Actually, Troy, I totally got what you were doing. And I made the thread.

Intimidating? No... not what has ever come to mind.

Oh don't get all thin skinned now. Part of the beauty of Troy is that he takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'.

Still don't get it even though I now know it's a joke. Frankly that's totally okay. Jokes that everyone gets make no one laugh.

Threads saying you are leaving are totally lame. Just leave if that is what you are going to do.

Oh no, I have seen pictures of that person and I am quite sure I don't look even remotely like her.

Moreover, I do not wish to assume her duties and liabilities if you catch my drift......

And I thought the conversations on Obscar were lame at times...

At least on Obscar, no one speaks with disrespect and ill will.

You remove a few folks from the Forums and we could probably get back to rational discussions.

Those folks surely will chime in: now.

PS - Derek, I see some "lost gems" in there. Good picks.

No, lol, that's not it at all. It just seems that some people have a serious case of "sand in the vagine" and the haters are coming quicker and more often.

I intend to hold up my end of the bargain. Rumors of my demise may be premature, especially if the trio of mouth breathers from Ohio keep up their rhetoric. One thing though, and the point of my last post. Maybe I do not need to go full-on 100% in each thread. This one is an example of it. Even being a dick in jest I can see can get old to some people and I can respect that.

I'm not leaving, you all arent getting off that easy... but I will try to stay out of this thread. (after this post)

I'm either sensing extreme sarcasm, or I'm puzzled on what makes them both so awesome... And I really don't know which it is.

Troy, I think the issue is you either dont understand sarcasm or you dont understand how it plays out online.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Maybe I'm slow, but I'm trying to figure out what was so bad and/or wrong with what Troy said about the two shots in this thread. Any of us could have taken the same shot with the same result had we been in that location. When I see some shots, I think to myself, "Wow, I don't think I could have done that." When I saw those shots, while very nice the both of them, it only made me think, "God, I hate South Carolina."

Think about how "I" feel, and now the plants are going to die.

This is truly a stress filled day.
