    D...Mac Guest

    I wouldn't try holding my breath waiting if I were you Rita.
    There seems to be a few isolated idiots in these groups who think
    normal conversation has to be an aggressor and a target. Too many
    computer games when they were left alone. They never developed any
    social skills past a keyboard or joystick.

    Anyone (like me) who is in business on the Internet is fair game for
    these anonymous scum, looking for some amusement. There are less than
    a handful of these idiots here yet they are able to dominate the
    groups with their gutter minded language and stupid antics. To hope
    they might one day grow up is expecting way too much.

    I think even expecting any of them to actually produce an example of
    their work is highly unlikely too. For them, the hate is what fuels
    their brain. Maybe if they had to kill someone on foreign soil
    believing they were fighting for a better world, they'd pretty soon
    wake up to themselves when they discovered how frail life really is.

    The thought that my cousin and brother died in service of their
    country thinking they were "saving" the rest of us might not so
    quickly have put themselves in harms way had they experienced the
    stupidity of these despots they died trying to protect.

  5. and out comes the Patented "I'm so persecuted" multi paragraph D-Mac reply

    OK Rita, I'll put it to you this way, I'm not jealous of D-Mac or Douglas or
    D..Mac or whatever name he is using this week to avoid killfilters.
    What I don't like it this "Poor me" and "Stop picking on me" bullshit that
    Douggie goes on with, then in the next breath he will deliberately provoke
    others in here with what can only be called "Hate" threads, making
    unprovoked attacks on other posters in this news group.

    The problem is when Douggie is asked to provide even a simple shred of proof
    (Like what distinguishing feature there is about Mark Thomas the day he
    allegedly stole from Douggies market stall) the either is suddenly silent,
    or when posters ask for the Police report numbers of the many and varied
    "Official" police complaints that Douggie has *apparently* made, so that
    they are able to ring the police and offer their assistance, Still nothing
    to be heard from the Douglas camp there.

    Or how about the fact that Douggie has *promised* that Brett and Mark would
    both be knee deep in Federal police and Tennessee Bureau of Investigations
    officers and spending Christmas behind bars. Both member of this group are
    STILL posting and STILL waiting for this to happen.
    Rita, I like you, you have a sense of humour and yes, I do realise that your
    taking the piss with your "Formidable 500 " et al shots. your also a decent
    human being, when Douglas tried to take a shot at Brett, basically accusing
    him of being the type of person who would miss-treat a family pet, you
    replied that it was your belief that Brett would of course look after the
    mighty Jewel, just as you look after Roxy. Douglas on the other hand tried
    to take a cheap shot and your reply was elegant in what it didn't say.

    Douggie is a bully, pure and simple, he doesn't have a nice thing to say
    about anyone who has had the gall to make a comment about his "adequate"
    photography, he is renown for using sock puppets to help him ridicule and
    attack other posters in this group (just go back a month, the evidence is
    there, just who is Sarina.sarin??) When his bullying starts to go pear
    shaped he trots out the "I'm reporting you to the police for cyber stalking"
    yet when he is the one doing the attacking, his excuse is that its a right
    of reply.

    I'm the first to admit that I'm not going to set the world on fire with my
    photography, maybe that's why I haven't shared much of it (yes I have posted
    links to some of my photos, long ago and under a different name) but maybe
    its also because I know how insecure Douggie can be, and if I did indeed
    post a worthy photo, Douggie would be the first to offer nothing but
    ridicule and derision, and if history is anything to go by, he will then use
    that information to try and track me down so he could make YET ANOTHER hate
    site like the one he wheels out for Brett every now and then.

    So No, I don't feel any jealousy towards Douggie, maybe a little pity for a
    man so shallow and twisted up that he has to not only feel persecuted, but
    bring much of it on himself by going out of his way to alienate others in,
    what can only be described as a sad cry for attention.

    Keep up the "Formidable 500 " shots, I will of course call them for what
    they often are (though sometimes you slip in a nice one) and I will keep
    reading Douggie posts and commenting one the ones that are obviously meant
    to hurt others. I'm sure Douggie will do his best to ignore this post
    (apparently I'm in his kill file) and I will ignore Douggies posts that are
    nice and polite and constructive. But when he tries to take a shot, I WILL
    point that out.
    Oh and before Doug can have a whine, I have absolutely no problem with him
    defending any obvious theft of copy written material, It is his right to use
    whatever LEGAL means he needs, to protect what is his.

  6. lol. she still doesn't get what is already old news to everyone. all nikon
    bodies are internally canons, stolen and repackaged by nikon. nikon in them is
    only skin deep. no wonder that under the thin cover of the "official" menu she
    found the canon's one (you can call it "extended menu" if you want, lol).

  7. Good point! I loved my Mk III and Nikkor adapters, but the D3 is so nice
    since they built the lens adapter directly into the body. I hope my Nikkor
    adapters didn't depreciate since the introduction of the D3? I'll have to
    throw them on eBay and recoup some pocket change.

    If you had any class you'd send them to me. And why would you need
    more than 1?
    Annika1980, Jan 18, 2008
  9. One for each lens of course. I kept one on the 17-35/2.8, 28-70/2.8,
    50/1.4, 85/1.4, 105/2.8, and one on the 58/1.2 and 200/2 when I had them.
    Oh, I almost forgot the spare. One can't get by with less than six adapters
    so that is what is needed for quick changing of the Nikkors.

    Or you could just keep one on the camera, dumbass.
    Annika1980, Jan 18, 2008
  11. Now that's funny! It doesn't work that way, dumbass. You have to take the
    lens and adapter off of the camera to remove the adapter from the lens.
    Buying and using six adapters is the only *quick* easy way to do it. I know
    it looks stupid having a Canon lens cap on a Nikkor, but that's the only way
    you are going to get the best glass on a Canon body. I know one thing,
    those fucken Canon lens caps are the poorest design I ever seen.
