When you're obsessed with the death of digital medium format, your response to every thread is the same.

Often, it is a nail. Especially when it enters your tyre. The hammer may then be or not be useful to you. But the nail remains a nail. Because it is.

You can also take the nail and use it as a little chisel and chip away at some misconceptions and counter the barrage
of marketing BS.

It cuts both ways.

You can also look at the user of the hammer/nail/chisel----and expose that thin veneer that hides the barrage of extreme bias and paternalistic BS.

The same audience that you think is *fooled* by so-called "marketing BS" is the same audience that just might contain a few critical thinkers who can also see the bias and shallowness of the allegations being made.

"Some take the hammer to the nail and make something....like progress."

And some, as the saying suggests, hit every damn thing with the hammer, because that's all they have.

Others, of course, don't even understand the saying.

Problem is, the more advanced carpenter uses screws.

Nails in coffins if from the middle-ages.
