Cleaning a sensor is, at best, a dangerous chore. I have yet to meet a photographer who enjoys doing it.

dangerous.... as in crossing the road?

why would you choose such a word to describe cleaning?

curious.

Alan, I'll let Nikon explain my word choice for me.

Both the D7000 and D700 users' manuals discuss sensor cleaning with the same unambiguous language:

"Dirt that can not be removed with a blower can only be removed by Nikon-authorized service personnel.  Under no circumstances should you touch or wipe the sensor."

It's "dangerous" because Nikon explicitly, unambiguously says you shouldn't do it.
