Spirirted back-forth, as long as it doesn't get personal, is interesting and can, for many people considering a future move to MF (or downsizing from MF to 'that' camera) I suspect be FAR more enlightening than brand/format-centric electronic group hugs. Some of the debate responses on both sides can be, shall we say, interesting.
Now some of the comments (on both sides) can be repetitive and often unwarranted in their tone, BUT the term 'hijack' is too loosely bandied about in forums. It's only a 'hijack' if people respond to what they percieve as 'bait', blasphemy, propaganda or a 'you've got to be kidding' comment. It's often like watching carpenters name-calling during arguements about hammers vs. nail guns when 90% of them use both to do the same thing.
