This "edifice" thread is a 450 page steaming pile of shit with a pony inside. As with the Rossi thread, all of you who think it shows the best of the best have been living in the magical world of letsrun too long. Which stinks, because...
...Those of you being hailed as sleuths... good work. Incredible stuff has been pulled into the blog and the google doc and a couple executive summaries. It's still a lot to take in, but the independent investigators are numbers guys.
But do go back a few pages and listen to Hiro regarding the evidence you have. A lot of work has been done with screenshots and uploads that may (or may not) be directly attributed to RY and data dumps into places with lovely names such as "fake RY account".
People who are guilty as hell get off sometimes because of evidence tampering... or simply the perception that the evidence COULD HAVE BEEN tweaked.
1. Take a step back and be able to show how/why you think the numbers you've been crunching started with something claimed by RY to be "real". And how your adjustments and presentations spread the light of truth and not a particular bias.
2. If you are asked by the "independent investigators" or an actual journalist to clarify how you did what you did and where it came from, answer it calmly and to the best of your ability.
Unlike folks that are going to respond to this post calling me names and returning to the letsrun commune (which comes off looking identical in most respects to the RY fanclub, just with a different/opposite frame of reference), act like real people.
And don't stuff their inboxes and twitter feeds with confusing stuff. Designate a few... racergirl, team1, investigator, a few more... to work it (if they so choose).
