OK Danny. I'll jump right in and apologize for calling him an idiot.

However what he posted was as I said: asking if it was supposed to be funny and
it wasn't at all,  or he was just foolish in his description of what others were
taking seriously in their concerns of how many "keeper frames" they expected
from each roll.

The posted nonsense of stomping on his negatives and throwing away the rest etc
really wasn't the least bit funny no matter how one tried to read it. As
obviously several have made remarks about what was posted.

I mean after all, we on the LUG make or attempt to make "humour" at times and
usually make sure folks understand that it is an attempt at trying to be
humorous, but this was posted as a serious comment.

I trust that answers your question. Actually as of this eveing I have posted to
him asking that he clarify if it was humour or was he serious.

I trust he will clear this up before we see a round of inane posts!

Thank you,
