It's very important to treat one another with respect irregardless of
another person's viewpoint.  Even if someone wants to tear apart their
Eclair ACL with no experience, it is their perogative and you should

final product.  This is a grey area.  Even if that different way of
doing things is unusual or strange--it works for that person--and they
like it (case in point, I like the TTL light meter--it's worked for me,
and I think that should be respected.)  It's not a matter of right or
wrong in that case, but a matter of different strokes for different
