Rather than a straightforward minimum IQ score, I propose the following criterion for forum participation:

(IQ score / your camera's DR score) > 9

The smaller denominator gives more of a chance for us dumb Canon shooters to participate in this forum.   ::)

Damn...really...9 ?!?  Well, at least I have something to shoot for (PI).  Off to ebay for a DCS-100....

This is a sound plan, because then all but the most intellectually gifted nikon missionaries would be barred from spreading the holy words of DR on CR

Wow!  I'm impressed - an oxymoron and a rhyme in the same sentence. Bravo!

What happens to the people who don't meet the minimum IQ? Do they have to go post on Nikon sites?

Maybe there is room for a "Humour" section threads like that could be moved to.   

...and a section for threads where people put a 'u' in words like humor and color.  Oh, wait...we already have one:P
we only put the 'u' there because it is correct English spelling,not everyone on CR is from Nth America and we appreciate our own conventions as you do yours.

Canada also puts a "U" in words like 'colour'.
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

"intellectually gifted nikon missionaries" may be an oxymoron. But "the most intellectually gifted nikon missionaries" need not be an oxymoron because it might refer to the least moronic of a bunch of morons.  Isn't language strange.

Why 'stop' @2.8.   That's not fair '2' those more 'open-minded' or those who have had 1.2 many cocktails.  ;)
Careful with those, corner sharpness will deteriorate, and you can expect increased vignetting
Only if you have a full frame! Some of us have a more slender boy type  ;)

Wait a minute; I'm not an ox or a moron; I'm from Bahl mer [that's in Murlund], so now what do I do?

At the risk of having this thread suffer the same fate,  I suggest 2.8 is the number you seek.

Seriously though,   I thought that other thread was amusing.   Maybe there is room for a "Humour" section threads like that could be moved to.   I for one feel some other current threads are more worthy of being locked than that one was...
I think a 1.4 but one could still post with a 1.2.

And +100 on that thread. I thought the piece was thought thru before writing. Remember the bit about the mirror crunch? How many $$,$$$ would one spend if you bought all that equipment? I agree, we need a humor section :)
