    This group is irrelevant?

    Yeah, they also use amateurs for technical assistance. Cheap bastards.

    Yup! And those moderators are mostly dedicated and make some valuable
    contributions to the users.

    Uhm1 Corel is a Canadian company.

    That aside, I have found the help from MS to be superb. Did it ever
    occur to you that if these companies paid for help of that caliber, you
    would pay more for their products?

    Agreed.

    I don't know why Rich is complaining.

    I postex a mini review of some optics on one moderated site. I posted
    that, "The one scope clubbed the other like a baby seal." Some eurotrash
    moderator (probably one of those whining b------ who oppose seal hunting
    because they are cuter than the gooses the eurotrash force feed their
    whole lives to produce enlarged livers and more pate) cut the reference
    and then cut people's responses who referenced it in a basic quote to
    address the review. Then the eurotrash cut the entire thread! The
    thread title was a metaphor, apparenly lost on the dour european. I got
    emails from people expressive disgust with it, that some mincy little
    european would bring their personal political beliefs into play when
    moderating a forum. Moderators are humans and their political
    correctness (or FEAR) makes them do things NOT in the best interest of
    unfettered discourse.

    Some people have mentioned it to me, but unless Amazon releases
    individual statements as to specific divison profits and loss, I won't
    know for sure. I'd like to see a traffic report though.

    It seems to me that, for someone with scientific leanings, your comparison
    was completely inappropriate for a review, and your subsequent racial
    prejudices do nothing to help your argument.

    He's not prejudiced, he hates all races, ethnicities, religions, &
    plastic equally.
    I don't think he feels too good about himself either.

    --- My sig snipped which Rich didn't do ---
    What has all this garbage got to do with your (now deleted) objection
    to DP Review calling for volunteer moderators?

  18. Rich, as an Ameritrash[1] guilty of slave catching and keeping[1]
    and eating people[1] and cutting of heads and shrinking them[1]
    and cutting the living hearts out of victims[1] you don't really
    have a grip on geography. Which makes you white trash (even if
    your skin colour is green).

    BTW, your "mini review" hyped a crap lens. Which you would
    have known if you'd ever had used it. And if you'd have used
    the lens as a club, it would have broken just by swinging it.

    PS: I won't be reading your reply.

    [1] Yay, let's junk everything on the American continents
    into one bucket and pretend it's all the same.

    For one thing, Rich is Canadian, and is probably as unrepresentative of
    that nation as he is of any other North American country (there are
    only two others to choose from.)
    He has illuminated his particular xenophobia and prejudices in these
    photo-groups, and I can't believe that there are too many who hate as
    totally as he does.

    And who are you to be entitled to it?
    Do you think every entity has an obligation to disclose all details of
    its operations?
    I can imagine the cost of responding to crackpots who claim they know
    how to run a company, from their mother's basement.
