    I think some people have been so used to getting replies in some manner that, if they don’t mark off getting emails when someone replies, they actually forget that they posted because they don’t check back manually. I feel like I’ve seen it a few times and in one thread I just saw today. If the question seemed honest, I try to treat it as that.

    Yes, I bought it for product photography and it works great for that.

    Maybe it's because some people will argue and stir up (stuff) because they can, and the relative anonymity of the Internet allows them to do so more often, probably making them feel like they have some kind of power, or making themselves feel a little less miserable by getting others all worked up.

    As @snowbear stated ...
    Hmm, if we were all sitting in the same room having a discussion about photography ... how many of these questions would be brought up.

    Yes, and yes. This kind of thread is often opened to get attention. So it's best to do that 'virtual walkaway' and not give them the attention and trouble that they're looking for.

    Not my intent but you can view it anyway you like.

    With the group I hang with it would come up but more of a "Dam! Can't believe you still use "X" and manage to get anything worth keeping!" or that type of ribbing. Nothing ever serious.

    My late brother would do just that. Argue for the sake of arguing. Did it many times. Left me shaking my head and most of my friends not wanting to talk to him again. He finally admitted it. After a friend was seconds away from pummeling him. It got that heated.

    He thought it was funny. I didn't. Asked why, he just shrugged his shoulders. He wasn't filming a Youtube video or anything like that. That, would at least make sense to most of us. Some people are just that way, I guess. We'll never know the real reason why because, he's no longer with us.

    There are just some people that insist on imposing their pov on everyone else. For whatever reason ( narcissism springs to the front ), I think they just like drama and want to see how many others they can get to agree with their own thoughts.

    My youngest brother does this. I’ve always said he amuses himself by annoying others - with arguments that he sometimes doesn’t even truly support. Playing “devil’s advocate “ or however he wants to justify it. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has him on their “no unnecessary conversations “list.

    Welcome to the internet where you are seeing true human nature as there are no consequences to mean, vile, idiotic, or ignorant behavior. I first saw this when learning how to drive many, many years ago where you could see mild mannered people in person turn into evil and reckless idiots behind the wheel. I am not a psychologist, but think people behave like this because they hate their own lives. The fact that this kind of stuff bothers you probably puts you in the good person category.
