That's a big one! Often the so called quarreling can be quite useful in understanding complex topics...

Glad we are finally non-quarreling on something, Andrew! ;D

Argument can; but quarreling is all about the quarrelsome.

Quarreling is just another word for dialectic.

And I'll fight the first man to disagree with me.

I suppose it depends on the definition:

quarrel1
ˈkwrəl,ˈkwrəl/
verb
gerund or present participle: quarreling
   1   have an angry argument or disagreement."stop quarreling with your sister"
   2   synonyms:
   3   argue, fight, disagree, fall out; be at odds;
bicker, squabble, cross swords, lock horns, be at each other's throats;

"don't quarrel over it"

   4   
   ▪   take exception to or disagree with (something)."some people quarrel with this approach"
   ▪   synonyms:
   ▪   find fault with, fault, criticize, object to, oppose, take exception to;

I am not interested on avoiding Lula. There's plenty of good stuff here from valuable members.
As I see it from some responses to my post, there are members that actually enjoy the stuff.
If only moderators mark these threads with s warning like those marked with NSFW!
 ;D

but then nobody is forcing you to read what you are tired of...

If anything, I personnally find LL to be a lot more active in terms of article publications than they were before. Lots of interesting content really.

The site has in fact never really been only about landscape. Some sections such as MF are in fact mostly not about landscape but I find that to be interesting as it provides a very different perspective on things.

What seems to have slowed down a bit is interesting forum discussions.

Cheers,
Bernard

As far as I'm concerned, LuLa is a shinning star of photography and imaging forums.

ditto. LuLa And TOP are my "go to" sites for pretty much all things related to modern photography.  And I should add that it is indeed very very hard to keep interesting original content coming week after week, month after month, when only a few creatives are producing or even just merely gathering that content. The internet is awash in a sea of disinformation. Always important to find sites with a much higher signal to noise ratio.  :)  I speak with some experience in that I try to provide useful information to my fellow printmakers at my own pace, on a much much smaller scale than Lula, and on a much narrower scope of subject matter. Yet it's still the hardest project I've ever tried to tackle. The internet doesn't really generate original content by itself.  People still have to collect, create, and contribute.

So, thank you to Michael, Kevin, Chris, and all the LuLa contributors for letting their passion for photography spill over into our daily lives.

cheers,
Mark

argue (tl;dr disagree + give reasons) versus quarrel (angry disagreement)

he is what most of us at Luminous-Landscape are an enthusiast.  Notice I don't like the word amateur. 


Only because I am a frustrated etymologist that has no friends.   ;D

It is interesting that you prefer the term "enthusiast" which means  "a person who is filled with enthusiasm for some principle, pursuit, etc." over

"amateur" which means "a person who engages in a study, sport, or other activity for pleasure rather than for financial benefit or professional reasons. " 

Both definitions from Dictionary.reference.com and are the first (primary or most common) definitions of the specific term.

An enthusiast does not have to do anything.  I can be an enthusiast about photography and never take a picture. Whereas an amateur is someone who actually participates.  If I am an amateur photographer I have to take photographs.

I know that some people use amateur as a derogatory term.  But it really shouldn't be.

Especially in the field of photography where we have amateurs with more experience and more talent than professionals have in some cases.

Yeah, only a friendless disgruntled etymologist would care.  LoL

I wonder how long I can go without taking photographs before I am reclassified from amateur to enthusiast?

Sadly, I may be getting close.

(I gotta get out and take some snappies!)

Sadly, I fear we have professionals who are not enthusiasts.
