I re-submitted the comment with the correct spelling, that's why it is in the comment list now.

Going off topic, but a lot of my work involves projects for the UK, Australia, and South Africa... and dang if I don't get nailed on those points again and again.

Don't worry, Microsoft Office is teaching young Australians American-English exceptionally well! There's that reliance on a spell checker again!

Whoever is that concerned about a misspelling in a comment on their photo needs to get over themselves. Sorry, that was personal again.



So they dole out reasons why your pictures are rejected, but they can't give you an explanation as to why your comment is rejected? Who here has won a spelling bee or is anal enough to run everything through spell checker? Come on.

If they're going to reject just about everything, then give us reasons. Otherwise the site needs to get over itself.
I think either Mr. Shi-ku whatever or Danneeeeeee boy is aliasing again....

'Course, we'll probably never know why the comment was actually rejected.

Chalk it up as another one of those "behind the scenes mysteries" at railpictures.
Charles....if I remember you correctly you seem to take it on yourself to constantly ''attempt'' to ream this site. You feed the conspiracy theory that RP is out to get everyone, just look at a former user who talks to himself about RP on a Yahoo group where he is the only member. Why are you even here? Take off the tin foil hat...
