Recently, there have been several threads on some of the other photography (photography interest) Australian forums, where members are bagging the other forums, for various reasons.
The overall view I get, and others who have pointed them out to me, or discussed them with me, is that it looks bad. Seeing a heap of members being negative about another forum, often with only one-sided views. In my view nothing good can come of these.
In a global sense, Australia is a small place and the photographically interested people are often members of more than one forum. The photography forums are all unique, but at the same time often have similar concepts in competitions, member interactions, forum titles, topics etc.
Should we have a 'no negative discussion about other photography forums' rule on AP?
AP in general is not a place to whinge, as we like to promote a positive place for members to share their photography. So should we have a rule against posts/threads that denigrate other photography forums?
