You've not been hit enough by the nice capture bandits obviously. Im talking about the ones who do it in passing, and across 100s of images they barely stop to look at. Comment whores, thinking they'll get some back and maybe hit explore with a 'capture' of their painted fingernails or something. If someone says it under my image alone I appreciate it, the fact they actually looked. I'm not a compliment chaser, often get more out of constructive criticism
I assume you are talking about Flickr? In which case I would question what you expect to get out of Flickr given that, well... it is what it is and probably forever will be.
Personally I just use it for hosting and browsing. I add to the odd group, tags are minimal and I don't get a cold, lonely feeling when most of my photos have between 0 and 10 views.
If I get a sparkly medal or 'Better than God' award then I smile and maybe laugh a little... but I never expect to find the meaning of life, photographically speaking, via comments left on my photos.
As for "great shot, must be a great camera" - I just smile... not worth bothering about.
