Default F'ing RailPictures! (NSFW)

Gotta give it to Bill Salton (NiagaraRailfan) for proving just how seriously some people take this stuff. How whacked out does a person need to be to take the time to create something like this because an internet website rejected a few of his superior train pics?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=704091052

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, here's the sum total of the spectacular work he's had rejected:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=904414&key=0
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=904052&key=0
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=903603&key=0

I replied to Bill just to assure him that 1. she is kinda hot (though her arms appear kinda hairy.. probably a Canadian thing) and 2. I had a good laugh and am not upset aboot it.

Hope to hear back from you, Bill!

P.S. I wish my spelling was as good as yours!

You have to take life with a sense of humor, right? (Or is it "humour" above the 49th Parallel?)

Now, if you just let the JAWS picture in, I won't have to create my own t-shirt line with such catchy titles as --

"I find myself in disagreement with one of the screeners"

and

"I'm backing over my 40D now to stop this pain forever."

I guess there are a lot of weird people out there. They vote too and look where that got us.

I don't understand how someone gets so infuriated whenever their photos are rejected? Not to say that I haven't gotten mad once or twice before, but never to such extents.

And I thought Canadians were supposed to be nice? Not explosively flamboyant.

Lightbulb That is just too funny.

That is awesome!!

Maybe Dan Valentine and he can start a self help Site - Get-A-Life dot com.

I suppose he will show up on Obs Car next and then get banned after a month just like the original agitator.

I like how he didn't even clone or crop out the date on some of the photos.

Classic!

Lets sick Steven on him.

What would drive a person to have a mental breakdown like that? I sure hope he's got some meds to take. Poor fella.

Chris, how do you know that Billster8724 and TheNiagaraRailfan are the same person? Are they connecting from the same network ID?

The scanned page out of the Kama Sutra book on the topic of, umm, "creative self pleasing" with the caption "Here are some instructions on how to go f*** yourselves!" will always be my all time favorite!

Perhaps the person could be forced to sing a verse or two for extreme padre fan and the group.

LOL.. Don't you love the perks of being an administrator on the most well known railroad photo database?

At least it doesn't look like you're losing much talent...

Credit where credit is due, thats a pretty good one.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Hey, to top it off, you could send him back and post on the forums a pic of one of you screeners and your gf/wife.

Peter,

Why would you want to send some psycho a pic of your better half? These guys have nothing to prove to him.
