These two m4/3 cameras seem like the two heavyweight rivals from Olymponic, yet the forum get 10 times the talk and traffic regarding the em-1. Why?

Simple as always: the E-M1 is in most aspects (view finder, ergonomics, robustness, performance) the better camera and thus more popular.

Other than that: why bother?

If this was the case then yes, fortunately the truth is something else

Have you actually compared both view finders? Is the GX7 really as robust as the E-M1 (weather sealing, body finish), does the GX7 have 40 image buffer for raw RAW images, does the GX7 have as much external controls (usable while using the finder)?

Definitely not!

Is the GX7 more popular? Most likely not, which is surprising, because the E-M1 is more expensive.
