    Re: LF Clarification

    The bottom line is this forum allows discussion of all format. Quite ironic really, it's just about which sub-forum you post in. I don't have a problem with that but there's very blurred edges and it needs give and take from members and moderators.

    my God, does this mean if I post a 35mm picture in an LF image forum, someone will get pregnant?

    Your post would be an excellent rebuttal if I was saying "no rules for anything!"

    I am not however. I am just asking if people think we needed this particular rule.

    The purpose of rules is obviously to prevent unwanted consequences, as you point out.

    The question I'm asking, is are the consequences this particular rule prevents actually a bad consequence? If they are, is it worse than the additional consequences the existence of the rule bring into being?

    The fact that a rule is needed or appropriate in one situation is an extremely poor argument for the idea that any rule must therefore be good.

    Wish I'd seen this before I posted.

    Its a much better reply than mine was.

    And I might have added:

    "Yes it does. And if you post a shot from an iphone she'll have twins!"

    Yes, and advise your young daughters to keep their shutters closed and never overexpose. They don't want anything getting past those apertures before the appropriate time for exposure and development.

    Really, the whole concept of this forum from its conception is all about LARGE FORMAT photography. And APUG... is all about ANALOG photography. Both of these forums guard and moderate those concepts appropriately. Otherwise, EVERYONE'S daughters will become pregnant from total lack of respect for the RULES.

    LF Clarification

    With respect to my colleague, this has already been deeply discussed and a matter of much debate, with the general membership and among several combinations of moderators. We needed the rule because lacking it was causing forum drift that was being aggressively promoted or bitterly resisted by some. The notion that we didn't need this clarification defies what we were experiencing at the time, and have not experienced since to nearly the same degree. Let's not relitigate it.

    True statement! Someone is getting pregnant RIGHT NOW, and NOW, NOW, NOW... so whatever you do, someone will get pregnant.

    Agreed. This ship has sailed and we are in the fair wind IMHO.

    >> Sounds like it's time to take all the round II comments back to the bat-cave, make sure we've fully digested them, and then report back the plan. Thanks, and stay tuned (26-Jul-2015, 01:24).

    Question:

    Since this Thread is also speaking about 'LF Clarification'...

    I was just wondering...
    Are Batman and Robin still all 'Huddled Up' in the Batcave -- Three (3) Months later?

    Or... Did I perhaps just miss the 'Updated' Plan?
    Thank-you! Just curious...

    Best regards, -Tim.
