Yeah, it's a stupid idea. We should get Nikon to remove the AF-On button from all their cameras!
Take a chill pill ... there is nothing in therealhershey post that you quoted that said AF-On is stupid, therealhershey simply said that he prefers to use the AF-S/AF-C selector switch.
That Nikon makes their cameras with both options to suit people's needs and/or preferences is a good thing.
Clearly the AF-ON button works great for you and the majority of people who have voted in the poll, but there is a good number of people that have different preferences ... nothing wrong with that.
