Depth of field advantages from full frame are practically meaningless.

For 80% or more of photographers (meaning, anyone with a camera), this is a basically accurate statement.

80% of people with a camera don't know what depth of field is. 80% of cameras don't have much depth of field to speak of in the first place. People in this forum are much more likely to actually care about the details of photography. People who don't care buy their 70D without reading much in the way of reviews and probably zero forum posts, put it in Green Square mode, and carry on with their lives. People who come to this forum know better. Should those poor saps do a search for reviews and find his first or come here to get more opinions without anyone talking about what depth of field is good for then I guess they just don't get to make up their mind for themselves, huh? It is not entirely intuitive for people to just figure out on their own the differences in DoF between FF and tiny point and shoot sensors, and in photography every little difference counts.

Here's what Ken should say: "If you just want to take pictures and don't give a flying f$%^ about trying to make them look great instead of good, then listen to me. If you don't think that the details make a difference in many shooting situations, output options, and the overall look of your images then here's my advice."

Also Ken doesn't attempt to preach to anybody how to be a sports, war, glamour, underwater, parachute, paparazzi, photographer.

He has tested more cameras then most people will have in their lifetime.

I personally find him quite helpful in the limitation that he writes about.

People have embarked on a crusade of misery against him virtually for no reason at all.

I actually like what he writes as he gives it a human face.
