    A really silly response, which just proves my point.

    Sort of like two guys looking at a pretty girl. One wants to take her clothes off and jump her bones and the other one wants to take her clothes off and jump her bones. One just lies about it.

    Hand up, waving madly... That be me Sir.

    That was a lot of my classmates at NESOP and most of the art/photography students when I worked in the darkroom at the University (where I was getting my engineering degree).

    Runs the gamut from boriing to accomplished. The hardest to deal with artistically.


    There is one constant in all these types.

    You stated that the discussion was to be "about art, artistic ability, and artistic integrity". I responded, "show us some, and we'll stop typing about turds".

    Don't take my comment out of context. It was and is a very apt comparison.

    Tim- you're forgetting option #3 - Two guys look at a pretty girl, but decide to jump each others' bones instead.

    This is a photographic forum, not a school toilet wall.
    "When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less."

    "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."

    "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master — that's all."

    Alice was too much puzzled to say anything; so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again.

    "They've a temper, some of them — particularly verbs: they're the proudest — adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs — however, I can manage the whole lot of them! Impenetrability! That's what I say!"

    No, they've stepped up production. At least three per minute.
