This is the way I see it. Photographers that want to see and talk about real photo shoots will get on a photography forum to discuss and show off there photos.
I've posted photos in the past on both car forums and photo forums. I some cases the guys in the car forums think you are that guys stepping out of the limo just because you threw a HDR image together. On the photo forums it's a whole other ballgame. If I posted the same haloed HDR image they would trash talk about it.
It's all relative to the audience. They will learn what level they really are on in time. I like to encourage people to learn more about the technical side and the basics. Everyone has to start somewhere.
