    No one better criticize ME, because I'm better than everyone. :-P

    Nobody censored you. Your entire problem seems to be that people didn't like your picture and the way it was presented, or see in it what you did. That not only seems to be criticism, but could be considered useful criticism.

    I saw a thread elsewhere that showed lots of people think you should only leave positive comments on pictures. That is one of the things I most dislike about Flickr, the barrage of back pats regardless of merit. That sort of mutual admiration society seems pretty useless to me. Hopefully there is some middle ground of civil discourse; more likely to happen here than on most of the net. I think if somebody really steps out of line here, others will come to your defense.

    I have to agree totally with David. And, I have to restate the fact that I have seen just about everything in the poll posted here by someone.

    Much ado about nothing but a mediocre to bad photo.

    I'm just glad sly posted, so if necessary I can stop referring to "she".

    I wrote a post yesterday but deleted it before I posted but the jist was the same as P.E.

    After reading this thread it should occur to anyone that the internet allows free access to anyone, regardless of their problems.

    That's really a harsh comment for someone's work, no matter how much you don't like the image....
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    It's really harsh because the second part somehow got left out,

    I thought this was settled years ago when a member posted a shot of a rather "happy" male appendage.

    I also said IMHO, qualifying it to my own opinion! I am entitled to one, am I not? There are some excellent photos here that I have really given kudos to as well, but Stone asked for opinions in a thread.
