Hmmm, I must be lost...

  1. I thought I had found a photography newsgroup, but it seems I must have
    turned up in kindergarten instead. :-(

  2. Actually there is a lot of good stuff in here, just the last week or so, the
    one who live under bridges have turned up the noise. Setting up a filter
    for Jews and Zionist is a somewhat workable plan.

    I have learned a lot from this group over the last few months(about cameras
    and photography), and have a few new bagel toppings to try as well. :)

    All it takes is a few flaming trolls and off we go...

    I hope this group doesn't go the way of other groups I've visited. The
    off-topic rantings switch from background noise to center stage and sincere
    contributors leave.

    *If only people could force themselves to resist the urge to respond to
    trolls and inflammatory messages.*

    Alas, this wish has been part of Usenet since day one. Human nature is what
    it is..I guess talking about it is also part of the problem. I'll shut up

    It's referred to as the "signal-to-noise ratio". Unfortunately the signal
    (quality content) has been getting weaker and the noise (everything else) has
    been getting significantly stronger for about 10 years now.

    Stick around. It's been a bad few days. How about you introduce yourself?

    When the local reform school for insanely ignorant juveniles gave internet
    access to the inmate trolls , the idiotic offensive off subject postings
    arrived. Hopefully, the trolls will be back in their padded cells with
    internet access revoked.

  9. Hi,

    Well, I'm Aaron Queenan, I've was born in Manchester and lived there until I
    was ten. Moved to Brisbane, Australia with my parents and lived there
    before moving to Melbourne, Australia for work. A few years ago I went over
    to London, UK, and have just come to Pisa, Italy to live and work. :)

    I have to line up with everyone else who says Tuscany is beautiful, and it's
    one of the few places I've been where the postcards are of a standard I
    would be proud of. Of course they're probably so good because so many good
    photographers have been here to take photos. Unfortunately, I'm not working
    here as a photographer, although every weekend I drive and walk around
    taking heaps of photos, although I'm only at the 5 rolls a week level.
    (Where DID that 50 rolls thing come from?)

    I've just started scanning my photos and trying to figure out the colour
    calibration of the scanner, etc. Despite being seriously into computers, I
    haven't yet grasped how it all fits together. Maybe when Amazon finally
    sends the books I ordered I'll know a bit more. :-D When I've got them
    scanned properly I'll put up some of them on the internet.

    I have enjoyed photography for years, mainly landscape (originally with a
    Konica autofocus instamatic which takes surprisingly good photos) and live
    musical theatre (with a borrowed SLR). A few years ago I decided that I
    enjoyed photography too much to keep using such limited equipment and bought
    a semi-pro collection of Canon equipment consisting of an EOS 30, three
    mid-spec zooms and Hoya SMC Pro1 filters. It's been wonderful not missing
    out on shots because the camera couldn't physically take them. Having the
    best equipment I can afford, I know that if the photo's bad, then the
    photographer must be the problem. :-D

    How about you and the other regulars here?

    - Aaron.

    And your reply is no better...

    The original poster was making a futile, yet often repeated plea for Usenet
    contributors to conduct themselves in a civil manner. It won't make much of
    a difference, but it's harmless. A belligerent reply does contribute to the
    unwanted noise.

    It always surprises me when I see people making personal remarks against
    others in Usenet. I guess insulting others anonymously is difficult to

    And your remark has contributed nothing at all. As expected.
