We have a couple of persistent pests, incorrectly called trolls, an
occasional real troll wanders by, but by and large even old Joe McC
wouldn't have bothered.

Communist types? um, what does that have to do with cameras?

and yet, oh gobby one, whoever you are, none of that has anything to
do with photography. Might as well have said too many
black/red/yellow/small/fat/thin people. If you want to talk about
ignorance then surely this sort of blanket statement is the problem?
Who the hell says we 'encourage others to make our decisions for us'

have you seen the people running the UK at the moment? Communists?
hah.

Well, consider the source. Jane appears to have named herself after a
character in one of Ayn Rand's ultra-capitalist screeds. Everything looks
yellow to a jaundiced eye.

Not that the group actually is infested with communist types, but that
wouldn't preclude a viable discussion about photo topics. After all, the
Exakta was made in East Germany. ;^)

Good description. In the U.S., the type is personified by those who support
the "Tea Party" movement and who voted for George Bush.

To Jane, you have to be far right of a Republican to avoid the "communist"
label...

Take Care,

One wonders if any of the parts used by the makers of the SD34000IS
were made in Communist China. The owners of most cameras purchase
something imported from China, whether it be camera bag or accessory.

I'm sure Ms Galt is a Communist sympathizer and supports that evil
regime with some of her purchases. She should be pilloried by a
Congressional committee.

Of course that camera, as with a number of others was conceived and
built prior to wwii.
As for the communist bit, I assume our Jane resides on the US side of
the pond where they wouldn't know a communist if they woke up in bed
with one and know even less the philosophical basis of the movement.
In fact, most can't distinguish between the terms communist, fascist,
atheist, democracy, capitalist etc. and cavalierly throw these terms
around to those with whom they disagree, intending such as an insult
rather rather than any true meaning of the terms. But who cares.
