Getting them into the "fold" is the best way to teach and expand their minds a little.

Frankly, I don't see the relation of this crazy lady picking on our PE and Lomography.

Lomography is about shooting expired/iffy film, on the fly (more or less to capture a moment) with dodgy cameras, creating unexpected effects from the dodgy optics, light leaks and/or from processing the dodgy film.
- It's just an art-form (hipster art some may say).

The crazy and angry lady in the thread in question was just your average internet passive-agressive weirdo, kind of unfair making her a representative of a whole new generation of photographers.

Besides, that thread should have been moved to alternative processing, where APUG'ers often try out processing film in everything from potatoes to Ketchup
