    I think he'd get a kick out of it! Oh wait, that's more violence!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I suggest a new thread- "Would you discreetly wag your index finger at Bruce Gilden from a respectful distance?"

    Exactly!
    Isn't the incitement to killing innocent thread a federal offence?

    As soon as someone raises his or her hand and makes it clear they don't want to be photographed, I stop right there.
    If someone shoves a camera in my face, I think my reaction would be to grab the hard metal/plastic object and either shove it away from
    my face, or pull it toward me.
    There was a woman in Little Rock who was doing this sort of thing, and I followed her for a while, taking many photos of her at work.
    She got offended and told me to shove off... in far ruder words. I grinned and kept snapping until she left in a huff.

    I wouldn't go passing laws or using other types of force to tell folks how to behave, but don't be surprised if a rude photographer gets a little of
    her own medicine from time to time.

    I almost spit my tea out at the screen when I read this... LOL

    I, on the other hand don't agree that this thread should be deleted or retitled, it provides interesting conversation on the topic of street photography, and some of the confrontational aspects of it, and proof on how almost everyone on this thread would NOT resort to actual violence. Free speech, and interesting thread topics are what moves people in this forum to converse. To have to stifle valid topics hurts the community, and deters the next person from speaking his voice, and which may lead to all following suit under the air of political correctness.

    I wouldn't punch Bruce Gilden but I would punch with a vengeance any Bruce Gilden wannabe. The guy started the whole "ninja street photography" genre which i really hate.
