    This was another guy, who would upload every single photo as hot photo, completely overexposed, unlevel and soft photos and I don't remember what. After having gone bananas with appeals and mails and so on .... and when we thought, this could not be topped ... he completely flipped out, when he saw a photo accepted, which in his opinion was unethic (A346 accident in TLS). He completely freaked out and called us ... in one of his hard to understand mails .... "band of rods". I still don't know, what he meant, but it was fun to read.

    However this guy mentioned above is worse, as he still thinks, he was right and still sent us mails until yesterday explaining, we were wrong. You know, one of those who believe, the earth is flat Unfortunately, his mails stink and are not funny to post here anymore. So, let's wait for another egghead.

    You're asking for volunteers to piss you off? If so I suppose I could possibly get myself pissed and bang on the keyboard a few times. Don't know what will come out of it, but it will be fun and memorable.

    If you tie a rubber band around your rod, you can make it bigger

    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.

    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?

    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.

    I have had a few angry moments myself but i realize i am an amateur photographer and i learn a lot from the comments/rejections. I aint going to curse people who are taking valuable time off of their personal life to screen my pics.

    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 !!
