You are entitled to your own opinion, but your posts are creating an environment where other members won't want to help for fear of your reprisal and that hurts the community.
Mirrorless cameras are in a different league than point-and-shoots, and aren't directly comparable. Just because something costs the same does not always mean it is a viable alternative, especially given the OP's requirements.
My opinions come from experience with a wide range of cameras, printing and selling photographs, not buying 8000 dollars worth of digital camera equipment to post 900x600 pixel shots on flickr. You are, of course, entitled to your opinion, but when your suggestions do not correlate with real life, someone has to be the one to call you on it, like your proclamation in another thread that outputting JPGs to print was a viable option. Sure, you can do a lot of things if you don't care about your work or treat photography like another technology-gear-hording hobby.
