    I joined a while back in 2012 but haven't been posting much until now. I think I was afraid to due to previous forum experiences years ago.

    I absolutely hate forums where things are not discussed so much as "shouted" about, with opinion "inflicted" rather than shared. I think this place is singularly well populated with a lot of sincere, polite, and talented photographers, and the moderation must work well also.

    I SWORE I wouldn't be joining any more forums after leaving other non-photography forums years ago, and reading what went on in some current forums on a regular basis.

    If I ever appear to be heavy handed, please let me know. I do have strong opinions, but I TRY to make my "internet voice" appropriate. Sometimes I may not realize how I come off though so I welcome polite correction, lol.

    Glad to be here and to be meeting you all.

    Welcome to the site. I have found people on this forum (and most photography forums that I have tried) to be polite and very helpful. But WT21 is right, it is highly addictive!

    I haven't read your post carefully but I disagree with everything you have said because I am in a bad mood. This forum is awful, I am the only good poster on here despite joining only a few days ago. I hope my brilliant presence gradually makes this a half-decent place to hang out but I am not holding my breath. Did I mention that you are wrong? I probably did, just can't be arsed to see what I typed in at the beginning of the post because I have more important things to do like create photographic masterpieces in between the GAS relapses. Oh and you are wrong because I am always right. Welcome! :)

    The three forums set up by Amin are remarkably friendly places. Tempers may, on occasion, flare, but it's the exception rather than the rule. Many of us have strong opinions about the gear we use, but I think most of us realize that people have different needs, a preference for how to work being a need in this instance. Not all street photographers are going to run to the same lens or camera, etc.

    If you've run away from DPReview's forums, you'll find mu-43 delightfully different.

    Welcome aboard! I, too, have enjoyed the photos that you've posted on this forum, so please keep them coming!

    Agree with others that this forum is highly addictive, and could lead to serious cases of GAS though... :biggrin:
