I don't even know where to start with this. It's disgusting. [View all]

So I'm searching the net for rumors and news on the Canon R7 camera. The guy who started and owns the website Canonrumors.com signed off today and is selling the site because:

I donít care if anyone comes at me, Iím a big boy and very few of you would ever say it to my face, so I generally donít care about the cowards and fanboys.

However, yesterday they came at my children and my wife. They came at my familyÖ.. little fanboys of certain YouTubers that have obviously been raised horribly. What was in my inbox I wonít even show my wife. Iím tearing up writing this with absolute disgust for how horrible people are becoming. All of this is created by the personalities (I refuse to call them creators), they feed off of it, they profit off of it and they donít care.

I have over the years had to deal with blowback from things said on OTHER websites and on YouTube channels. Yesterday was the tipping point. There are so many liars, grifters, and generally awful people polluting this niche little industry.


What the everlovin' fuck people?? This kind of vitriol over a website catering to photo hobbyists?

He's selling the site and moving on but for Christ's sake what is happening to us?

Shout out to Earl G--if some guy on a camera website gets this kind of grief what must you be dealing with?? I sure hope you can deal with it 'cause DU isn't just a discussion board, it's family for a whole lot of us.
