You guessed wrong........... I didnt miss the insult, but I have yet to see a reasonable justification for it or any of the personal insults. I really dont care how you chose to attack a photo, but you cannot give reasonable cause for personal attacks.

Well, I have had all the fun I can for today. Sorry Mike, I cant stay and play anymore today.

Its not picking on him............ Don't you understand that we are doing just what he wants..........giving him attention... I respond only to satisfy my own twisted need for entertainment.

And the classic Mike B. approach to changing the wording to make his point/further the argument/not face the issue at hand:

Original post:
Quote:
I may insult their photo, but not them as a person.
The latest wording:
Quote:
In no way is it insulting to a person when you don't like their photo.
Anyone see the difference? Yes, slow kid in the back who drools and eats paste? That's right...there's a big difference between not liking a photo and insulting a photo.

You see, it's possbile to not like a photo without insulting it. It happens all the time, and people can still offer advice/critique/opinion on a photo they don't like without insulting it.

But now the argument has been shifted away from insulting to not liking. Why? Because Mike B. can't defend his original position/statement. Classic Mike B. word play...

Travis was deserving of an insult because the photo he uploaded was extremely flawed. He's been around long enough to know better.

Ween, If I say "I don't like your photo" how is that not insulting? It seems like the same thing to me.

See my above post. 'Splains it pretty well.

It's a long bridge between "I don't like your photo" (not insulting) to "I hope you're f****** kidding" (insulting).
