You're not a journalist Andrea--you're a promoter...

No Andrea, you're not a journalist, you're just another promoter on retainer to dive magazines masquerading as a journalist.
Journalists analyze. Promoters tell lies. That's the difference and it's an important one. There is also a significant difference between dive industry masturbation -- the Antibes Underwater Image Festival -- and the Pulitzer Prize for excellence in journalism. When you get a Pulitzer, you earn the right to boast. But when you win a dive industry photo contest, it's equivalent to rubbing thighs with porn stars.
After witnessing the destruction caused by a barge that was there because the dive industry wants toilets on Sipadan, you voted for more sh*t. That's because you are a promoter and not a journalist and not a conservationist.
You really should be ashamed of yourself.
