Yes, I think a repeat in the replies are what is so bothersome. Usually if I see there are so many, I just go to another post. Surely we can reply without duplicating all the photos each time.

I love looking at the photo's! Especially if I don't have time to read all the post...a picture tells a thousand words right?

Hey, wonderful answers everyone and I've come to one conclusion...you all are just a GREAT bunch of people here in this community!! I love how everyone is in agreement that one can either enjoy it or scroll on by without a care as there is so much to choose from here in the DC forum to please everyone. That's what I was hoping for because I just didn't want to be an annoyance. By posing my concerns to the community, I've gotten a good idea of how these types of threads are received here. And thankyou to the site moderators for allowing me to ask my questions to all.

And I agree that hitting the quote button that reposts all the same photos over again is not a good thing. I haven't seen anyone do that here in the DC forum since I've been here so, cross our fingers, I think we're all on the same page.

i'm all for as many original pics that can be posted of a topic, especially food porn.

but for quoting someone, i like to think of it this way: pictures are worth a thousand words, so do you really need quote a thousand words that someone else had previously posted to add your 2 cents, often just a line of approval?
O Fortune, like the moon you are changeable.
Ever waxing, ever waning.
Hateful life; first oppresses, and then it soothes, as fancy takes it; poverty and power. It melts them like ice.

Though old, this is a really lovely thread that I've found most encouraging because presently I'm preparing a topic of pics of my home.

You can forget what a person looks like, and you can forget what they say. But you will never forget how they made you feel.
