    Nice is over rated. Bah humbug. Bunch-a-whippersnappers always complainin' about somethin', expectin' everybody to be nice to 'em. Ptui! Who needs it?



    It seems a pretty nice place to me. Occasionally people get into tiffs but that's been true on every web forum I've ever been on. It's no worse over there than most and better than many.

    Well you can't, but it's pretty easy to cut down 8x10. One whack down the middle makes two 5x8s and then cut an inch off the long end. (Or doesn't Shenhoa or someone make a 5x8 camera for just that reason?)

    Oh, don't get me wrong. The vast majority of the membership there are very friendly and often helpful. There are just a handful of "grumpy old men"(*) who make it unpleasant. (I'm not talking about the open "tiffs". I'm talking about something much more subtle. There are a few who are constantly..well, "Grumpy"). Maybe I am just too much of an idealist but, I really do think it would be / could be a better place if just a few of the old timers would tone it down a bit...maybe not take themselves and everything quite so serious. I've kinda just come to accept that the few bad actors are who they are and leave it at that. Most of the time, they live on my ignore list.


    (*) understand that "grumpy old men" is a very polite way of saying something else.

    I have most of the "GOM" on ignore. It made LFF much more pleasant. In all honesty once Frank Petronio got banned LFF just wasn't all that fun anymore so now I might drop in once a month. Gee I wonder if they are all a-twitter about Bieber's arrest.
