RE: Eclair Cameras: Punctuation

It's very important to treat one another with respect irregardless of another person's viewpoint. Even if someone wants to tear apart their Eclair ACL with no experience, it is their perogative and you should respect that. If someone wants to take light readings with their TTL light meter instead of with a Sekonic L-398, that should be respected. And if someone wants to use a wacky form of English you should let them. However, these people may encounter problems along the way such as adversity, technical problems etc. and hopefully they will learn from their mistakes. I believe that it is not right to yell at someone or call them a bad name because they do things differently or in your mind "wrong." Yes, there are rights and wrongs. A noisy ACL is a lot worse than a quiet one. That is pretty black and white. But sometimes people have a different way of doing something that gives them a successful final product. This is a grey area. Even if that different way of doing things is unusual or strange--it works for that person--and they like it (case in point, I like the TTL light meter--it's worked for me, and I think that should be respected.) It's not a matter of right or wrong in that case, but a matter of different strokes for different folks.

Yes, Mozart is probably superior to rap music, and yes good grammar is probably superior to poor grammar. But that doesn't mean you should be rude to someone who has a hard time understanding or does things differently.

Love your neighbor as yourself.
