Sensor Dust - slaying the myths

I see many references to dust on sensors and to what people think causes it and how to avoid it. And much puzzlement over how a sensor might remain clean despite various events or dirt despite certain conditions. I think that much of what is commonly believed about dust is myth that has become well established through frequent repetition.

I want to slay some of those myths here. I shall put each one in a separate sub-thread. Please feel free to argue constructively with me. But I will ignore flames and insults!

I have chosen to slay seven myths. Myth 1 is by far the most important, so important that I shall make the point here as well in case you decide not to read Myth 1 in detail.

Sensor dust has absolutely nothing to do with changing lenses.

If you want to see how I support that conclusion, read about Myth 1.
