260 posts, how about a summary?
Well, it seems that when people legitimately criticize DxO Labs' application
of their measurements, apologists rush in to defend their measurements
That's called an air ball
And when people point out that these DxO scores (applications) are being misused by review sites etc in a way that gives the wrong impression, apologists rush in to say that's not really DxO Labs' fault.
You must be joking.
Let us say Mercedes Inc engaged you to independently measure the quality of their product vis a vis say, Ford Inc, which they had also measured and knew would favour them. They also told you to summarize your findings and publish them. You go ahead and do it but goodness gracious, what's this? Your website is technically correct and shows Mercedes' quality advantage at the deepest level, but your way of summarizing and organizing and communicating gives the general impression that Ford is the better overall vehicle!
Suddenly, due to your excellent technical
reputation, the world takes notice of your findings. Reviewers start to refer to 'The Ford Advantage' on their websites. Fleet buyers start recommending to boardrooms that current Mercedes contracts for trucks and buses should not be renewed, partly due to a new quality value matrix
by an industry technical expert that favours other marques. The boardroom executive gossip soon reaches the ears of Mercedes executives.
Suddenly your client is on the phone to you in an absolute Teutonic fury. Yes, they say, your base measurements are correct but what on earth have you done with it? Why the blazes that way? Don't you realize how everyone is interpreting it?
Here is your answer: (hold on, wait for it, it's a beauty): "It's not my fault if they are not well enough informed to grasp the underlying deep measurements correctly."
Good luck getting your invoice processed.
