I am not prepared to consider somebody as being a photographer who questions the above fundamental,
In the context of this community, to publicly reject someone as 'a photographer' is pretty provocative and is a fundamentally rude position to take.
We are all photographers here - aspiring, amateur, professional, accomplished, talented, not so talented ...
.. to try and start declaring who is and who is not a photographer in this manner is fundamentally unacceptable behavior.
I wish you would keep some of these feelings to yourself.
