    MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT

    My announcement today is that my pet troll - the one who defames me and
    post lies about me, claiming to have "mates" in ASIC who'll decend on me in
    an instant at his command but never do, who called me a fraud and said I
    didn't have a storefront and didn't have any authority to photograph and
    take photographic tours in National parks - all refuted with photographic
    and photocopied evidence I posted last year for all to see ...The one who
    claims the 600mm x 900mm enlargements I do from snapshots on a daily basis
    and print on Canvas can't be done... The list goes on, just like his lies.

    The one and only has finally gotten married to one of his own
    species and here is an exclusive photo of the happy couple.
    http://community.webshots.com/photo/66340021/66340226GZiuUk Sorry, if you
    want the whole shoot, you'll have to come up with more than the usual
    please. I choose this memorable shot with his hair blown away (some would
    wish) to satisfy his need for critical review of wedding photographs.

    I don't recall ever originating a single post about any
    subject to do with photography yet he sure as hell hijacks a lot of threads
    and passes a lot of comments, does a lot of defamation ...all without
    offering a scrap of useful knowledge to anyone... He's a troll of the worse
    kind. Scum not worth scraping the barrel for - I can't imagin why anyone
    bothered to scrape him out of one.

    The natural euphoria which comes with success. You can also get the same
    effect from C41 at as little as 1 degree over temp. Smell it when you walk
    into a lab where they are pushing film to make money at the expense of your
    contrast range. I used to get a milder effect from EP2 but now I'm using RA,
    I hardly get off the ground.

    What're you on, mate?

    OT. I'm getting sick of repeating all this, but I shall do it calmly
    and without descending to the level of a five-year-old having a
    tantrum.

    (And if you click on this silly thread, you probably deserve to be
    bored anyway.. If you have heard the Douglas and Graham Hunt story
    before, read on at your own peril..)

    For the record:
    1. I have never, not once, lied about Douglas MacDonald. (This is the
    same Douglas MacDonald who posts as, wait for it.. alienjones himself,
    bigpix, the administrator, henretta, douglas, from douglas,
    technoaussie, one million pics, one million pictures, joe bailey,
    alvie, the yowie, graham hunt, healthypcs.. and more. Me? - I'm just
    Chrlz...)

    And at times he does indeed use those pseudonyms fraudulently, eg here
    (easily verifiable, just check the message headers against Douglas'
    other posts at the time):

    http://tinyurl.com/86m34

    Douglas was mighty annoyed about being sprung posting as 'Graham Hunt'
    and ended up with numerous excuses. The last was that 'Graham' was an
    employee (it would still be highly fraudulent, of course). As it
    happens, and you can easily verify this too, he *has* no franchise, so
    my mates at ASIC will do nothing (unless he does now start one, which I
    think is very unlikely indeed).
    Douglas IS a fraud. See above link for unequivocal proof - the message
    headers do not lie. I'll stand before a judge and say it if necessary.
    And it's already in writing on the ASIC records.
    But Douglas doesn't have a storefront *according to his own website*,
    here:
    http://www.photosbydouglas.com/contact.htm
    which says and I quote:
    That's all, folks. In other words, no shopfront address, and Douglas
    presents his wares at a street market on Sundays. Uhuh. Or isn't that
    site his? Gee, maybe it's Graham Hunt's?
    I *never* said Douglas didn't have a simple permit for photography in
    national parks - crikey, *anybody* can get one of those - it's just a
    moneymaker for the Parks and Wildlife Service. Douglas implied it was
    some badge of honour!! *That* is what I corrected - having a permit
    for commercial shooting in a national park does *not* mean anything
    about your ability as a photographer. The fact that Douglas thinks it
    *does*, probably gives a better indication..
    Douglas claims that he has a 'special' enlarging algorithm that allows
    you to print to those sizes and more from scans of 6"x4" prints, and
    from 1-2 megapixel images. Well, whooppee, I can print them that big
    *too*. But they are *soft*, and if the image is detailed, it will look
    like something from a bull's rear end.. It's the *quality* I question.
    No-one disputes that you might get away with this on *selected*
    images, like macros of frangipanis.. When asked for actual examples of
    his secret algorithm, Douglas strangely always gets his maths wrong,
    and will never allow his secret methods to be demonstrated on *any*
    image that has actually got real detail, or in fact any image except
    his own. His posted examples were so flawed that once again, as
    always, he withdrew them - I can post links if anyone is actually
    interested.

    What I object to is that Douglas claims these prints have 'manufactured
    detail'!! - why, even his 'daughter' (who sounds an awful lot like
    Douglas, as you might expect (O:) says that too, here:

    http://www.w3freaks.com/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t54125.html

    You'll have to scroll down a bit to find the 'One Million Pictures'
    posts (another of Douglas' pseudonyms, by the way). In it, 'Kiah' also
    refers to a $500,000 printer that Douglas just bought.... Wow.
    Personally, I would use such equipment for stuff other than snapshots,
    but I guess that's just me... (O:
    *Who* is lying again? When asked to actually quote any of my lies,
    Douglas is strangely reticent.
    Perhaps Douglas should look a little harder.
    I just like to correct misinformation when it is posted, and I don't
    particularly like people who use the Internet fraudulently, or pretend
    they can do stuff they can't.
    If Douglas has been defamed, any half-decent lawyer can track me down.
    Douglas himself at one stage claimed he had a PI on my trail - Geez, he
    must be incompetent! I note Douglas has used similar tactics on other
    folks, almost always *after* he has been busted in similar ways to that
    above. This isn't the first time he has used these tactics and
    probably won't be the last.
    Sorry, I just did. Sue me.

    Hey Gary...
    In a perfect world people like would identify themselves before
    defaming honest business people. In the same perfect world, the Internet
    would not afford scum like him, the protection to anonymously firing off
    random barbs aimed at destroying the credibility of people doing for a
    living, what he claims to have done but cannot offer any evidence of
    actually having doing.

    The saddest thing of all about this fraudster is his posts always contain
    just a grain of believability along with all the bullshit, lies and
    defamation. My retaliation is to belittle prick and in the process raise a
    bit of a giggle. Killfiles are for people who don't wish to be bothered by
    such things. Killfile him and you'll never know he exists. It won't be as
    easy with me because I keep changing my screen name to thwart those with
    nothing better to do than compile databases of Usenet chatter.
