The reason I am more of lurker than poster is because of people's arrogance and intolerance towards others. Not to me personally, but to those with basic questions, entry level skills, varying interests etc. Most people on the boards are friendly and supportive, but there are a lot who aren't.
So my biggest pet peeve is this intolerance. I come to the boards to learn, share my love of the art, etc. Not to hear elitists and people who claim to be experts belittle the less experienced. All the while, their portfolio looks very average. An artist is an artist with a pencil or CAD. The greats didn't have 24 megapixel, auto focusing beasts of cameras. But their work is eternal.
I know I am venting. But, isn't that the reason for the post?
Welcome everyone and share your knowledge. Enjoy photography together. But, don't feed the trolls.
