Personally, I don't have a problem with him. He chooses to do things his own way and he's grown TSF into what it is today and good luck to him for that. He publishes some useful information albeit usually littered with spelling mistakes and bad grammar, but that's a personal gripe because I think if you're an admin of a forum you should lead by example.
Where I draw the line is as stated above - interfering with other peoples business like complaining about photographers who choose to distribute their work freely. It's up to them what they do with their photographs, not him. I wouldn't pay him a penny for any of his work on principle.
Also I never liked his style of forum admin, TSF feels like a rouge state with a dictator at the helm. Hopefully Snooker Island is a contrast for people who don't like TSF and an environment which makes them feel they can be themselves and say what they want to say (within reason - see forum rules
) without further recrimination like removal of posts and topics without warning and without good reason.
