I've been off on one. I'm still off on one, I think. TongueWink

I haven't written anything for several weeks because I got fed up with being told that I couldn't form questions in blogs. I started to become paranoid about whether or not I had included a ? mark in what I'd written.
I don't know whether blogs [generally] are monitored.
I don't know whether it is my blogs which are monitored.
If my blogs are being monitored, maybe it means that I have a black mark against my name. SadSad Wink Aaaaaagh !! GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
It may be that there is a 'system-programmed mechanism' to identify ? marks in a blog, and issue an auto warning that ''questions are not permitted in blogs and must be asked in the forums.''

I have no intention of asking why questions are not permitted in blogs, as a forum thread.
It seems that such a course of action will merely result in a possible acrimonious outcome, and quite honestly I have had enough of reading forum threads where people are bitching at one another.

Whether I renew my e2 subscription on 7th April remains to be seen - at the moment I am undecided.
Whether I continue to peruse the forums also remains to be seen. I do get fed up of some of the cattiness that takes place between apparent grown-ups on there.
I do enjoy viewing the photo main gallery, and learn much from doing so.
The critique gallery I mostly keep well clear of these days. It just is not worth the risk.

It seems to me a great pity that I am not allowed to form a question in the course of the admittedly sometimes inane ramblings, within my Blogs - particularly when there is neither a hidden agenda nor intent to denegrate or offend - but so be it.

I think I will probably stay 'off-on-one' GrinGrinGrin for the time being, until I get it out of my system. WinkSmile
Stand on the sidelines and watch the action.
Keep my mouth shut and my thoughts to myself.
I joined ePz because I enjoyed my photography (puerile as it was) and I enjoyed the site.
Until that returns, I shall keep my questions, ambiguous or otherwise, to myself.
I still enjoy my photography [puerile as it remains] and that's the most important thing.
Isn't it?

And guess what's just popped up on the Preview [I won't include a question mark]

''Attention: Blogs are for diary style posts only. Please do not post here if you are just posting to link to your own site, or are asking a question (please ask questions in the forum)''

???
If you are referring to the header we added it was not addressed directly at you. It was to prevent people coming in who're new and don;'t understand the blog principles and just post "I've just started photography which camera/ lens should I buy/" Type questions. That's not the idea of blogs.
