Why would I have a chip on my shoulder?

You are presuming I'm asian? On what basis??

What does that even mean?

Unless it means the chip is pretty firmly attached?

Not one single post even referenced his race until you did.

... none of those things you mention.

It's just that some idiots have a habit of dragging innocent bystanders into the forum as an "argument from authority". As in "so-and-so does this, so it must be good".

Firstly, it's a stupid form of argument, and secondly it always results in people questioning the authority of that "authority".

Which is an inevitable response.

On the Fuji forum an innocent pro photographer got dragged into the debate and it all ended up with someone vandalising her working, professional, website, which was pretty disgusting.

Oh, and take that chip off the shoulder. She wasn't Asian either.
