I'm sorry to hear of your bad news.

I don't think Mitch was picking on you, rather he was picking on those of us, including himself, who remained in the forum during your absence.

Precisely, and I assume obviously - life stops "going on" when you spend too much time here. Sorry to hear the news and hope for the best possible outcome.

Unless you started a thread at some point using your shot and extolling the greatness of RP, I think what has happened is that you have missed Joe's point.

Prayers for her and the entire family as you all enter this fight. Circumstances such as this really hammer home just how meaningless things are such as forum debates.

Thanks for the nice thoughts, guys. I may be in and out of discussions as the weeks and months go on---but this spot is often an engaging respite from the grind of life.

Nope, I didn't miss Joe's point one bit. I intentionally used one part of his quote to try to gain some views on my shot.

I knew what you were doing, Jim, and made sure I did not click on your shot!

Hey, it worked with me, I look at many of your pictures and favourite some, they worthed (is that the conjugation?) it. The trick can be applied in any post

There should be another rejection: "bad grammar". But I won't edit the mistakes

That was accepted in April 2011, I guess its just personal preference to the screener. I liked it, I suppose they did too..
