I joined this site a couple of years ago...and eventually starting joining in about 18 months ago. This site is great. Or was. And still can be. You see....I am like many of you. I am passionate about my work. I am also the type of person that likes to see people happy. On this site I could enjoy my craft, study others work, help a few people with their work and maybe make a few people smile along the way. I have brought in many new members as well as given out heaps of memberships to people on here that I have never met, but hoped to encourage to do better in their line of work.

And that's how it was.

Then a few of you got your pretty little noses out of joint. Why?? Who knows what goes on inside your <snip> heads. Maybe you should get a life. Yes, that is harsh...but think about it. Lately I have come onto this site of a morning, not to see what beautiful pieces of work have been added, like it used to be. Noooooooooo!! Lately it has been a case of 'Who is fighting now?' or 'What is the latest argument about?'

How pathetic is that.

Why don't you all grow up? If I wanted to hear arguments, I just have to listen to the children. Or maybe that is what you <snip> are....nothing but children. I thought you were all meant to be adults.

Yes, it is healthy to have an argument...but make sure there is a damn good reason for it...not these pathetic excuses I am hearing. Things like, I don't like change, barnyard animals, get a life, you don't know what you are talking about, etc etc. And don't start saying I am pointing the finger at anyone...I am NOT!! I am speaking in general.

And as for removing posts...heck I have had my fair share of posts removed...sometimes because of <people> baiting me. But that makes me just as bad (see, I can admit it....but can you?) I should have just ignored it and reported your post. But I didn't. And I took a step back and reassessed the situation.

Why I am hated by so many of you, I don't know. You haven't the guts to say why. And I used to toss and turn worrying about it. Until a good friend said yesterday, to not let it worry me. I shouldn't have to change for others. And that person was right. I haven't done anything intentional to upset you, so I am not going to change. And somehow I think this goes for many out there. Yes, there seems to be 'barnyard animals' according to some. But there are also many other groups out there who seem to think this is their site...and they seem to be put out thinking that their position is threatened. None of you own this site...only D&L do. So why don't you stop acting like children and start enjoying this site for what it is and what it has to offer. Many of you paid to be on here...so what....does that give you the right to DEMAND certain aspects of the site. No, it doesn't. It allows you to enjoy this site for what it already is. Yes, you can put in suggestions for future improvements...but not to demand that things stay as they are. This isn't your place.

Yes I am p***** off. This is a photography site people. With photography comes many different areas. If you don't like it...get out. There is nothing wrong with discussion...but it seems you lot can't have a discussion without getting your knickers in a twist and jumping up and down screaming like a two year old throwing a tantrum.

Get a life for goodness sake.

I realise this thread is whinging and bitching just like many of you do...but it is about time someone had the balls to say something. You have a choice. You can either continue whinging and end up killing this site...or you can realise that everyone can get along to a better level than what it is now. Many people have left...and many will. I have even considered leaving many times. But I am a bitch. I refuse to leave out of spite. So if you really want me to leave....than back off the crap. The more you pick on people, the longer I will stay. You have been so heroic in the way you have sent others packing, members that you could have learnt so much from. I hope you feel heroic...cause you certainly don't look it to everyone else. You have denied others from learning from those members. Is that fair? Did they pay good money to have that taken away from them? Who gives you the right to do that?

If you really don't like the way the site is going, or who is on here...then get out and set up your own DPC. There is nothing stopping you. You seem to think that you know everything....so put your money where your mouth is. Go and build your own.

Yep, you are right. This site "Used" to be fun until people started posting stuff like you just did.

Hahahaha...as long as I see smiles and not anger, then who cares....that's what this thread is all about. Stopping the BS and getting on with having fun....and that doesn't include arguments.

Curious thoughts.

Hmmmmm.

I have lots to say in response, ma'am, but since you really don't want to spur discussion but rather to vent, I won't go there.

Sometimes it feels good to spew.

I'm very sorry if any of my personal activity regarding this site in the past couple of weeks has discombobulated you or frustrated your efforts to enjoy DPC.

I think I'll go find Art and see if he's in the mood to burn a village or two. Or maybe I'll start a thread and spew. Naaah. Too much work. It's Friday.

Hey...on one condition....can I come and burn a village or two with you all. Oh and for the record....I don't remember you causing a problem with me...or are you the president of the 'Hate Judi' club....hehehehe!!

Hmmm. I was given to understand that you are far far away from any villages, so does that mean we have to wait a long long time before we can start burning villages?

As to causing you problems, I seemed to see a lot of stuff in your pickup truck there that might not have been specifically thrown at you but still wound up trashing your driveway, so I just wanted to make sure that none of the ashes from any village burning I might have been involved in had floated over to Aussie land.

There.

I'm tired of fighting too. I quit. But wait, Saturday Night's For Fighting, right? Aw, darn. I'll have to fight then.

I didn't even have to scroll down the page to know that pic or the multi-colored triptych version would get posted the minute someone spewed out the word spew. Ok back to the spew fest. :P
