There does seem to be a lack of respect and common courtesy here - unlike other photography forums I frequent (far more often) like FM and POTN. I'm not entirely sure why, but I'd be interested to hear people's thoughts.

The main differences I can see are:
- the other photography forums are dedicated photography forums
- the other forums would have a much older average age (just an observation)

I suspect it's mainly a maturity issue, but also because for some reason IT-related demographics seem to be more willing to become keyboard warriors IMO. The rest of the OCAU forums seem to display the same lack of respect and common courtesy (a lot of the time the forums almost seem to be a vehicle for people to show how much of a smartass they can be), so without a code of conduct I think it'd be an uphill battle to change anything here - unfortunately.
Sometimes people bring their baggage from other forums into the photography forum as well.

I have seen some right arseholes post some superb pictures here!
