In my opinion any dslr owner should learn how to clean there camera and sensor. I have had pro's tell me they do a cleaning before every shoot. On the other hand I know another pro who is afraid to do it and sends to a local dealer to have it cleaned periodically. So you will see varying opinions. I have heard of some older sensor cleaning methods creating a major problem. There is one that sprays on and then gets peeled off. I would stay clear of these.
I have been a member for a few years and have learned to trust the opinions of some of the members more than others. I have never found Stan to be one to mislead members. Accusing him of that is irresponsible. Feel free to disagree but just because you do does not mean he is guilty of the charge. For any willing to clean there own sensor just do research and ensure you are using a safe method. Nikonians is a perfect place to get this kind of info. I use the copper hill method and have no problems. I have wet cleaned my sensors for a few years and my friends 3500$ canon with out incident. All members need to decide for themselves what is right. Be cautious about letting fear stop you from making the right decision. Gain knowledge and this will lesson your fear
BTW I wonder where Stan found out the hardness of the sensor. I don't doubt him just wonder.
