Unfortunately this is pretty much the case with any large internet forum. There will always be x amount of armchair critics per 100 users. That number is probably lower here than some places but they can still be a highly vocal bunch so seem much larger. If I wasn't admin I'd add every single one to my ignore list but oh well.. I've mentioned in the past everyone here has a choice to HELP traditional photography along and be positive. Many chose to do exactly that and they have my utmost respect. For the others they will criticize everything they can and if they run traditional photography into the ground they will criticize everyone for not doing enough..
