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"
"Fu(k you"
and so on.
Sometimes its really fun  Wow!  Wow!  Wow!

There are lots of stupid people out there. This is really unacceptable! I think the writers of these mails should have their images removed from the database and they should be banned forever!

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!!!

Well, yeah, I guess I can see that.

It's a shame, but if I were a screener, I don't think it's anything to stress. Such a person obviously has social defects, we might as well watch and be entertained, right?

I'd love to learn of the progressed photographers (if any) that write these emails. I hope it's no one I'm a fan of!

"Buy some glasses if you think the picture is good" is just about literally what one of the early screeners commented to me on rejecting one of my pictures...

If you consider it an insult if someone advises you to get some glasses, I want to know what you think of a long-time screener here using the same language against photographers?

But do keep in mind that the screeners are the ones that are correct. I must say that I remember some of your rejections, and you were saying that they were pin sharp. They werent.

If you don't like it, don't do it, nobody is forced to be a screener, easy.

Anyway, why give attention to those people?, by giving them attention it's their goal, you feed them, they strike back.

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  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

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.
