I'm curious, did Jay say why he left POTN?
I don't know how much we're supposed to say about why people leave the forum. . I know there is a rule that says that we cannot discuss why we leave the forum, but I don't know if that rule, in spirit, also extends to discussing why someone else left.
What I can say is that Jay wasn't crazy about so much emphasis on gear. . I feel the same way.
When people constantly post about bodies and lenses and settings and so forth, it takes so much of the art and creativity and fun out of photography. . Photography shouldn't be about cameras and lenses and shutter speeds and apertures. . Photography should be about photographs and the things that we photograph, not the tools that we use to take the photographs. . This is, after all, a photography forum, not a camera forum.
At least those are my feelings ...... and I think that Jay and I are kindred spirits in this regard. . Problem is, I often get sucked into discussions about the things that don't matter, like gear and settings and ISO and all that, while Jay was strong enough to avoid such nonsense.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
