Russ, you might want to take into account that English is not Ivo’s mother tongue and that “what it means” might be lost in translation.

Thanks Slobodan, you are correct, I need to be more careful in putting text on the forum.

Let me rephrase:

You consider someone point of view as a shortcoming. The word ‘Shortcomings’ is your vocabulary to describe somebody’s point of view.
Using the word ‘Shortcoming’ is your way of expressing you can not deal with something you don’t get.

And if you don’t understand it, I can repeat it in the four languages I actively use in daily life. (with some shortcomings). but what is the use of candle and glasses. .........

You are priceless. I bet you had a main role as butler in a ‘90 sitcom

By the way, Slobodan: if you're not fluent enough in a language to understand what you're saying and to argue the points you're trying to make, you really ought to just shut up and listen. You might even learn something that way.

Interesting, though, how you can get along pretty well in English most places in the world unless you go into the back country. I know -- knew -- enough Thai to get around town, but most people I dealt with had at least a basic grasp of English -- even in the back country there'd be somebody able to communicate.

Like it or not, Eric is totally correct.

It's telling that the understanding of the terminology comes from us older cats. Of course, being older must make us wrong, never mind the fact that we saw it happening fairly soon in the game, often before some of our young Turks were born.

It's as if sombody comes up with American football but insists on calling it soccer. How odd, and how unfortunate for the fresh faces who only manage to defeat their own enjoyment of photography by the attempted forcing of their square pegs into older round holes. You'd be forgiven for thinking that old tripod holes were sin enough.

But hell, what does it matter - it's all going down the tubes anyway.

You see? Positivity is my middle name!

Communicate as in 'shut up and listen', private Russ?  ;)

What I'm going to do, Russ, is keep posting pictures and starting topics, feel free to continue your pathetic one man quest against everything not according to the rule of Russ.

Ivo, I’m going to ignore your insults, but only because Slobodan is sure you don’t understand English, so it’s clear you have no grasp of what you’re saying. Come to think of it, that's been obvious ever since you joined LuLa.
