It's a snakepit, where the most common response to a new person is 'try the search function, idiot.' I rarely even read there anymore, because I'm sick to death of the 'my lens is bigger than your lens' and the 'my flash is better than your flash' stuff. Whoever coined the term measurebator knows that group reaaaal well.

It was a friendly, happy place (like the Cafe is now) populated by some top people like Uncle Frank, Sandi and Jarrell Conley.
I wonder what happened to them...
