Why did you write what you did on an open forum?
What did you hope to accomplish?
I think Don and Dee are probably some of the nicest down home folks you have ever met.
I also think there is validity to what Bluegrass wrote and I don't want to turn this into a Don right/wrong post.
The number counts speak for themselves, the posting of additional accounts to prop up vote counts in the contest also speaks for itself in a pretty strong term (we call that cheating where I come from).
Bottom line to me is that Don has shown remarkable progress in a short period of time and nobody can take that away from either of them. People who have met them say they are the nicest folks you could ever find.
But the issues Bluegrass brought up have troubled more than just him, and the tirade against Rolando was pretty serious to me. If I had been RG i would have banned him for what Don wrote, especially after they admitted they cooked the votes in the model contest. Am I the only one who is troubled by this?
That has nothing at all to say about his photography.
But you brought it up and I think the post Bluegrass wrote touched a lot of valid points.
I don't know what you hoped to accomplish by posting what you did. Slamming Bluegrass for pointing stuff out is not going to do much.
Would it have more validity if someone with tons of pics in their portfolio wrote it?
Does being a good photogrpaher make you a better judge of character?
Is it your main point that he is new to the community? We all had to join at sometime or another.
So I am not sure Bluegrass is the fool, and I'll gladly join in his fools company.

But what the heck did that have anything to do with JT's topic..?? Don was replying to JT's topic,...and here comes this no-name out of the blue to highjack the topic, and to rip Don to shreds..
What was that a-hole attempting to accomplish..? He *COULD* have reserved those off topic comments for a private message,...but since he is hiding like a coward behind his "bluegrassimages" screen name, and nothing else,...I guess he felt it was perfectly o.k. to go about with the ass ripping..
Rolando didn't ban Don. Don is still a member here. Do we need "people" like "bluegrassimages" to rip us a new one every time we reply to a new topic, to remind us of something else we might have said, or done on another topic here..??
Sorry Glenn,..I disagree with you here..
