With the risk of having this (and my account) canceled, this is how the story goes:
Earlier today I left a comment on the last challenge results: I called them a wonderful new collection of insipid snapshots and I asked to know who "challenge" is and if there is a so-called "jury" to decide who wins.
I also expressed my curiousity as to know if the "jury" even owns a camera or has anything (even remotely) to do with photography in general.
Well, my opinion hurt some feelings some place as the comment got deleted almost immediately. I would love to see such speed of reaction when it comes to people complaining about the absence of basic services on FT -- wouldn't that be nice?
Oh, I also got a message from this "challenge" person telling me my comment was insulting to the winners. Well, I'd say it was insulting to the "jury" -- at least this is who it was aimed at. I was also told (threatened?) not to make this a public thing and to "comment" through private messages.
Yeah, right! Censorship belongs to past ages. You can cancel my account, but you can't close my mouth!
I don't expect any support from anybody, but I won't accept to live in a mental concentration camp either!
