    What a nice forum after...

    A pity I didn't find it last year. So, do people have fun here?

    I'm just so happy to be able to yak about photography without Bob Atkins and Brian Muttershead clamping me down! I'm free! Free at last!

    Why were they clamping you down? Yes this can be a fun place but as it grows I think there is more heated debate, and more instances of flaming but for the most part those who participate regularly are some pretty good folks.

    You know, I don't think I ever posted anything nasty there, but when they started banning people and culling political discussions last year I started the Underground Leica Forum. Photo.net threatened to call the FBI on me for that, since I was "stealing their business". You know, take away the kids, lock us out of the house, send me to SuperMax, register as a cyber-criminal, because a dozen people posted on a forum that lasted six months.

    Of course, I do admit to starting threads like "which gun is most like a Leica?" - which was immensely popular but seemed to rankle the management. Why is it that the most popular threads (500 posts +) are the ones that get deleted? Isn't the idea to generate a lot of traffic and interest?

    Uh-oh. I think the neighborhood just took a dive.

    Seriously, welcome, Frank. I'm surprised you hadn't discovered APUG previously.

    [added] Oh, and I thought the photo of my Sauer .270 with the Leica scope was the best response to the "which gun" question.

    The problem with PN was that it went from a "hand off" forum that had flame wars almost every day, to a forum that would squash anything remotly controversial according to BM or BA. The problem was that neither BM or BA posted guidelines as to what was/was not allowed, so sometimes a good post would be deleted for whatever reason BM or BA had that nobody knew and some definitly bad posts would stay and go on and on and on.

    IMO this was a bad move for them, they ruined their forums which was what I thought might get many of us to subscribe. Given their erratic behavior I stopped posting in PN years ago and have not missed it one bit. Heck I have not even visited the site in about a year.

    As to the wich gun is more like a Leica, definitly a H&K P7 M13....loved that gun...

    I didn't see that discussion, but I've seen a 1895 Krag-J°rgensen with a Leitz scope which bears an uncanny resemblance to some of the Leica prototypes

    Welcome, anyway
