Thread: I'm pretty much done here...

  1. #1

    I'm pretty much done here...

    Ventured on to this forum back in 2008 and returned for a short time in 2012, 2013.. only to discover this forum which was once a good place to share now has become a place of established individuals with an agenda who bicker and fight for the sake of ?

    My initial intent to return was with the idea of helping others and sharing the image making process, instead, LFF parts of LFF has become semi hostel for those who many see things differently.

    I think that's an over generalization.

    Good luck with your photography. Keep buying film.

    I once stayed overnight at the semi hostel when I was younger. Not a good place to do photography.

    What he said.

    I see the same thing on other special interest forums. People show up expecting, I don't really know but it seems like an oasis of kindness and benevolence, and find some of that and some nastiness and generally just people behaving like people. Ok, a little worse, as humans tend to be less civil dealing with text on a screen than dealing with someone in person. Somehow this surprises folks. This is actually one of the nicer places I hang out, but I pretty much expect the bad with the good.

    Really? It was a joke based on a misspelling, or usage mistake (very possibly caused by auto correct.) It may not be your taste in humor but many people try to lighten serious moods with humor. It's human. So are the people behind posts. We won't like them all and all of them won't like us or see things the same way. Some will say nasty things (which that wasn't.) It's life. It's no different online.

    It's not good that some one wants to leave.
    It's probably my fault
    Why don't you stick around and look at the sunny side.

    There is an old saying that is apt for photographers.

    Where there is light there is shadow.

    Explaining why the small minority of those who do that behave the way they do is beyond me and off the topic of large format photography. However, they are a small minority of those visiting, if not posting. It has always been that way here. If you and others interested in making useful contributions to the community leave as a result, the abrasive, argumentative, irrelevant people will have "won." Don't let them do that.

    I appreciate your posts and suggest you continue making them, shunning the trolls at all times. It's only when paid attention that they continue degrading this forum.

    Given that we have no knowledge of whether the OP is a native English speaker, it was a rude, obnoxious joke. Juvenile at best, like so many of the "jokes" one finds here.

    I'd be less certain about the motivation than you appear to be.

    I'm less certain about that than you are.
