Thanks for starting this thread Eyedoc. This has been on my mind for some time, I occasionally pop back hoping it will be back to normal but no it’s all gone a bit Pete Tong hasn’t it 🙁 . Oh well, it was a great site and I’m glad I caught some of the good times – it used to crack me up! For quite a while this was my favourite site, not just because it was hilarious, but mainly because it actually was a really good place for learning, with regulars who had real passion for photography, and did get affronted and vocal about all the dire stuff out there – there needs to be more of this. Thanks to everyone for making this such a great site until the spammers took over. Happy holidays everyone!
