    My...what a kind and thoughtful offer Stone. You will give me some time to think it over won't you? Like a few years.

    take as long as you need by that point perhaps I'll already have an 8x10 so I'll use the money toward a 20x24 field camera

    Calling it lame is rude and inconsiderate. This has happened before and the volunteers purchased replacement hardware, then recovered virtually all of what was in the database. I think we can look forward to a similar outcome this time. I'd call that extraordinarily wonderful. Politeness and gratitude, especially to Brian Reid

    who provides the server, are in order, not criticism.
    I absolutely have to agree with Mr. Santamaura, and echo his response to Mr. Sawyer's pointed and rudely critical comment.

    The Large Format Photography forum is generously provided by QT Luong, and moderated by a great group of VOLUNTEERS WHO GET PAID NOTHING for their work. Additionally, the servers and webhosting provided, and managed, by Mr. Reid are there at his expense.

    So Mr. Sawyer, even though I respect your right to speak freely, I must take exception to your choosing to be so critical of such a great resource. I would invite you to set out on your own, and create such a forum.

    That is if you feel you can do a better job, using the same resources.

    Go ahead.

    Show us how much better you can be at it.
    What?

    I bet they had to shut down the database to find out who the person *really* is who sold that Chamonix F1 and was an utter jerk to those who replied to his ad.....

    Well... since I was banned from LFPI a couple years ago it doesn't make much difference to me. I suggest you don't disagree with a particular moderator there... no names.
