Yet as usual we have all this tribal you must use only one or the other stuff or one is complete rubbish and the other perfect (or their use of the camera is so perfect they do not need it) when most sensible people sit in the middle and use what suits best at the time.

None of the tribal nonsense you speak of comes from our Panasonic forum I don't think.  What seems to happen instead is that people encounter truly hardcore RAW proponents and purists elsewhere (check out the version of this poll posted in the m43 forum where everyone is complaining that Tom didn't include an "I shoot RAW exclusively" option as if the "RAW (or RAW+JPEG)" option was somehow unpalatable) and then project that attitude onto anyone and everyone who dares to extol its virtues.  The funny things is though that as a RAW+JPEG (and occasional JPEG only) shooter myself, I don't feel judged by the real RAW purists amongst us.  I'm perfectly at peace with the fact that some people like to push the envelope even further and more often than I do, just as I am perfectly at peace with the fact that there are many full-frame enthusiasts out there who consider my compacts, and even my m43 gear, wholly inadequate for their own particular purposes.  Ultimately, every single one of us resides at some point along a spectrum of expectation where other people are both above and below us (in that respect), so I think it's hard to avoid becoming somewhat hypocritical if you take issue with it.
