| p.4 #10 · Canon Gets Me Again!! by Piper Mackay |
These ad-hominem attacks by insecure hobbyists are always amusing, but it's interesting that they seldom seem to happen outside the Canon forum...
Sadly, this entire thread has mostly degenerated into an immature set of personal attacks on a person who isn't in the forum - a sort of "discussion" that reminds me of elementary school bullying.
There could be some legitimate issues to discuss relative to her points - and they came up tangentially once or twice - but it seems to be more fun to set her up as a bogeyman (bogeywoman?) for other personal issues.
(In a separate forum, I did write to her about one of the related real issues - related to the general notion of being a "switcher" among brands. She responded in a very reasoned way, though I don't agree with her. Contrary to a lot of the fantasies in this forum, she is a talented and well-regarded photographer, and many of the put-downs here are more embarrassing for the poster and, unfortunately, for all who are seen to associate themselves with this sort of stuff. For many, this thread provides ample confirmation of the most negative generalizations about photo forum people.)
