That's a very fine misery schtick, Mark...do you give lessons?

I could do a youtube lesson, but my black melancholy outfit is in the wash unfortunately...

Sales would promise anything, Production (creative) would have to deliver and Technical (engineers) would bear the brunt of the lies told by Sales and the wishful thinking of Production.

Tell me abou it, marketing promises it, traffic books it and engineering get stuck with making it work or not.

I remember once being sent out to “assist” a board op who was having trouble setting up a remote at a new mall in Pembroke Pines, the marketing gal decided the best place to set up was in front of a huge fountain facing the food court.

It was a beautiful location to take pictures of but not to broadcast from.

The location was centered in the mall so the poor BO couldn’t get a decent signal from the Marti back to the studio and marketing never thought to order an ISDN to use a CODEC with so that was not an option, so I ended up using two Marti’s one from the mall to the remote van and another from the van to the studio.

Not that it mattered as the noise from the fountain and that of the hard surfaced food court made it impossible to go live and be heard.

Mall management was upset, the talent was upset and the marketing gal was looking for a scapegoat as the remote had to be rebooked, so I quickly filed a report with my boss shoving the whole enchilada back on marketings plate costing the marketing gal her commission on the booking.

Ah yes another lovely day in the annuals of radio…

I've noticed that several people when answering a question on photography related topics, tend to get personal & insult others, just because they disagree with their answers or views. Is this unique to photographers or does it happen in any discussion forum?

A lot of it is alpha maleism.

In the words of Joseph Mind, "meanwhile, Nikon and Canon owners have long been fighting a pointless war of who possesses the best camera. This battle isn't much fought by working pros and artists, but rather by testosterone-driven males who apply a Muscle Car mentality to a simple paint brush and canvas."

I used to be on various automotive forums and people there are immature, childish, rude, and full of trolls that would not be tolerated at a place like this. I love this forum, I have to be on my best behavior but everyone else is too which is great. POTN = higher intellect! :)

A camping/RV forum of which I am a member had a rough time of it in 2004 right around the elections. Emotions ran so high and people got so 'excited' that it was a veritable minefield. There were conversations that had they been held around a real campfire would have resulted in bloodshed. This brought up the 3G rule - no discussion of God, Guns, or Government have been allowed since. The forum is very well moderated now and quite enjoyable, but I think a lot of people were banned or quit in those early days.

There seem to me to be a relatively small number of objectionable posts on this forum. I think the moderators do a wonderful job of keeping things civil.

This place is like masterpiece theater compared to some of the forums I visit, car forums mostly....

I don't call names or that sort of thing but I do love to be sarcastic/joking/witty and sometimes people don't get it. I have a very dry sense of humor. People don't even get it in real life until a few minutes later.....Maybe I'm just not funny?

Anyways, if you look at everything with a pessimistic perspective, you will see responses online that way. I look at everything as one big joke and I end up laughing a LOT.

Welcome to the Internet! ;-)a

Seriously, the behavior is prevalent in most photo forums, not just this one. Believe it or not, this place is very tame compared to some other popular forums.

True, True......

Photography forums are tame compared to sports forums. College football, NFL forums get really heated.

Thats is because, in my less than humble opinion, sports overall attracts a lower intellengence crowd than photography...

When you have a group of people who lack the mastery of the language and cannot fully express themselves frustration raises and grenades get tossed…

Meh. I have noticed that it really does depend upon the sport. Take Dressage, for example, vs Ice Hockey. Or Lacrosse vs Football. Or Gumanstics vs NASCAR.

Funny you say this because for years, racing fans banged on Jeff Gordon precisely because he was from a part of the country where they use complete sentences and can be easily understood.
