YES, please just get along.
I understand Dan Burns point of view as a member he has every
right to express it. If we all jump on the Massimo ban wagon then
this is not a social group.

As a new member I would
like to thank Massimo for a well written and respectful
request for dialogue. I'm not sure what Sue's thoughts are
behind her request for just 12 pictures per member, per event,
but I hope that we can all wait for her response.
Next, I also hope that emails back and forth with sniping
disguised as "polite discourse" stop. I have left other
meet-ups when situations like this devolved into further
nastier exchanges between just a few people, but which
occurred in the public forum.
Each person has a right to their opinion and I'm guessing that
Massimo didn't write his email as a request for others to give
him advice on how to become a better photographer. That
wasn't the point at all. Massimo simply asked for
clarification. I think that should be respected.
Everyone has their own style of learning. What might be a
"beginner's" shot for one person, might be a step-up for
someone else. While perusing national magazines may be
something that one person finds educational, it may not work
for the next person. An opinion is an opinion, but peppering
that opinion with judgement and unsolicited advice is not the
way to further polite conversation.
Yes, yes, this is my request for everyone to please just get
along. In the end, no one regrets the unpleasant things they
did not say~
Sue, please weigh in so that we can put this behind us and
move on to the next planned event~
