Yes it is a sad state.
I have been aware of this site for years and one thing I have noticed is the constant going on over led especially it being dragged into genuine posts, also as it has been said befor the off topic has become more dominant and if this site turns more like a social media site them that will enevitably show the problems associated with it.

Saddened that a clampdown has become necessary.

LG is one of the best discoveries of my life, having joined almost 8 years ago. There are as many differences of opinion within lighting as there are lamp types, but what brings us all together, our collective enthusiasm for our preferred lamps, gear and fittings, speaks far louder than what divides us.

Likewise, LG is an extraordinarily broad church of personalities and mindsets most of which intersect harmoniously but with any organisation such as ours the fringe element can occasionally get a little out of hand, but is usually tidied up discreetly behind the scenes.

If someone elseís opinion makes us angry, a pause for thought is crucial before we reply, we can still  make our point constructively and with consideration to everyone else who might read it, thus preserving our own image as well as that of this site to others.

I read with interest the comments above regarding LED technologies. Yes they are just another form of lighting. While it is sad that traditional, tried and trusted technologies seem to be getting brushed aside at the pace they are, regrettably technology cannot conveniently stand still for us, it does mean our relationship with our cherished lighting will evolve to that of preserving and maintaining what we have and can continue to rescue. For those of us that cannot sit comfortably with this, LED cannot and will not take our collections from us, but may provide lighting solutions where none existed in the past.

Lighting Brings Us Together, letís remember this each time we post,  letís keep LG strong, clean and proud

The original thread has been split up since the replies were starting to deviate from the topic matter at hand, which was important. I've locked the original thread and moved all the replies here. Concerns may be posted here provided that they are within the site's code of conduct and relevant to the topic at hand. And please don't ask who or where or why because we cannot divulge any of those details as it would breach our confidentiality policy. Thanks in advance.

You might include the same usual crowd that seems to band together and ignore a member because of their personal belief. It's funny to watch them band together like thieves in the night if you express yourself on something and they do not like your stance. All while networking together like spoiled bored children. We live in a country of free speech and only the socialists want to take that away. This site is for everyone and not just a "few" who intentionally post everything and anything in order to get their member status rank increased. I have seen members leave or quit posting because of that issue and that is exactly what these hooligans want. It is a little disgusting to watch them play while they consider themselves "experts".   

I agree 100%. There are also members who post horrible quality photos. Why bother posting a blurry photo of a fixture? If we can barely even tell what the photo is of, we don't need to see that crap on the site. It's just taking up space that could be a quality photo of something we actually want to look at.

I think they are using "google maps" to go to cities and photograph fixtures.

Either way. They're still blurry and I can barely tell what the fixture is. There's a photo that I think was recently posted that is terribly blurry. It doesn't appear to be from Google it looks like it was just bad photography. I won't try to find the photo though because I'm not trying to target anybody. Just bringing up the fact that we need to be posting photos members actually want to see. Not just some crappy photo to get your status numbers up.

Sounds rather immature. If you don't like someone stance go out and say something rather than completely ignoring and ostracized someone like a bunch of p*ssy's. forgive my rather harsh use of language.
