You might be able to type 100wpm, but I wish you would learn the difference between you're and your, you're always typing your when you mean you're.
LOL + 100000000
That also goes for everyone who does the same.
Yeah, I know I have that problem. Bad habit I formed nearly two decades ago. Try breaking a habit that old, especially when you type like the wind. You don't actually think about the words your typing...the majority of them are automatically placed onto the screen by your hands through procedural memory.
Hmm... Explains a lot.
Has the thread officially degraded in to a grammar thread. If so I need to start running my posts through spell and grammar check in word.
Not really, but when miscommunication, misunderstandings, and hyper over analysis is all mixed in with the emotions people show here it helps if those that do actually have English as a first language and wish to be understood were a bit better at basic communication. I have my faults too, as well as many spelling and punctuation errors, and I am often misunderstood because of it. If we all try a little harder to write what we actually mean in a way that is grammatically correct and less prone to misinterpretation the temperature might lower somewhat, which I think would be a good thing.
I agree. Honestly, when I'm not whipping out 5000 words per post, I do try to pay attention to my old bad habits. It's not like I'm intentionally trying to be confusing.
Yes, in this day and age there is still a reasonable correlation between quantity and quality, but emotions and enthusiasm tend to run away with us, they inflate the quantity thus lowering the quality.
The funny thing is so much of this repeated antagonism could be so easily "proven" one way or another. I am a results guy, I am not overly interested in the tech of the gear though it can be interesting as a diversion, I am interested in the physics of photography, perspective and how that interacts with focal length and format size, I am also interested in system capabilities, like the RT flash system and what it can do with what camera etc as well as AF customization, for instance, but most importantly I want images, I am a sight driven animal and most photographers are.
Were I a mod I'd lay down the law, I'd ban (as an example) "DR" posts from Jrista and Dave Taylor until they posted their own comparison RAW files for everybody to see. If Dave wants us to believe there is little difference via his step wedge then post them, if Jon thinks there is >2 stops of DR then post the RAW files and prove it. If Dave wants to point out that is not "DR" but "editing latitude" then let him post the post processing steps he took to those linked RAW files, easy!
I have posted hundreds of images and several videos here, almost all of them have been illustrative images that reinforce my point. We can, and will, argue forever but it will never illustrate our belief like a couple of RAW files will.
In brief, we could cut through 95% of the bullsh!t here if we had a three post and prove it moratorium, you can say what you like for three posts, after that prove it with RAW images illustrative images and any post steps.
