It's much better than elsewhere that when such subjects are brought up, the response is usually "S is the builders scale, you always can build it," or "XYZ Company made that 20 years ago, we don't need another one." Both are unhelpful dead-ender responses IMHO.
As a reader of and sometimes contributor to the forum to which you are referring, I got a chuckle from this Rusty. If that forum had been my only exposure to S enthusiasts 5 years ago, I would have refrained from social participation in the hobby so as to avoid being talked down to.
