    When was the last time Brian posted a notice that he has put something new on his site or advertised it in anyway besides his signature? If you are going to complain about a signature have a website there are a whole bunch of them here.

    Steve. How about posting direct links so we do not have to wade through your sites. It would cause you a lot less stress.

    Brian has a link as his signature, I have never seen him advertise here. OTOH he has been a valuable member of this forum and has gone beyond the call of duty to help Sean in many APUG ventures (even if he is grumpy at times ). I cannot say the same for Simmons. Rarely do we see a helpful answer from Simmons unless it involves shilling his rags.

    We have just seen Sean do miracles to keep this forum going and I think it is very unbecoming to use it for free advertising without providing any support. This forum has a section for articles, if Simmons wants to post an article, even if it is about a miniature camera, I will be the first one to say thank you, but as it is, this is just one more abuse of these forum of which he is well known in this and other forums.

    I post all the time without making any mention of my magazines. Jorge is a known troll and loves to incite a fight. He has said so publcally and privately.

    If you go to the Free Articles section of our sites (both View Camera and Camerarts) you wil see many articles. If I post a link to only one people may miss the others.

    There are some people who do not want others to know of another site that has free info.

    Sorry, but www.viewcamera and www.cameraarts.com have free info for anyone.

    Jorge will almost certainly come on and make another trolling remark. Lets see what he says.

    Nope sorry, of all the 141 posts you have made here, all have to do with your rags or conference, only a few are in response to a question without you mentioning your rags. It is here for everbody to see and check.
    Once again you use this post to mention your rags and the supposedly free stuff, which BTW is so old and outdated it is not even relevant anymore but to the most beguinner.

    My "troll" was in response to your attack to Brian, who is a valuable member of this forum, unlike you. BTW, many preffer my "trolls" to your advertising and taking adavantage of this site.

    How can a review of a brand new camera be so old as to be useless? How can a report from Photokina, which is going on at this moment, be so old as to be useless? This will also be posted in the next few hours

    There are new people coming to large format all of the time and the articles on the VC site are timeless. Tray processing is tray processing, etc., etc.

    My point about Brian's post was that it dd not include any info about the posted topic.

    Jorge will continue to make inaccurate posts to try and discredit me. I will stand on my record as publisher of View Camera for 16 years and CameraArts for the last 6-7.

    If Jorge thinks he can match this record let him show something comparable.

    Is the review free? or is it only for subscribers? if free, why not provide a direct link instead of using only your main web site and force people to have to see all the site and the subscription offererings? If you call inaccurate agreeing with Brian that your post is SPAM, then, yep it is inaccurate.

    As to discrediting you, I dont need to do that, you do that to yourself all on your own.

    Actually, I believe it did. In my view, your original post was spam. If you don't understand what spam is, look it up on www.dictionary.com (hint, I'm not talking about the meat)

    It is in the Free Section as I have previously said. You are so anxious to start a fight you don't take the time to read whatI have said. I have also repeatedly explained that I do not give a direct linkto just one article as this would not allow people to see the other articles in the same section. I have answered this many times.

    My post was only spam to people who are trying to control the availability of free info for others. Others might be interested in reading abut the F6 and the additional report from Photokina. There are also other articles in that section that might be of interest to people. Why not let folks see for themselves and make their own decision?

    There are some people who do not want others to know of another site that has free info.
    This site encourages the sharing of info within the community, but the sharing of info and spam are two different things. How can one tell the difference? Usually by getting to know the member and how they participate within the site determines if it is spam or not. For example Brian may have a link in his signature but he has never tried to promote his site. Brian often posts links to his ebay auctions in the for sale forum, and he then donates a percentage to apug if the items sell (which he doesn't have to do). And Brian is very active in the apug forum community in a positive way, also contributing his time to help me out if I need an extra hand. It's safe to say if a member like Brian posts a link for any reason it's not spam..
