Rants sections

Can we have a rants sections? Sometimes people just wanna speak out little annoying things you know like 'arggh why cant I use CIF with DA lenses" or "arghhh why cant I get ff" or my favorite "fix the tungsten ff problems" they've been discussed to death already but sometimes its nice to vent out every now and then. Maybe we can have a section like it that won't increase our post counts and blocked by google searches?

Use this section for that: General Photography and Industry - PentaxForums.com

Also, if/once you become a "Pentaxian", you'll be able to post here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentaxian-lounge/

1) You *can* use CIF with DA lenses. Press the lens-lock button whilst focusing.
2) You *can* get FF. Just get a Spotmatic or K1000 or even a little Olympus XA.
3) I can't help with 50 Hz tungsten-light problems. You'll just have to rant away.

@3) Bring a flashlight.

I think most rants are best shared with one's self in the privacy of one's home.

Only if schizophrenic. What's the fun of ranting if nobody else notices?

Rants are better when the person(s) on the other end can't come over to your keyboard and beat the snot out of you.
