The subject line in your original post would more correctly have been written, "It's Nikon, boys. Don't be afraid".

nfpotter was pointing out that by using the term 'boys', this could be interpreted as excluding 'girls'. Female contributors to these forums are few. We (I) don't want to make them feel excluded from conversation. So the subject line in your original post could have been, "It's Nikon. Don't be afraid". By not mentioning gender, all genders are included.

"Don't afraid" is not grammatically correct. In this context, "Don't be afraid" is correct.

Cheers,
