Here in Asia it is still commonly called Burma and the people are called Burmese.

Exactly.

As a person that lives in SE Asia, this is definitely true. It really is common to call Myanmar Burma. I have no idea what to call the people other than Burmese.

That's pretty common I think. It will take a generation for the name to change. In Chicago many of the tall buildings have been sold to others who rename them but most Chicagoans still know, and refer to them under their old names. Only out of towners refer to the Sears tower as the Willis tower or the Standard Oil building as the Aon center.

Given some of the comments and attitudes, if I were a new member, and within 4 hours, was being called names, I most likely would just stop coming to the forum. Some folks need to brush up on POTN rules... ;)

Or a little bit thicker skin. :-) but point taken and being a forum owner I agee.

However, I think the comments and sarcastic remarks stem from when someone posts a strong statement that seems to be out of the ordinary, then never comes back to follow up on his original post or reply to questions asked by members.

Oh yea, the fuel is there but I still think that you need to give the benefit of the doubt and give then 24 hours.

However, that said, we are past the waiting period and it is becoming clear that this poster basically came into the room, farted and left quickly. It's looking extremely trollish at this point. OP, don't let us down, come back.

Let me weigh into this debate. Living where I do and spending time each year in the remote north of Laos for a couple of weeks at a time, does take toll on my camera gear. I fly up on a commercial plane then catch public transport buses between major centres. You know the type, those 18 seaters where they cram up to 30 people on board including produce and chickens. I've even see a huge pig on one (no, not my travelling buddy). I'll have a camera around my neck and my camera bag goes under the seat or on my lap.

My Tamron 17-50 looks like a dog's breakfast but works perfectly fine. My 50D has scuffs and dings, and my 20D is no better.

You can cover a lot of territory and do a lot of things in two weeks. The OP didn't elaborate what he was doing in Myanmar, but sure it's possible a camera could look a little second hand if not treated all that well in very remote areas. It only takes a tumble whilst walking (done that). A mate put a great gash on the back of his two month old Nikon D700 getting on a boat on the Mekong. Accidents do happen.

I would think that the OP post would have been more like "I droped my camera a bunch of times and now it looks 5 years old" and not "WTF, this camera sucks. After 2 weeks it looks 5 years old." In the OP there is a strong implication that use was normal.
