A new thread with a new name and completely different topic spins
off of our presently infamous troll thread.... And our troll
promptly hijacks the new thread, cuts out all the original content
and "returns the discussion" to his (or her) one and only talking
>From our troll's perspective, the new thread had to die, and it had
to die fast: I cast Adobe-sanctioned certification programs in a
bad light, and I reported a real world observation of Photoshop
losing its monopoly status in the professional image composition market.
An oblique response to the content of my thread-starter post?
"Gimp will stay a software for amateurs." That's an irrational
counter-argument to the plain fact that the GIMP can and does
successfully compete with Photoshop in the professional graphics
world. The fact that I am paid to use it is living proof.
