    Hi James,

    I understand your concerns, I will just remove this post if you like? As it is causing more hassle than it is worth in all honesty.. I will point out, as I clearly state on the article it's just my opinion on what I have used and why I'd recommend the products I have used. It is NOT a review of each particular item.

    Yes, I have learnt that a more in depth article would be best and I respect and appreciate your comments and feedback....I will actually take this on board as I enjoy writing and thank you. However it would be more well appreciated if it were in a less-sarcastic or patronising manor, especially being a DN community staff member James. I've noticed on a few posts a similar style of response from yourself.

    Like I stress, I state multiple times it is my brief findings and that of my opinion on what I have used/learnt. I understand your advertorial concerns, however I was only trying to be helpful, after all isn't this the point of DN? I understand if I've been "reported" by a certain someone, but I don't think I'm the only one who found SOME of his comments ridiculous and unnecessary. Please notice the entire thread to this article.

    I am always open to change and reason, but it has to be backed up with some substance. If you notice in the comments of the story and this post I am always open to learning new things and regularly talk with my fellow creatives :) I enjoy feedback wether that being good or bad, its what makes me better as a creative :)

    Thanks again for your time, I respect DN very much and enjoy being a part of it.

      I'm not removing this post, I don't think it's necessary. I just thought I'd let you know what I've done and why I've done it.

      As far as I know, you haven't been reported as such, and even if you were, it would have no impact on a moderator's decision (mine or others).

      The second part of my reply was my opinion. I apologise if you thought it came across as sarcastic, that wasn't my intention and never is - blunt and to the point is the best way of saying something imo, I'm not going to pussyfoot around anyone just in case I hurt their feelings.

        Okay no problems :)

        I appreciate that, definitely don't "pussyfoot" at all, be straight, I'd rather you do that :) Just maybe be more friendly with folk and less aggressive and sarcy, i doesn't give a good impression from a DN staff member tbh. After all isn't DN's motto "be nice...or else" :)
