Hmm, a voice of reason in this land of "Geez, the H.A.M.B. is the greatest thing since electric eye balls". Actually, I find the site quite interesting even if there's a lot that doesn't grab and draw me in. I understand the premise / mission of it and don't find the need to buck the system. I can only speak to my deleted post(s) and question the (one) particular moderator's choice to edit and delete. I have to agree with the complaints about photo posting. I enjoy letting my photos be seen and with one notable exception all of the shots I've posted have been mine. I'm not big on seeing things pulled from magazines and books and the photo threads are ripe with those. I'd rather see someone's half assed personal Instamatic photo than something from an article. Whatever the case, the photo threads, along with the Friday Art Show and Sunday Models are what keep me checking in each day.
