    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.

    Write me the check, but make it $4,000, I'll do all the work, I'll buy a Chamonix 8x10 and I'll even take the pictures for you!!
