For fun, I just went back and read the thread throughout the debate following rattymouse's initial posting of images. I obviously can't say anything about what was said in PM, but at least on the public forum there was certainly never any hounding or arrogance, with some people commented on the images themselves in a positive way (Laura), and others arguing back and forth whether the thread should broaden it's horizon. I, for the record, supported any camera with a native F-mount, but the consensus was to keep the status quo, which was fair given how well the thread was moving at the time, and still is.
I'm sorry you feel that you were hassled away from the thread, rattymouse, but your revisionist version of history does no one here justice.
