42?

Spelling is continually evolving - you just have to look at the whole -ize to -ise debate.  But if people want to pedantic, we should have an agreed resource to refer to.  Given the international nature of this site, I suggest the UN's editorial guide (This is how 95% of the world spells English anyway): -

http://dd.dgacm.org/editorialmanual/ed-guidelines/style/spelling.htm

On to more serious matters - which topic was it?  I've no problem with topics or posts being removed (in fact, I think that's a prudent policy of a well run site), but members could be given 15 mins notice that a topic is about to be removed so that we can at least see what everyone's talking about.

If you set the bar to too high you will just end up with a bunch of smart ass's asses.

Or worse... grammar Nazis.  :P
LOL!

Lovely to meet an assassin with a sense of humor :)

At least you die laughing...

What happens to the people who don't meet the minimum IQ? Do they have to go post on Nikon sites?

I thought it was obvious, we become admins :(

Brilliant! But unfortunately too high. Almost nobody would make the cut...

Gary,

I have nothing but tremendous admiration for anyone who can speak multiple languages. You speak at least 4: Eagle, Coyote, Mountain Lion, and English. So I wouldn't sweat an occasional  lapse in the Queen's proper English (just don't leave out any "u's" as recently illustrated by Neuro's post) ;D

Nobody got 42 ?!?!?!

So long and thanks for all the fish !!!!

I still show up here... but I gotta say... these post like, "1DX no fix, broken now need 600mmL", "What's a cheap way to protect a camera from the rain?" or "The DR conundrum..." have really taken a troll toll here.

I bailed after the 5D3 hype/release/tear down... signed up again after a few months hoping for the best. So far... meh.

42....I immediately knew the meaning, but didn't post. For those who don't know, here is a quote from Wikipedia...

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
The number 42 is, in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, "The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything", calculated by an enormous supercomputer over a period of 7.5 million years. Unfortunately no one knows what the question is. Thus, to calculate the Ultimate Question, a special computer the size of a small planet and using organic components was created and named "Earth". This appeared first in the radio play and later in the novelization of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The fourth book in the series, the novel So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish, contains 42 chapters. According to the novel Mostly Harmless, 42 is the street address of Stavromula Beta. In 1994 Adams created the 42 Puzzle, a game based on the number 42.

Why 'stop' @2.8.   That's not fair '2' those more 'open-minded' or those who have had 1.2 many cocktails.  ;)
Careful with those, corner sharpness will deteriorate, and you can expect increased vignetting
Only if you have a full frame! Some of us have a more slender boy type  ;)
Yes! Me 2 I too have the reach advantage. Although sometimes I wonder if I'm just narrow minded, or have tunnel vision.    :o

Me thinks those who consider "42" the answer would also tend to use "colour" and "favour".  It solves all the world's problems.

And the number 42 equates to the word "MATH" when adding up their lethers in the alfabet ..a=1,b=2,...etc..

If your on the level of test chart & DR shooting amoeba, that's good enough.
