Pentaxians object to K-x vs T2i/550D treatment in dpreview review

The dpreview review of the Canon D-Rebel T2i/550D two days ago had an unintended side-effect: it set off a firestorm in the Pentaxian-o-sphere because of the way the K-x was "treated" in the T2i/550D review.

These are long threads, so be sure to fill up the coffee pot or put on a full kettle! We start with the dpreview forums:
+ long discussion
+ review meta-questions

Discussion of this also spread in the PFFs. Unrelated to this review, but of interest to photographers caught between these two cameras is a prior discussion of K-x vs T2i/550D in the PFFs.

The review also generated some feedback from "tough love" Pentaxian RiceHigh, who rushes to defend K-x's honor.
