The best FF cameras still hold a two stop advanatge over mFT ,

Not from what I've been reading. Two stops would be the theoretical value, and human engineering rarely gets to the theoretical value of anything.

One or perhaps a bit better stops, not two, comparing D800 with the E-M5. In sharpness FF is about 1.4x M43, with best lenses on best bodies compared, and significantly less than the 2x theoretical value.

The D800 has a comfortable two stop DR at base and if you output to the same size you can either have two stops more detail or sacrifice some of the extra detail to NR giving you two stops better noise performance. Obviously the D800 is optimised for  low ISO the D4 is a better option if high ISO is your thing.The 2 stop difference in DOF is a given

FF is better, definitely. However using FF does not necessarily define the photographer in any way other than perhaps they have access to the gear either through personal wealth, enthusiastic spending, or work. It also might indicate considerable arm and back strength and perhaps hard work through a good fitness programme resulting in good physical stamina. Most of these are very nice and desirable mate choosing indicators I must say. Would this be a factor motivating FF antagonists in forums like this?

Nah , it's not  the FF guys strutting their stuff ( some FF primes are pretty small ) it's the guys with the huge fast tele photos that are really strutting their stuff
