The thread from yesterday, RIP teenage Canon Shooter Molhem Barakat killed in Syria age 17, appears locked. I wanted to add that the saying attributed to Burke in it - "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."  - is apocryphal. It doesn't appear in nay of his writings. See: http://tartarus.org/martin/essays/burkequote.html

Just like the 100-400 dust issue.
Very good! +1

I've been offended by people but you just have to let it go...it is hard but you can't convince people who are convinced of their own superiority...don't try...the only one who is hurt is you.  please note I'm not very good at this so do what I say and not what I do. 

If you enjoy reading stuff here stay and ignore that thread.  If you don't then leave...no harm no foul.  There are lots of other photo forums

I've been a Mod on a top cycling forum and I have seen many folks who declare their exit and lurk for the comments until the right one gets under their skin, their thin skin. Then 9/10x they reappear.

It's the internet folks, no one is going to look after your feelings but you. You want touchy feelie? Try Pinterest.

Does the fact that it's Dec 25th today have anything to do with it?  Maybe the OP is sad and not having a good day.

Honestly, if someone can't handle the comparatively benign banter that occurs on this forum, what chance do they have to survive most other forums around the Internet?

I mean... reallyCanonRumors is driving someone away?   ???

I've known people with this attitude before.  Somehow they think that the world is better with them in it and if they threaten to remove themselves, people will flock to beg and plead that they stay.  Except in reality, no one does and they are left to their own imagination to feel the immense need that they expect others to express. 

In other words, take your toys and go home (don't let the mirror hit you in the lens...) and we'll stay here in the CR playground and keep playing.  Enjoy your life as much as you can and be healthy, wealthy and wise.  No hard feelings here but not much sorrow either.  Live long and prosper.   :D
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

I'm confused. What does CR have to do with the conflict in Syria? I read the news report and cant find any sort of a connection between the two. ???

I'm at a loss, I checked logs and saw no hints.  The Mods have their own private area where they post about suspended or banned users, or discuss problem topics.

That famous song "Leaving on a Jet Plane"  (a song written by John Denver in 1966 and most famously recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary) comes to mind...

as I recall the words are:

I'm leaving on a complain
don't know if I'll be back again

What the heck?

Try uglyhedghog.com, and you may find that more to your sensibilities.

If you were my son, I would put you in time out for your tantrum.  And this thing in Syria, is that what this is about?

Best wishes in 2014, but please don't expect anyone to beg you to stay or go.

Sounds like someone's view of the world and CR is severely front focused

What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

If someone is concerned about their sensibilities being offended, they should never participate on any internet forum.  Period.
