I'll state at the outset that I appreciate that you put a lot of time and effort into providing quality guidance to Betfair traders.
What I wrote wasn't meant to offend. It was meant as a constructive and honest assessment (something you yourself are very good at providing):
- I don't want newbies to waste hours trying to scrape hidden meaning into a pro's posts.
- I also don't want them losing money from trying to emulate a pro because they think they know what the pro does even when they don't.
I maintain that no pro will reveal in public their exact methods (with the possible exception of your good self), as to do so risks ruining their own edge. So what you're left with is partial ingredients to baking a cake. That can be useful if the newbie uses it as a basis for further research and theorizing about the dynamics of the market. However, I think you and I both know that most people don't want to put in any effort - they want a messiah who will give them the formula to making £500 a day with little or no effort, and that ain't gonna happen. That's all I was saying.

Also, what makes you think that you'll necessarily be able to profit from the pro's methods? Unless they show you exactly what they do (they won't), you may well end up missing the vital ingredient(s).
