I, for one, am tired of reading insults, snipes, etc. in the threads on TPF. How about this tree where, if you want to flame someone, you do it here ... get it off your chest ... then go back to the main board and contribute civilly. Title your flame with the name of the person you wish to insult and he/she can decide whether or not to read it. Jeesh, the tone has gotten downright nasty on many threads which started with innocent questions, posts, etc. It especially upsets me when a newcomer (either to TPF or photography or both) is attacked mercilessly.
