May be not what you expected but interesting nevertheless. Some nice E-Mails from the last days that we screeners are getting in response to the screening results.
"Buy some glasses the picture is of very good Quality"
and so on.
Sometimes its really fun

Well, I highly doubt that anyone writing those emails even gets pictures on this site. Lack of maturity like that would probably also result in really bad picture taking.
There's another message board that I've been a member of for over 3 years (I'm considered an elder), and I get hate mail regularly from random ghost email addresses, and I also get hate e-cards. I almost enjoy it. I know that if I'm not getting them, that I'm not being myself on the boards!
As for the screeners, if you are getting comments like those, then you know that you're doing a good job of screening and not being leniant. GOOD JOB GUYS!!!

I might start uploading airport buses, posters stuck on my walls and pictures of women taken in airport terminals again - I was hurt and immeasurably dissatisfied that my last batch were rejected. This site obviously doesn't know anything about aviation
Speaking of which, I recently had this picture rejected and it was taken within 1000km of an airport so I think it's perfectly acceptable

I really appreciate what Anet has done to promote many aspects of aviation hobbies. I feel like a guest when I enter as it is free service and can not imagine being disrespectful. The ability to showcase what I enjoy doing and improve my skills have been great. Making new friends is wonderful. I would support those that cannot maintain decorum be given a warning subsequently banned for a repeat outburst. They can go to other sites. I have enjoyed Anet for some time and got a first class membership to support keeping it on the web. but, I still remain respectful and have disdain for those that trash it.

Paul / Sukhoi hit the nail on the head - I don't get stressed about the insults, but all the screeners do this for free, for the "benefit" (depending on how you percieve it!) of the site and the photographers. When we get messages like that, I start to think "I don't need to give up my free time just to be insulted - why should I bother?" I can clearly recall at least a couple of occasions where I had a couple of hours free, was planning on screening, read my e-mail first, and after being insulted (again) decided I'd got better things to do. Whilst constructive criticism is always acceptable, the insults from a few bad apples can end up impacting the silent and supportive minority.
25 Ckw: I think Andy makes a very important point - this sort of bad behaviour is not just a problem for the screeners to deal with - its a problem that impac
26 Fireguy274: I think a person who sends insulting or rude emails should be warned once perhaps and then promptly loose all rights to the site on the second offense

35 Bronko: What is the email flow like? When someone sends an email to screeners@, do all screeners read it? Maybe someone could volunteer to screen the screener
36 Granite: Hi all What really get's people mad are the rejection messages. People have to realise that every rejected message cannot be replied to personally. If
37 9A-CRO: Of course it all can't be replied personally but if screeners took a few more seconds and select two or three boxes instead of bascan it would be much
38 Granite: Tomislav I think the we, the screeners, do this anyway but badscan encompasses a few reasons. We will try to take this into account while screening. R

48 MIAMIx707: hey Adel you've been lost man? whats up with you? I have to agree with Zoomer's comments above. I would also reject about 40% if not more of everythin
