Guess what, William? You have not been appointed the official LUG censor. We
were actually having a very interesting brainstorm discussion here about how
one might introduce new photographers to Leica. Why do you feel it necessary
to quash just about every discussion that you can't personally control,
either here or on the Leica forum? 

I'd suggest you get your wellies back on and slog on out through the stuff
you've been dragging in and spare the rest of us your nasty vitriol. 

If you don't like what you hear, or it offends your tender sensibilities,
you can always press the DELETE button at any time. 

As for my work? I don't have to prove anything to you or anyone else. I show
my work to whomever I choose. And I have not chosen you, for obvious

Hello Kit,

Suggest you find someone with a very tall ladder to help you dismount
that horse before you get nose-bleed.

Let's also have no more fantasy island for a bit shall we. I can't seem
to find my Wellies. I'm not the only one who's tiring of all this pointless
bibble, BTW.

Perhaps we might even discuss Leicas for a change or look at some
good Leica pictures? Where are yours?
