Yeah, I also have the feeling sometimes that people start to blame their equipment far before they've really explored it's limits. All the way around, I think there are very narrow fields only, where Pentax can't provide the right solution. And I'm wondering if there are really so many guys between us, who specialise exactly in these gaps.
Quite. I think many people forget that, prior to the 90s, professional photographers in all fields were using film bodies with just a fraction of the capabilities and functionality of even the cheapest DSLRs of today. They got their photographs through technique. Any of the latest cameras will do a fine job in pretty much every field if the photographer learns to get the best out of their equipment.

Beholder dude I'm with you on this one. Too many serious folks here swallowing hook line and sinker from the troll OP.

Actually, how does the "Ignore" function work here? I've never actually added anyone to my ignore list... I just do it manually by not reading what they post, if I'm so inclined... but I'm interested to know if it actually reduces the noise? Surely it'll only mean I don't see threads started by an ignored user, but I'll still see their responses in threads - right?

This whole forum has to have the lowest troll-to-honest post ratio of any board I have ever seen. Remarkable accomplishment.

Request to Admin: Please give us a way to "thumb down" a post.
Ignore works very well for me. Another one on the growing list. Using ignore makes reading the forum so much more pleasant.

when you list a person on your 'ignore' list, you don't see their posts in threads - their post is replaced with a statement that the post is not shown due to them being on your 'ignore' list and you have to option to view it...


what I find invaluable is the fact that if that person starts a thread, you won't see it in the forums at all - this is nice for me, since I put the chronic nay-sayers, idiots, Debbie-downers, etc on my list and I deal with their irritations only if I want to, rather than having to sort through their dreck whenever I open the forum....
