If you mean "
RUBBISH THIS is the ONLY site I am a member of that does NOT have direct upload" then "I think there are worse inconveniences in life"

All i said is RUBBISH it is a general and acceptable term, how would you have said rubbish please enlighten me.

Personally, I'd avoid saying "Rubbish" to other people's views, unless I thought they were specifically trying to be offensive.
I'd tend to say something that gave the message "Clearly my views are somewhat different to yours, but that's fine" rather than "You're totally incorrect, and I'm not".

The word 'Rubbish' in response to someone's opinion does 2 things. Firstly it dismisses someone's opinion, and declares it worthless. It does so without reason or argument, or any kind of explanation. In this context it is an arrogant and thoughtless thing to say. It adds nothing to the discussion.

Secondly it also has the effect of dismissing the person who said it. It lowers their self-value to the forum, and means they are very likely not to want to post their opinions again. The result is that fewer people post, and the usefulness of the forum is decreased.

If the the word 'Rubbish' is indeed thought to be a 'general and acceptable term' in our society, then that is depressing, but quite possibly true. A forum, however, is a place to discuss - not a place to dismiss statements, opinions or beliefs with a word. It should not be used here.

I hope I have shed a little light for you Eizo, and you will consider a more measured response when you come across things you don't agree with.

Now Photobucket has gone premium and you have to pay for space, Flickr is better:

I can't get the img tag to work, though:
