Why do the pictures keep disappearing?
Without them and the comments with them, context is lost.

Whoops! They are still there in the new version of TOTV.
Just not for this user of the old version!

Pick up your tee after your shot. Do not critique the other players. However, saying “Great shot “ is always welcomed. Rake up bunker after your shot. These are some ways to keep pace of play and will make the game more enjoyable.
One thing I would add. If you are playing a par 4 or 5, you don't have to wait for the group in front of you to get off the green before hitting. Usually, once they have hit their second shot and moved on, you are good to go.

It's about fun! So tuck your ego into a dark recess of your golf bag and play the tees where at times you hit 5 out of 9 greens in regulation...then move back. if you find you only hit one or two from there then move back to the greens.

Not only will you have more fun, but you'll learn more. If you think it's about hitting longer clubs because it's more challenging then...nope...check that ego back into the bag. It's about the swing...only the swing. The score will come if you are able. if not then stick to the tees where you hit more greens in regulation or at least closer to it. it'll be more fun...you'll appear less foolish and you'll make everyone feel like celebrating when you hit a g.i.r.
How about you play your round, and I’ll play mine? Enjoy the scenery. If you are such a championship player, consider sticking to the championship courses.

Default Pick a tee

Just pick a tee enjoy and play at a reasonable pace. Keep it simple. Some people tune up their game on the executive courses by playing different yardages. It’s no big deal.

Hey Tiger, get over yourself. I think people should know the etiquette of playing golf and pick up when 3 over par, but in our setting it's time to relax and have fun! We're not on the pro tour here! Why do you care what tee someone plays from as long as they don't hold up the game and pick up when appropriate. I think most people do that. What's your hurry?? If it bothers you so much why don't you just play with your friends who have the same skill level as you?

Understand, but on the other hand if one never challenges oneself playing a game (its just a game) why would we expect people to challenge oneself in real life. Progress in life usually comes from challenging oneself.

It's their life their choice why would you find that in your words Humorous ?
Ridiculing others abilities publicly
I find busy bodies who's sole purpose is to demean others more humorous

well sometimes the guy playing FAST is the problem. Some players play for enjoyment not to see how quickly they can get back to the clubhouse. Pushing the pace is just as wrong as slowing it

In general, although I'm sure there are exceptions, a good golfer will never ridicule a poor golfer, especially a beginner.

Fast is not a problem: If he is ahead of you, you won't see him. If he is behind you, he has to wait. If he hits into you, tell the ambassador. Slow is the problem, and at all levels of golf. Bryson DeChambeau and Jordan Spieth are notoriously slow touring pros. Some golfers in the Villages (and elsewhere) emulate them (like they're going to shoot a 59). Yesterday, the group ahead of us was 2 holes behind. When the ambassador came by on the 18th hole he asked how the round was---answer, it was fine. It was better for the group ahead of us who never waited for a single shot, even though we waited on every tee and every approach shot. Still played in 2 minutes less than the card time.
