The first thread you linked to was about which brand of camera was better to ward off wild animals, but the post you linked to was basically OT for the thread.

...I never read the thread. I was just emailed a link to a DR comparison between the 5D2 and D7000, and have that post bookmarked.

In this particular case the "out of context" post was valid to use as an example to back your claim.

That thread was obviously a light-hearted attempt to point out that there are other considerations in photography, and the "DR" post was presumably a result of the poster failing to notice the intent.
