    Anyone miss the flame wars?

    We have all been amazingly civil these days. I miss some of the good arguments but not the nastiness that went with it.

    I also don't miss the nastiness, but I have to admit they were entertaining.

    Keep an eye on the TMY thread. It's showing some promise. ;-)

    If you want to get things started, I have some suggestions:

    (1) Ask whether film is really dead or if it isn't, how long it will be around.

    (2) Tell us that you've seen ink jet prints that are indistinguishable from platinum.

    (3) Say, or even remotely suggest, that some ink jet prints might be as "archival" as some traditional darkroom prints.

    (4) Offer something for sale.

    (5) Ask You Know Who to tell us that there's too much emphasis on the science of photography.

    I don't miss flame wars at all. Very distracting. I really appreciate being able to read this forum without running in to a pile of bile. I know that bile doesn't come in piles, but the rhyme was irresistible.

    You're right Brian, there's some sure-fire topics for flame war ignition. Ahem.....

    "Brand X lenses are the best in the world (especially the 135mm APO-Necronomicon). If that isn't obvious to you, you shouldn't be wasting your time (and ours) by taking pictures. You can't take a good picture with a Brand Y or Z. Take them outside and smash them right now....go ahead, I'll wait".

    Ah, OK, now I feel better. :-)

    Miss the flame wars? In a word, no.

    But, we did a CLA on the delete key, just in case. ;-)
