just simple forum etiquette

disparage Nikon equipment? Aren't you happy with your camera? This is
so silly, childish, it says nothing about your equipment or about
Nikon or Canon, but a lot about your attitude, and it's not
flattering.

Are you drunk? Geez. It does help to actually READ the post I replied
to.
I guess you only are able to read haleluja posts about Nikon stuff
and really can't see when someone is just writing a load of nonsense
(like the person I replied to).

Now explain how i "disparaged" Nikon equipment.
Or maybe you just really "value" such nonsense dribble as written
down by the person I reacted to?

This is a Nikon forum, someone comes and asks about a CxN comparo. Quite expected to have some Nikon fans to say some silly things. Happens all the time in Canon's fora, or Oly's, or else. The point is for someone a user of another brand to come here and write some silly comparison points as you imply by your response, which are not quite true (lens lineup?, really, for APS-C? Canon's better than Nikon's?), or at least quite debatable, in response to an irrelevant N's fan reply.

Now and then, quite infrequently, I visit Canon's fora, usually to ask questions or to comment on some new camera, never to enter CxN debates, which is bound to get ridiculous very fast.

Not drunk, as you can see, just my two cents regarding cross-brand forum etiquette.
