I liked Bad Motive better. If you're going to get slapped down, might as well get hit in the mouth by a two by four.

Most of my rejections seem to be "under-sharpening" and "bad cropping".
Maybe time to give it sometime and getting better at shooting and post before trying!? The why is you just have to grow a bunch first and know what works and not.

That was funny in a way, but I know three people who's pictures are no longer on RP because they participated in it.

I was kind of wondering, because I submitted a picture of a Hemingrey insulator that day, not knowing that those kids were doing that.

I concur, as there is no sense in holding back when you're questioning a persons' core motives
