Site Information / Re: Should karma remain on the forum?

Maybe it'd be appropriate to ask the administrators about the level of customization that they can implement. If the code that supports the site is an off-the-shelf package there might not be options beyond karma/no karma.

 ??? This is all I've posted this week and I've collected 3 more minuses... It's the Heinz Doofenshmirtz avatar, isn't it? Three more smites and I'll have to think about switching over to a more positive image...

Awesome!  But you forgot:

Question 11:  Why does every $100 cellphone, kids game and even television set have BUILT-IN Wifi, GPS, can-opener and shoe-polisher, yet a $7000 camera has only limited, expensive,  clunky, one-at-a-time add-ons?

Answer 11:  You are obviously not a serious photographer.
Answer 11a: You are obviously an Apple fanbois.
Answer 11b: How dare you question Canon? 27 Smites for you!

here's a plus to help balance you out... ;D

Karma Karma Karma Chameleon it comes and goes, from where who know oh oh ohs
must...resist...temptation...to...smite!!  :P

LOL.... +1 for the Karma Chameleon

Yeah, I gave him a +1 for that too but received  +1/-2.   From this valuable Karmic feedback I deduce that most CR posters are also Culture Club fans and that I must never, ever speak ill of Boy George on these pages. :o

Henry's has stock available for $1999.99 CDN. At today's rate that would work out to $1962 US.

EOS Bodies / Re: Do you REALLY need a new camera?
« on: January 05, 2012, 11:09:49 AM »
You can build a house with a hammer and handsaw. Do you really NEED the latest Bosch or Dewalt pro-tools? The whole boating industry is built on convincing owners that all of their problems would be solved if they had a hull just TWO feet longer. The ski industry promises that you'll turn easier, go faster and have more fun if you buy the latest Head or Rossi equipment...  Don't rain on everyone's parade by talking about "need".   ;D

BTW, completely off-topic but is "There is no spoon" a Klosterman quote?

Quick, somebody smite me for voting without carefully reading all the options

Rather, I applaud you for voting like a typical American...   :-X
The site is owned by a Canuck, therefore no vote is legal unless it's published in both official languages... bien sur.

It's interesting to consider all the different directions this thread has taken. 

Words are flexible in the English language. Nobody practices medicine as a hobby, so "doctor" has a fairly uniform meaning. Yet, one can be a doctor of philosophy or recieve an honorary doctorate. Again, there are no hobby-barristers (that I know of), so we all have a fixed idea of what someone calling himself a lawyer does as his day job.

Drift over to an activity that can be performed recreationally and we have "pilot" who may only fly Cessnas and possess a PPL. Yet, fighter pilots, commercial pilots and airline pilots are not offended when someone calls them simply "pilot" despite the years of additional training and higher graduation of licencing.

I am likely the worst, least-knowledgeable photographer on this site. Yet, because I share a passion for photography and have carried a camera around in one form or another since acquiring my Kodak X15 in 1972, I have no problem describing myself with the term.

Now, others might not share my interpretation....    ;)

I just gave each of you a +1.

Thanks, but I also collected 2 more smites for expressing that opinion.   :(
