It aint fun to write stuff like this to a list of people one hardly
knows … and perhaps sily to continue any live animosity … but the
purging of people due their arrogance or naivete is perhaps always done
in a heavy handed fashion.
Ms Brauchli wrote something genuine with a reasonable voice and demanor
and Mr. Rudiak's reply (posted below) was just plain mean and ingenuous
in its own fashion.
My appeal here is to respect others and when you wish to disagree, do so
with diplomacy rather than guile. it would be very uncomfortable to eat
at someone's table who maintained such self serving manners.
I am positive there are many folks on this list who could offer
interesting info if not intimidated AND if they "read the archives"
As you are a non contributor to this list, I don't give a damn about
what you think about all this, and resent the audacity you show by
posting to us and telling us how we should behave, and not a thing about
photography. You obviously haven't been here long enough to know what
is going on, or don't have the capacity to understand. Please keep this
crap and similar off our list.
