So much 411 here! So that really cleared up a lot. The Chuck Norris style jokes were a good laugh.

Thanks all, I'm unplugging for the night. See you tomorrow.

KR is the poster child for "how to monetize your blog."

He has some good ideas, and some outrageous shill moments. Caveat lectorum...

Time to stir up the waters again ....

If I could only banish one operation from the interwebs
for being "bad for photography" it would not be KR. Cuz
having to choose only one, Tony Northrup is the obvious
most outstanding candidate.

His site is all about earning money. Every new camera, lens etc etc receives a rave review one of which resulted in the comment "What did Nikon professional photographers do before the d810 was introduced?"
