stop siding with him and kissing his ass.He has helped me many times with advice on many subjects.... what have you done for me?
I didn't realize you felt such hostility towards me. Do I have to do things for you in order to be treated with common decency? I don't recall disrespecting you, your opinions, or your photography. Sorry if you feel that way.
I feel no hostility towards you and I enjoy reading many of your posts and comments too.
I just wish you and Jrista wouldn't fight.. it detracts from everyone.
Sure seems that way to me, but you and him are old buddies, I guess I can understand that. There are some people that will never get along. I respect some of the work he does, and some of his knowledge, but I don't respect his hatred, anger, immaturity, antagonism, and self righteousness...he is deluded where I am concerned. He keeps claiming I don't know him. I say the same, he doesn't know me. All we know is what we read on here, and from day one (over a year ago) he has been extremely hostile and insulting to me...sending me insulting private messages. Nobody is perfect though. But I will not be called a small and weak man, and then have someone else portray me as the instigator in that exchange (as you did), because I was not. He started the name calling, and he got away with it. The moderators like him, they don't like me. I hope you can understand that. I certainly know you would not tolerate it, if it were directed at you. I refuse to be insulted for simply sharing my own experiences, by someone who has no experience with a product, yet types in caps as if to emphasize his pronouncements as "factual", and anyone who disagrees, is somehow in error. John Rista is not a god.
