I really, really, really dislike the frequency I see incorrect usage of "I" and "me" these days.
"I" is NOT possessive, world, nor is it an object. grr arg.

I think I'm going to start making enemies.
Ok, I suppose the above example isn't inaccurate as there is no predicate.... She well could mean, "...and I are..." blah blah.

The Self Portraits Community is one of my favourite places to make enemies.

quarantine is the greatest LJ troll of all time. Met him yet? For a few weeks, he decided my photography was worse than Hitler and made a point of telling me so.

I don't believe I have...

Every once in a while I'll get in a mood and I'll critique the photos in SP with all the strength and fervor that I've got. Like art school, damnit! OH BOY. Some people have no sense of humour about it. A few have reformed their heathen ways.A few have decided I may in fact be worse than Hitler myself. Fantastic!

(The grand irony of this is, of course, being one of the few that posts Art to a community that is all too often just cam-whoring.)

90% of people in these communities just want affirmation that they are Gods Among Photographers!!! They are merely posting for your worship.

Duh.

That said, the only community I've ever had positive response to criticism is urban_decay. They seem to be good people overall.

Ohh yea, that community is awesome. I've been watching it for several years now - I think I've maybe posted there once or twice. I've also had pretty good luck with bestshot. There's a lot of "real" photographers there; they'll offer you advice if you need it, praise if you deserve it, and a boot in the ass if you're a douche.

I hope that you know that I specifically purchased a USB cable to keep at work so I could upload photos that I take right away. otherwise most nights I had to wait until I got home from the ARC.

yet again, you have changed my life.

excellent.

People who don't know the difference between "a" and "an", people who don't know where commas go, people who don't know the difference between "there" and "their"... I can't stand it.
