Default Nothing to see here. Move along.

Fundamentally, this is why I haven't been on the forums very much in the last number of months. Even beyond the 28 different "Why was this rejected?" threads, there's been very little worth seeing on these forums. No raging 8th grade honor students. Nobody creating torrential foamaniacal precipitation effectively ruining their camera. No flame wars between forum mainstays. Where's the entertainment? Why is this forum been so boring lately? Forums aren't any fun when everyone gets along.

/end of weird rant-ish.

Go take your ridiculous opinions and proclamations and shove them where even a barium enema won't reach.

Hmm, maybe I should do this more often ??? Naaaaa

Exclamation Meh

Well, everytime I try and get into a flame war, all the lurkers come out of the wood work and complain.

Which I find funny because lurkers opinions don't count for squat anyway.

What we need is a good EMD vs. GE argument.

What we need is someone to call out a photo again. Especially if they start it out, "I'm not trying to call out the photographer, but..."

Suggest someone study the compositional technique of Mike Danneman. That got everyone fired up.

Wink I'm so bored.

Lets start complaining about the RAT.

Then certain lurkers will make their presence known by complaing about us, complaining about the RAT.

Then we could all jump in and complain about them (the lurkers) complaining about us, complaining about the RAT.

If that doesn't work, I can tell Charles that the Mets suck (eventhough I have no clue whether that statement is true) and we can see what kind of milage the group will get out of that.

It's true, but what I'm waiting for is for Tebow to start a game for the Jets.

Hmm....Something about how my rejected photo's are extremely better than every accepted photo in the database or how RP has ridiculously high standards. Ooh! Heritage units are so overrated, but my picture should've been accepted because it's not common power.

I could bring back my weird, off kilter, B&W Steam shots if everybody wants to use Dramamine again.

You have absolutely no intelligence and I do not respect you as a person because you rejected my picture.

(I don't think anybody's actually said that but it's been implied.)
