If this is fact then sorry for your loss,.....if not, cite should be spelled with an "s"

You got a 10 from me on that entry, and I don't 10 easily! It was your very first challenge. Wow. Welcome aboard!

ok, now some context. thank you for sharing. now, since photography is done, how about taking up the resistance here in USA to permanent war fostered by the war profiteers like haliburton and bechtel. eisenhower warned us of the military industrial complex and here we are with the senseless invasions and occupations of iraq and afghanistan. www.codepink.org might be a great start for you, as both support and constructive action. best of luck.

well, your contradictions are as obvious as your lack of creativity. you want outside the box but as soon as we do we get your silly ignorant SHOE+HORN=1. how droll.

want outside the box? try the one of mine you lambasted with your ignorance: a drummer has roadies set up their kits in very specific ORDER. oft times the drummer himself (in this case herself) set it up in the ORDER they want it for the gig. so, sorry you just dont get it all the time, but rather than show your ignorance here, perhaps you could make constructive critiques - better yet, just stfu.

lazy? oh we see lazy allright ... from the likes of you that cant think past the end of your nose.

have a great day

I just got done voting for the Order challenge. I know I am probably going to get hate mail for my comments. If you didn't get one from me, then you actually did something right. Geez - so many shoehorned entries. Are people just really that lazy? If you can't shoot an image FOR the challenge don't enter one!!! It was like most people thought well, it has a pattern or it is in a row of some sort -- so that works. No! It doesn't work! The challenge was not pattern or lines or rows - it was "order."

It seems like every challenge I vote on now there are some that just throw in the old "standards" - colored water in glasses (blah), flowers for any and every theme (ek), landscapes for the sake of throwing a shot into a challenge (boring).

Let's start thinking outside the box people! The submissions this week for this challenge are the worst I have ever voted for on this site and I have been a member for a while. This was just pathetic.

' Yo_Spiff. Never would have expected that for sure lol. But Jeb, I think a comment like yours is uncalled for. You are judging someone based on this short lived outburst. Sure, she did not make a good impression, but can you really summarize her personality like that?

Well.....for starters, that was part of my motivation for my comment was that she just lit into a bunch of people who didn't deserve the vicious attacks on any level......and then to read the comments.........well, sorry, but there is no good reason or excuse for laying into people who did nothing whatsoever to her. Truly, now that there's been some explanation, yes, it *does* suck to live inside her head, and I feel badly for her situation. That doesn't excuse what she did......explains it maybe..... People lose loved ones every day, and many have trouble dealing with it. I just had a horrible emotional wound opened yesterday after 35 years. Am I going to pick a fight with all of you and tell you all you suck? No.

If you look past the harshness of her words, I think there is some underlying truth to her opinion. The problem is the way the words were delivered. I wish she had commented in the chaos challenge, because I'd like to have seen what she thought of those photos. I didn't think a lot of the shots conveyed chaos very well.

Each and every voter/member/participant has every right to their opinion, and they can use that in whatever manner they like to vote and comment. Most choose not to use it to viciously attack the entire body of a challenge in voting in the most nasty and confrontational manner possible. I happen to disagree with the practice of stating openly that the body of entries is below par. What's the point of that other than to denigrate the work and make people feel bad? If you want to make individual comments, and offer suggestions, or even mention that the image(s) doesn't work for you, and possibly why, cool, but why not vote and comment as you would be treated? Dancing in the forums on offbeat subjects and having a free-for-all to try and solve the prioblems of the world is one thing, but shouldn't what we do here as far as photography have some semblance of decency and decorum, especially if you'd like to be treated that way in return.

Wholesale slaughter is simply inexcusable.......there really is no reason.

Oh.....and all of this is my opinion, and read, on the situation. Feel free to disregard anything with which you don't happen to agree.

I feel for you and your loss - On a personal level I don't know what you are going through and I pray that I never do.
If you haven't done so, I truly hope that you seek counceling, and if you have, then maybe you should tell them what you did. DPC became a safe target for you, you don't have to see us face to face, and there is no true consequence to your actions. You purposely set out to anger a group of strangers to make yourself feel better - and that was only temporary relief.
DPC is full of wonderful people from all walks of life - many are willing to stand up to help total strangers not only with photography but every other aspect of life, including the loss of a loved one. If you stay with DPC, even if you don't have a camera, I'm sure you will fine that it could become a virtual support group for you.

I hope the best for you.

We can take it -- we're a resilient lot. And we've seen worse.

I don't blame you for being angry. And I'm incredibly sorry that you're in so much pain. While many of us can't begin to fathom what you are feeling, there are also others who have gone through horrible losses -- I know two people on here that had to deal with the loss of a young child.

I agree with a previous poster -- stay awhile; you're more than welcome here.

Me for one I took a bite of your pain. Everytime we lose one of our boys or girls I get angry at gogov for sending them away. Thanks for sharing with us what made you so angry.

I'm sure you won't believe me, but the pain will get better. Just a tiny bit better every day... IF you let it.

I'm praying that you have support people around you and that you'll take up photography again. It's something your husband wanted you to do and I think it would help you feel better... see life in a different way again.

Please stay and play with us. Everybody needs friends.

I hope you'll stay, That Chick.

Best of luck to you. I hope that you find in time that life looks a lot better than it does right now.

That explains a lot and totally fits. I'm sorry for your loss, and I'm sorry my snarky comment made things worse. Usually that would have been taken as good natured teasing. I had no way of knowing and neither did anyone else. I also know there is nothing I can say or do in an online forum that will really help.

I can attest to that. How in the world did that happen?

Plus, for what it's worth, she seems to have removed her profile portrait and all her portfolio pics...

It appears that until this challenge she hadn't made a comment since 10 February 2010...that's a long break between drinks!

I was feeling bad that my flip response about "happy pills" was what had started this. I thought perhaps I owed an apology. Then I looked over the OP's comments on the recently ended challenges, and she really did rip into people in a very undiplomatic way. When I got further back to her earlier comments, they all sounded reasonable.

I did the same. The contrast was hilarious from very negative to "Oh beautiful!" comments.
