Very nicely said, Sebastian.
Unfortunately, I find that there are too many who end up caught in the BUY-BUY-BUY frenzy and end up like what someone mentioned in another thread... rich sheep (Baa-UY... Baa-UY... Baa-UY). Photography is about taking pictures... and not collecting equipment.
Perhaps they are afflicted by this (I paraphrase Yoda):
fear (of other's better equipment) ... leads to anger (that I can't buy such equipment) .... anger leads to hate (why does people have so much cash?!) ... and hate... leads to suffering (I want more $$, and equipment!)
Just my two cents worth.

To put a different perspective to some points in this thread so far -
Constructive criticism, I'm sure, will be welcome by most folks. And for those who post responses, isn't it more positive to point out what works or not (in your eyes) with the picture? I think this is a positive and win-win approach to critique, as opposed to plain outright criticizing and blasting of posters. That's puerile.
Equipment chasers (a.k.a. EW/EW to some), I feel, will always be part and parcel of Clubsnap. Notwithstanding its roots from HWZ, many people just believe that bigger gun equals better photos. If you feel against this, step up an education campaign. Otherwise, keep a distance from them. Win them, join them, or dump them.
Bemoaning/Complaining about standards
Oh please. If you feel strongly about the standards, do something. Start a course, open house, sharing sessions, a school even. You find standards low, not up to your mark, do a sharing session. Sitting there and crying only shows you up as a selfish, spoilt child. But end of the day, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, however idiotic or misguided they may be.
