Sorry mate, that was me. My tongue-in-cheek response was intended to point out that we all think (and occasionally say) offensive things and have our own intolerances and snobbishness about other people and practices. I really don't think the non-croppers and rebate revealers are offensive and there are plenty of other posts on APUG where this has been batted back and forth. I won't repeat my views here other than to say I don't understand why "the picture" must always be forced into an arbitrary aspect ratio?
By all means we should take our photography seriously(even very seriously) but not ourselves too seriously!
