Hullo, I joined the forum today and have had a look around the site, looks good to me. Quite by accident I came across an old post on DP Review back in 2006. This forum was referred to in most offensive terms......this really surprised me. There was a suggestion that the comments about others photos were very 'soft'. Is this an old chestnut? I would find it a pleasant change if that means members are rather polite and thoughtful when commenting on others pics. Harsh criticism is out of place anywhere, in my view.......sure one should have the right to comment critically and constructively. Some of the rants on other forums seems to go on forever. Hopefully this is a rarer happening here. Interested in any views on this matter.
