I think that is a very well put statement. In reality, why should we care how others take their photos. As long as they are enjoying it all, thats all that matters.
I agree for the most part. Especially when you consider the adage: "what's the best camera for the job? The one you have with you at the time". The only way I disagree is in that the respect ought to be both ways - others should not care how we take pictures either, so long as we're enjoying it.
