What can we (as a group or as individuals) do about it?

The more you respond with posts like this the more negativity you encourage.

The sooner these people realise that their antagonism is falling upon deaf ears the sooner it will stop.

That's also a valid answer. Your suggestion to just ignore it can be done if we take it as a group effort.

You seem to be taking it far too seriously. Ask yourself how this impacts on your life? It shouldn't do so. Not at all.

On my life; none. But think about. What we, as a group of MFT users, want is MFT to be successful. We want new lenses and body's from time to time. With all this negativity from 35mm users the change of new blood becomes smaller. This process of negativity is proven in the marketing world.

Another thing is that all this negativity is bad for the entire photography world. As a young person who is looking to upgrade his smartphone camera to a real camera and sees all these negativity and nagging under a review of a body, he/she will think twice about it to start with the hobby.

This place should be the number 1 spot to get information as a new camera owner of someone who is interested in the hobby. Instead it's so toxic that I would never mentioned it to any one interested in photography.
