My original point about the firmware was on topic, if people then criticise I have a right to defend myself. That really isn't trolling.
The first part of the offensive post was about the firmware, was on topic, and no one criticized you for that. It's the second part, "That said I'm glad rich idiots beta test new cameras by buying them 4 months before me," that garnered the criticism - and rightfully so, as it was a rude, unnecessary remark (as were your subsequent repetitions on the same theme).
FWIW, if my livelihood depended on my photo gear, I wouldn't be an early adopter. Likewise, the 'beta testing' of scientific instruments is done on duplicate instruments outside of the production environment. It seems you're incapable of grasping the concept that maybe some of us are buying a 1D X from a desire for a very responsive FF body robust enough to be treated like the tool it is, and that we're going to actually go out and shoot pictures with it.
I apologised for the particular form of words, and the offence caused, not for the sentiment which I went onto express in toned down terms.
Toned down? Really? Metacognition check. The original:
...and the 'toned down' version:
have a) an excess of idle cash and b) are pretty dumb
I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who sees that 'couched in fancier language' does not equate to 'toned down'.
Had you simply stated that being an early adopter carries risks which you, personally, find unacceptable, that's one thing. Calling early 1D X adopters 'idiots who are buying it for bragging rights' crosses the line, no matter the particular form of words.
