Feel free to do so, but don't expect me to take it seriously.

I think that being taken seriously by someone who chooses to shape their views as you do is probably not a good thing.

I'm quite happy that sensible people take me seriously. Being seen as a nuisance by fanboys is not a bad thing.

Let's talk about knowledge and being sensible.

I come here for a bit of fun, it's my hobby after all. I simply like talking about photography gear and never claim to be an expert on these matters, nor do I take myself seriously.

I know you have a lot of engineering knowledge and that part I take seriously. That is logical since I think it's important to respect people's expertise, and in matters of matter of my own expertise I expect to be taken seriously as well.

The problem I have with your posts is that you appear to be going around posting remarks you very well know will cause responses (like claiming the D300 is better at all levels than the 7D on a Canon forum), that you know people can easily misinterpret (like the semantic game about "shell" and "chassis" etc.), that you know lead to your area of expertise. All that once you spot any type of mistake you can pounce on it and "wow" everyone with your expert knowledge.

Even if, no 'especially' if your knowledge is at a far higher level than anyone else's, it is your responsibility not to play games, but to respectfully inform. Didactically your posts are extremely poor and seem to serve no other purpose than to make you feel good about yourself. That‚Äč is what I don't take seriously. A supposed expert going around an internet forum trying to impress lay people is not something I can take very seriously. And I recognize it because I'm embrarrassed to say I did the same thing during my first few years at uni, except I grew out of it.
