I'm over it. If it actually provides a real result for players, or helps other techs, then great, but so much of it is grandstanding. What really gets me though, is that what is purported to be scientific fact, is often just opinion claked in pseudoscientificengineering jargon. Steve Howard at least tests in an openminded manner and seems genuinely concerned with revealing the truth rather than substantiating his own suppositions. He then presents the results in a clear manner. Kudos to him. Too many of the other techs seem to be all about intellectual snobbery and ego. Even when they have very limited or no experience with a particular topic, they seem to just wade in and divert the thread into a defence of their own rigidly held assumptions rather than cooperating to find better solutions for all. Better no solution than giving up the crown of chief know it all.
