Well I'll know tomorrow thats for sure, but I do think saying the evf adds bulk is idiotic.

I agree about that being questionable, but. . . idiotic?

I can appreciate the VF being considered 'bulky' for this particular styling, in that the eyecup and movable VF could confound what otherwise looks to be a relatively pocketable model, catching on cloth or seams (and maybe a bag).   But that's a consideration of how one carries/utilizes their camera.  I have more problems accessing my gear from the Thinktank bags than I do the deeper depth Billinghams, for example.  The trade off is convenience and bulk of each bag.

On the other hand, it's the reviewer's opinion.   Which is just as valid as yours and mine, so it should be accepted as such.  We don't have to agree, but I think we should give the other perspective equal respect.  It's not like the opinion was disrespect for your opinion and sensibilities,  though your passionate reaction makes it sound like that's exactly what's irking you.
