I see all kinds of suggestions, many times the suggestions seem spot on for what the person posting is looking to shoot. I have seen 7D, 70D, 60D, 5D2, 5D3, 1D3, 6D, and even the original 5D as suggestions recently. I think alot of people suggest a camera they want, or already have, and the 5D3 seems to be a very good value for the money in the current model line up.
I agree with some of your statements, but I see quite often, a person asking about a camera that would work well for, let's say, landscape and occasionally kids, he says he has a limited budget, $2000 for example, and is considering a 6D, the comments start to come in that the AF is not very good, the frame rate is slow, outer focus points are crap, and yata, yata, yata. The poster doesn't need to be told to save more and buy way more camera then he needs. All that would do is lead to frustration and possibly turn the person away from photography. Not very helpful. I think want frustrates me the most is that the subject of the original post gets lost. It becomes a my camera is better than your camera post.
