Commenting On Unused Equipment

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Curiouser and Curiouser, Oct 27, 2009.

  1. Are you aware that you and others of your ilk have now proved yourselves
    beyond a shadow of all doubts to be nothing but inexperienced and ignorant
    trolls, again?

    Stay on topic, you ignorant and inexperienced know-nothing thread hijacking
    trolls. Catch-22. If you stayed on topic you wouldn't be a troll. Continue
    going off topic and you have precisely proved my point.

    Sucks to be as stupid as you, doesn't it.

    Read it again. Here it is again for your perusal. Can you answer it without
    your usual off-topic trolling? The challenge is on. (Guess who's going to
    win. Once a troll, always a troll. Asking a troll to not act like a troll
    is like asking a slug to not travel by use of its exuded slime layer
    discharge.)
    We all wait with bated breath for your non-troll response. (Apostrophe left
    off of "bated" to see how many apostrophe-trolls are in abundance.)

    Since you failed to address or answer the question, there it is again. Any
    further off-topic trolling without addressing the question and you will
    prove, beyond all doubt, that you are nothing but an ignorant troll, again.
    It's just that simple.

    Sucks to be you, doesn't it.

    And so easily preventable with the use of a simple apostrophylactic,
    too. Tsk tsk.

    Well, sometimes he labors. Then there's a lot a copying & pasting of

    is than a dslr, we know into which category you fall.

    Good point. Makes you wonder what he actually does think, and what
    photographic equipment & experience he actually has.

    Maybe he's a P&S user who can't afford a DSLR and so decides to troll
    those who can as some sort of revenge.

    Maybe he's a DSLR user, even a well-known and -respected one doing it
    on a bet.

    Maybe it's actually Annie Leibovitz working out some frustrations over
    her recent financial situation.

    Anyone know a good psychologist or FBI profiler willing to look over
    his posts and share some insights? Might be entertaining. :)

    OK, I take your point. I guess I was just too sleepy last night to recognize

    Gotta get a good night's sleep tonight, though: very important photo shoot
    tokmorrow evening (open house at the new library).

    You can't help but form some impressions about him. He's not
    unintelligent. His writing style and subject matter indicates that
    he's intelligent enough to be articulate and intelligent enough to do
    research on subject matter.

    Most probably a victim of some form of autism with a helping of idiot
    savant. The repetition in his posts and posting style point to the
    autism. He needs to feel things are in proper order, writes something
    that he feels is right, and then repeats and repeats and repeats that
    same thing.

    Like idiot savants, he has a splinter skill. His is becoming very
    familiar with one technical subject area. This indicates high
    right-side brain development.

    His inability to demonstrate any applied skill in photography despite
    a knowledge of the technical side of cameras and photography says that
    he's fulfilled in knowing the subject matter but has no interest in
    actually doing photography. Photography isn't his goal; knowing the
    subject area is. Because actually taking photographs doesn't interest
    him, he denigrates those who do because he considers that skill to be
    unimportant.

    The lack of social skills is further indication of the idiot savant
    manifestation in autism. He understands that he has no social skills
    and, to avoid rejection, he pushes people away with his abuse. It's a
    "You can't reject me because I've already rejected you" thing.

    You won't get him out of the newsgroup. He needs it. He's unable to
    form normal social relationships so he's made this his social
    relationship, and - unlike in his outside life - he can control this
    relationship. He feels that people must pay attention to him here.

    The bit about retiring at 25 is probably a reference to the age when
    he came to grips with the fact that he wasn't going to be able to
    function in a normal environment and hold a job. The references to
    treks in the desert and in swamps are fantasies about how his life
    would have been if he was normal.

    That's my theory, anyway.

  12. Like all useless trolls, you have that quite backward. You're here for MY
    entertainment. Trolls are and will always be my little entertainment pawns.

    fucking stupid as your ilk.)

    aren't too bright and might need a few more of your pathetic troll

    While it's fun to tweak him with the "idiot savant" label, I really
    think the "savant" part of it is giving him too much credit. I'm
    fairly sure his knowledge of the subject stems from Google searches.
    (Or maybe he uses Yahoo or MSN Search/Live Search/Bing/whatever
    today's rebranding of MS's search engine is. Doesn't really matter.)

    As an example, IIRC some of his earlier arguments about optics were
    from an astronomy standpoint. I suspect he Googled optics & lenses and
    happened to glean his info from an astronomy page dealing with
    telescopes. He soon corrected that, no doubt from further reading on
    more camera-related pages on optics. That kind of misstep and
    correction doesn't strike me as idiot-savantish.
