There's lots of exchange of ideas going on. You just don't happen to like
Pretty thin skin you have-- but very common. I know criticism is out of
style these days-- replaced, sadly, by sentimental impressionism and relativism--
but just what kind of discussions do you like?
For me, I get tired of passive/aggressive, mindless gushing about things.
Kodachrome is a great example of this, because it has been surrounded by such a
huge mythology. It seems to have replaced mom and dad for some people.
If you don't like this, you should see some of the arguments on the photo
sites. Kodachrome sentimentalists having the audacity to argue violently with
the chemists and technicians who invented it!
 Why this happens all the time I don't get.

Re: The Return of Kodachrome:

I adore Kodachrome, I still have some even, that is unshot, so much
do I wish to not part with it. To me it just smells of history and
everything good. A red toy truck only looks like a red toy truck on
Kodachrome. But boy, these discussions are tiresome. There is no
exchange of ideas going on, it's the firmly convinced railing against
the equally firmly convinced. The kind of discussion that makes me
regret having (once again) resubscribed to Frameworks....even in
digest form!
