trash the placed.

As Aleo (mod) has pointed out, this is the only dpr forum with four moderators to keep peace.

I can't say for others, just for myself:

Today I'm more tolerable to NEX trolls as well as to all DSLR trolls. Once M43 became well established, I have no reason to fight "perpetrators" and "trespassers"

But, I have to admit there are lots of bitterness between Oly and Pana users. I think  that phenomena can be explained by the fact how much they do have in common.

And the day of the week, and the tide flow, and the weather, and about 750,000 other variables...

I stand with my feet planted squarely in BOTH the 4/3 and the m43 groups, and there are slippery slopes in BOTH camps.

There are "My choice is the only choice"  whack jobs in every brand group.

Mean spirited posts come from the whack jobs all the time... Skip over them, or ignore them.

just in case of any misunderstandings and a general lack of humour show at times, this is a joke, no m4/3rds image or equipment was damaged in the making of this joke, with the way things are going on the forums i thought it best to point this out or my post will undoubtedly go astray

There is an absolute lack of reciprocity with 1022 which is appalling. No one can event *mention* there m4/3 without being informed upon and banned. Threads have been deleted over and over.

By comparison, after the basic trolls have been kept at bay, I welcome this being a hospitable forum, where other brands can be discussed in relation to m4/3.

This means that people feel more secure about chosing m4/3. Having another format next to it is or was quite common.

You're kidding... I come back here as there is some useful info from time-to-time, but this is without doubt the nastiest forum I hang out in... try posting some pics with shallow DoF and see what happens... (not that I have, but seen others looking for helpful comments get nuked...) or suggesting m43 isn't the one true perfect camera format...

But for those helpful and kind souls that hang out here I have all the time in the World...

(Tho maybe I just hang out in really super-nice places the rest of the time.)

This forum is different then it was 2 years ago when I first srarted cooming on.  It was like the wild west.  The amount of trolls was crazzy.  It was a lot more entertaining because you never knew what would be said next.  I guess M4/3 is now all grown up.

I wouldn't go that far.  I think that any word of dissent against something specific (starts with a 'P') just merits a ban and random post deleting without any reason given.

Just see how long this one lasts.

There's the occasional quibble or fanboy clashing, but 1041 is, for the most part, free of the angst and gloom that seem to be hanging over some of the other forums right now.

There really isn't a great deal to fuss about, other than what the Panny 150 F2.8 will sell for, or when the new OMD body with PDAF on sensor will be out.

Yes not among us (almost), and I am glad about that, but trolls like to make "attacks" sometimes, I think this will happen more as the Micro 4/3 has more and more addicted's, also it is one of the forums with more movement. That is why we have 4 Mod's. I guess there are another one with the same number of moderators, have to check that.

It is a good forum overall, people here are helpful and give good advice's, at least the usual users and older ones.

One thing we must do is not feed trolling and provocations. Just hit the complain wisely and we moderators will see better what is happening, we can not be here all the time and that helps.
