I was completly unaware of anything even going on.
I'm not even going to buy into the debate on banning or Steve's actions as I have no insite what-so-ever into it, nor do I desire to know.
I just wanted to say thanks to Steve for all the knowledge and humor that he has shared with the forum and it's members.
When I first started visiting this forum and another, I PM'ed Steve with a simple question regarding his set-up for birding his reply was exahaustive and full of good suggestions for photography in general, covering things like mettering, focus, gears and the list goes on.
We must have sent 6-8 PM's to-and-fro for a few days. Each time Steve giving a delailed and lengthy reply to my questions. Steve didn't have to do this, but obviously being the helpful type, he did, and for that I am grateful to him.
I'm sure his input will be missed, as I for one will miss it.
Thanks Steve for all that you have shared with me.
Edit: Sorry for the OT post in your thread Glen, hope you don't mind?
