DRM, I found your comments offensive though not as much as the ones that followed. I changed the spelling as the mistake had been pointed out to me.
As to my original comment: This is MR's website and his forum, as in someones house you would not refer to them in a demeaning term, so to you shouldn't here. MR is usually referred to as 'Reichmann' when he is being slammed on other boards, it is almost always used as a derogatory term. I don't know of any other photographer or expert in the photographic field who is referred to on forums by a surname only, especially when they are not known by that in day to day life. I believe that it would be only common courtesy to refer to MR by a less demeaning term on his own website.
I've never met Michael, I've never been on one of his trips, I don't subscribe to the LLVJ (sorry Michael, the format doesn't appeal to me, I don't own a DVD player either). I find some of his pictures to srike a cord with me, some don't. I will buy one of the pictures when I get round to it (Geyser Glow — Yellowstone Feb. 2002), but I wouldn't consider myself to be brown nosing or in any way 'sucking' up to MR. I find MR to have his head firmly screwed on his shoulders and that's all that counts.
