Did you even read the post you quoted? It gives a full and detailed answer to the question you ask, and even tells you where to go if you want to investigate further.
The AP food gives more AP, which compensates for the fact that it doesn't give crit. And because there's more of it, it scales better with the 10% AP buffs and also transfers more AP to your pet. When you take all of these things into account, they are relatively close, which is what he was talking about. For some specs and gear levels AP may even be slightly ahead. But in any event, it's not that far behind usually for MM or BM hunters. The hunter spreadsheet can confirm this.
even for the new piercing shots for MM? I would think the extra crit chance from the agility + the atk pwr from the agility itself would make it a better choice in 40 agi vs 80 atk pwr, no?
