Pepe, I'm not sniping. I don't care about any kind of one-upping here. I certainly accept missing the Stephanie boot.
The theory is being put forward still as a prediction of Ashley and David going, so I am taking it seriously. (Personally I am on board with David, but not with Ashley, but I certainly don't know whether that is correct or not.)
I needed to pull out the Stephanie quotes as a way to show that michel's original theory did not include Stephanie, because there was a certain amount of support in the topic for counting her half head after the fact. It is important IMHO that we take a look at how the theory has performed to date and note that it missed Stephanie.
The point is not to say that michel missed something. The point is that the editors didn't include all the pre-merge boots, and that needs to be factored in to any future use of the theory.
All of this is in service of trying to figure out the next boot.
