I'll take condescension any day over vacuous repetition. I don't know how 
many times I've read on the Lug words to the effect of:

"proof positive of the theory that a camera is just a box, and a good 
photographer can produce outstanding images using any kind of equipment. 
;-)"...yada yada yada.

I'll bet hundreds, maybe thousands! Why not give the mantra/chantra a 
number. It would save a lot of typing time. It's a little like saying that a 
professional race car driver can be competitive in any class, using any car 
in that class. Of course most can. I doubt that we'd see constant posts on a 
Chevrolet, Ford, or Dodge on-line forum to that effect. These people are 
there because they are interested in that particular vehicle.
