    Interestingly enough, I somehow think that when someone calls an entire group of THOUSANDS of artists pretentious... they might be the ones who are being a tad pretentious.

    It's a joke. I'm not suggesting that anybody go pop pills to calm themselves down.

    I thought that is what you wear so people don't recognize the one who took the unsharp pictures ...

    Right? I'M the pretentious one?

    I'm not going to argue that, but my point stands. Pointing out an entire website filled with millions of users, and tens of millions works of "art" as being pretentious is a bit extreme, don't you think?

    Besides, its nothing more than a gallery, and I would assume you probably offended a few people by posting that those that use it are classified pretentious.

    But, then again, as I pointed out - there is something inherently wrong with users of a forum who dedicate time out to poke fun at those less knowledgeable/less skilled then they are. Sure this thread is fun to make puns of certain things, but a few posts are personal attacks - and thats the reason the TPF is not what it once was.
