    Second upload of this guy, as far as I can see and second rejection (no photos in the db), this time for Blurry, Undersharpened (Soft), Window Glare / Dirt, Too much or too little contrast, Horizon unlevel, Bad Info and Bad quality.

    Appeal message: "i will sue the owners of this website if this photo doesnt get put on this is bull shit"

    Classic reply: "We look forward to hearing from your lawyer."

    dumb mail reply: "There are some photos ten times worse out there i will be sending a virus to shut down the website"

    Apparently, everybody has a lawyer and can send out a virus, but nobody seems to have a brain doctor nowadays

    End of the story: this topic here (so far) ...

    Oh, the photo in question.....
    Should sue him for making threats against the website...

    Oh, sorry, didn't see it ........

    Let's put it that way. So far I never published any names. But if he thinks, he can threat us and be treated fair, he's wrong. Besides: I don't know, if that is his real name.

    Perhaps I replace the photo this evening, when I'm at home.

    The policy of idiots-anonymous is no longer valid? Since the name of the photog still shows on the photo.

    Saurabh, Oliver: nice to see such comments.

    On a lighter side: there are bad comments and then there are comments, they are so low .... that they start getting entertaining and of course, we won't hesitate to post them here.

    Some of those mails definitely sound entertaining. Just wish people who spend that extra amount of creativity ( that they put in writing those mails ) into actually taking better shots !!
    I could not agree more with you there. Certainly since i joined this website my photography has improved no end. Thank you to all the crew and others who have helped.

    Another appeal highlight

    You may think this a personal question, but is the screener on drugs? Is he a cast off Anet screener, or just a plain old wind up mercahnt? "Over processed", behave yourselves.

    O what fun it must be to check the emails every morning (or afternoon, or everning). I dont envy your job, i would loose my temper and become unprofessional with people who write messages like that. We get alot of people making funny comments like that at work, luckily they are at the other end of a telephone and we can just cut them off and we dont have to listen to them.

    Can we have some of the nice emails you guys and girls are sent to please so we can smile?

    New gem to be added to that list of weird appeal messages.

    First we get a real piece of crock as photo, which is correctly rejected. There are a million things you can write, but this here won't help:
    You are crazy! You are blind!
    Needless to say, the appeal was not accepted.
