Correct, nearly all of the photography sites i've been apart of had an open critique rule if you posted a photo unless you stated "no critiques" for whatever reason. This is the only forum where the rules are different.Some websites have a policy that all photos are subject to critique. When a subscriber creates an account at them, they agree to that policy. I have no idea what the policy is at the website Barry is referring to. Regardless of the policy, online bullying should never be permitted.
