You should also remember that all people are not the same. Or have the same interest. Yes some people like to have the most "expensive" lenses. Other the "fastest, largest, sharpest, smallest best build or whatever" lenses. They even show it in their equipment list or profile.
Others don't care about such things. Instead they like to show that they have their blogs, websites, G+, facebook pages, twitter, flickr and other stuff.........some even advertise that they have all those for their pics.
(keep in mind that the most is not always the best thing for your purposes in this case either)

I have given your advice about the use of social media and web sites all due consideration. :-)
Beyond that, my point pretty much was that "all people are not the same," with the further point being that just because someone tells you that they are really fond of, say, the 50mm f/1.2 L you still need to look carefully at your own circumstances and needs and make a decision that best reflects them - rather than simply assuming that Big Lens Good, Small Lens Bad. ;-)
After reading far too many posts by people buying their first DSLR and wondering whether they should run right out and get a series of L primes, because somebody told them they were the best lenses, this reminder is quite useful I think.
