Let me add "A camera is nothing but a tool" to the mix. I'm guilty of
taking good care of mine, so none of them are dented, brassed, etc.
Makes me a camera fondler. ;-)

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.
