1. It can be a useful tool if you can benefit from it. Outside of DPR, it plays a useful but very minor role for most photographers.

2. You can make a hobby out of it by discussing or bickering about it, reading, thinking, studying, and writing about it.

3. You can kill some time by reading very entertaining internet threads about it.

4. You can join a cult to either extol or denounce it's virtues, on DPR anyway.

5. You could write a PhD thesis about the personalities of us who post on internet threads about it.

Well it was very predictable that you would use this thread to promote and generate clicks for your treatise...

Given that there are no ads, whatsoever, on my site, what interest would I have in generating clicks for it?

I don't know, let me think. Oh yeah, your ego.

...which by the way is very useful, but has probably gotten much too long, but I think you broke your previous record time for doing so,

There are the Quick Summaries, for those that don't want to read the whole thing.

Thank you for that.

This is in no way a criticism of so called equivalence. As I said. "It can be a useful tool if you can benefit from it."

Truth be told, you seem pretty bitter about it. Is that my imagination?

It is your imagination. What is called equivalence around here is what it is. It is a tool, nothing to get emotional about. Well there is that cult thing, though.
