I’m not interested in Royalty, but I love old photographs. Today I came across a forum for people who are obsessed with Royal families and it is a motherlode of vintage photos.
An unexpected bonus is the number of arguments that break out between the people who post there. I wonder if people have to argue in online forums. Maybe it’s just the competitive nature of people who are proud of their expertise.
My husband reads a forum for audiophiles and he says they don’t argue there. I’m surprised that guys who can tell the difference between five different masters of a Jimi Hendrix record can accept each other’s opinions without jockeying for authority. But moderators are there to end discussions, so who knows what would happen if the posters were left alone to boast about their rare Japanese boxed sets of obscure Eric Clapton demos.
Check out “Alexander Palace Time Machine” for amazing photos and petty arguments! Start here.
