I have noticed that in the amateurmicrography/photomacrography forum, fellow members of this forum have been commenting on posts that they have already seen here. Though some might see this merely as the encouragement of a fellow forum member it has a distorted effect on the other posters of images of that forum, keeping them down the visible order.
I think that as a matter of courtesy if we have already seen and or commented on an image we should refrain from doing so again.

So, you are actually commenting on forum etiquette for that forum on this forum?

Have you always been a control freak, or just getting started? :lol:

I have to second what Kurt and apo said.

If the other forum's comments stimulated my scientific curiosity and I wanted to comment on it, am I allowed to do so? If I comment again, would that comment put an otherwise excellent image from another memeber/thread, for example Charles Krebs's image, beyond people's notice?

Do I have to abandon my right of free speech, to obey some not-so-well-established "etiquette"?

I am not sure other members mind duplicated comments. I myself certainly don't mind, even if my own thread is pushed down by those comments.

Maybe 75RR can ask forum administrators and get back to us, if such "etiquette" is needed.

Hmm, 75 - I'm finding it hard to see your point my friend - I disagree with your premise old chap. :)

This is not about free speech - it is about manners.

Sorry to hear that.

No worries 75 old chap - you'll not be the only one to think this I'm sure - it's subjective as are most things my friend! :D :D :)

The original post is flawed and should be removed from this forum, because it has nothing to do with this forum. The targeted members, are also members of the other forum, as I am. If there is a grievance between members of the photomacrography.net/amateurmicrography.net forum, the grievance should be raised on that forum and not here.
There is nothing appropriate about this . I do not see the same appeal on the very forum it is about. It is an attempt to hide the grievance from the more general view of that other forum, where I suspect there would be at least the same level of dismissal, plus the risk of having ones bubble somewhat deflated.
Oliver, could you please remove this in the same manner that you would erase any irrelevant or spurious post.

I can't agree with your sentiments here apo', although I'm sure you won't lose any sleep for knowing that. I personally think that your suggestion for the removal of 75's post is a shabby one and not an appropriate manner in which to treat a valued and consistently (far more may I say than yourself) contributing and friendly forum regular such as he undoubtedly is.

Ignore this unnecessary attempt at escalation 75' my friend - I suspect apo' may be having a bad day. :roll:

Whilst I don't see 75's perspective re the point he has made, I am totally in support of his right (an earned right in my opinion and I'm certain that of many others here) to express it here.

That's my tuppence-worth fellows. :)

The issue is entirely related to the other forum. Has nothing to do with microbehunter.com.
