I like to browse other forums mostly just because I enjoy seeing other photos, seeing how other cameras perform, and hearing various technical conversations. But I very rarely ever post in other forums, mostly just for fear of somehow being labeled as or mistaken for a troll. Even posting something completely brand-agnostic, just seeing that I use a different camera brand in my profile or seeing that I mostly post in another brand's forum can make someone get defensive or jump on you!

I've personally always felt like the M4:3, NEX, System 1, NX, and now EOS-M photographers should be welcoming to eachother and enjoy talking about the similarities of these systems we have, rather than the differences. Alas, it doesn't seem to trend that way on the forums. It's been much nicer in the real world, where I've had some great conversations and talked about much in common with M4:3 and Nikon 1 shooters I've encountered...not once did anyone pipe in about the superiority of any of our systems - we just discussed what they had in common and how we all get the best from them.

Hear, hear!
