sure, civility is -- as a general rule -- the way to go, but DZH (one of the most prolific posters of photos on aB) was reacting to someone who called out his considerable and time-consuming work as "irrelevant" and "petty wankery."Wow, unnecessarily harsh.
By the way, I like all of the pictures people post, whether or not they cater to my own specific interests. Keep them coming, but let's try to be civil when it comes to criticism.
if i added as much to the overall aB image gallery as DZH and someone demeaned my efforts similarly, i'd be pissed, as well.
