This is photography, not often a life & death matter or anything to get miffed over.
As Bill Shankly famously said,
"Football is not a matter of life and death.....
.....it is much more important than that!"
I guess some of the professionals see photography in a similar vein.
But I am with you - the vast majority of us are amateurs who look down our noses at those who prostitute their art for filthy lucre (and get over serious on this wee chat-room).
