Shazam first mentioned some of these points in another thread the other day. When I read it I immediately had a smile on my face. I thought, wow, here's someone confirming something I have been following closely. I'm referring specifically to points 1 & 2. And when I look at what points 1 & 2 I next have to ask myself -- what's the motive for that? Without doubt it is leading to point 3.
I'm going to expand on points 1, 2, and 3 and add my observations to this thread, probably on Monday because it's now late Saturday and I'm going to be away tomorrow.
Also, I know you are a very well respected person here, I'm one who also extends that respect. So, you can well imagine how I felt coming out strongly against you. I hate sticking my hand in fire, ouch! But yet as I said, if new members get intimidated like that they may just quietly go away, and take valuable insight with them.
By the mere fact that he spotted 3 very specific trends that I have been observing means that I would say he's astute enough to be given the benefit of the doubt on the others. When I have time to check those theories out for myself if I disagree with them I'll be standing on the soapbox saying, IMO, they may not be right.
