My point being that despite me being a not too proficient photographer, I still manage to take some keepers some of the time, where-else a great photographer with the right equipment will take keepers for most of the time.

Taking a lot of photos, and knowing that only a few of them are any good and that most of them suck, is 90% of being a good photographer.

There is truth in that.  But not everyone strives to be THAT photographer, which should be part of the context of one's assessment of others work if one must do that.  Be a man, pick on your peers if you must pick.  But who knows what peer group you'd be part of, since you feel you don't have to prove you can walk the walk (a typical response of a coward).
