Good point. I have failed to understand why people ask to be deleted. All it does is remove their ability to post. There is no mail list or anything else of the sort that implies continued participation. All they need to do is just go away.
My only assumption is that it is some form of protest, though no one has had either the sense or the balls to let me know what the protest is about.
I have not posted in a while... as a rule I only post to a thread if I can add something... but am often tempted if there is an on-going "joke" to join in on!
People asking to be removed smack's of attention seeking in my opinion. I think the Luminous landscape forum is great and as far as I am concerned it is a case of their loss not ours!
Let's not forget that this website is about subscribing to the excellant video journals and also using them as a topic for discusion about both photographhy AND gear. This makes the L-Landscape webpage unique in the experience if offers and also makes it much harder work for Michael to produce and administer than a striaght DPreview type of site (which mostly posts news and the odd review).
Do not be dishearted by some of the ego's here Michael, just look at the numbers logging on and NOT making "a big song and dance"... these figures speak lounder than any other and suspect that they continue to grow day by day!
Keep it up: and the same to all the rest of you experienced photographers and technicians who keep us lesser acolytes informed!
