I can only conclude that some well-educated, intelligent experts here must have had a sense of humor surgically removed at birth?
Maybe they just have not exactly the same sense of humor...
The demonstration of a 24x36 velvia scan being flat equivalent to 192MP (or so) was rather quite high an odd-degree humor, to say the least. As it used the MTF graph without even blinking at that MTF was not even plotted at the frequency used (and he extrapolated it to 20%), it's some kind of humor that I find only mean, really laughing of people that just did not learn what a MTF is and how to use it (Norman Koren is may be not as much entertaining for the masses, but he did explain that already long ago for anyone willing to read).
That, or he uses these satire alerts to excuse for incompetence - you choose.
Ditto for the sRGB part - tossing color management over board is not going to help many people.
Humor is a good reason to write funny things (in which I personally hesitate to file the F2 bit), but a bad excuse to write BS.

That fight the established values and deliberatly provocative.
Well, I'd think it takes arguments to fight established values...
