I nice short response,
it shows missed the MAJOR difference. You need to see:

Your stock answer of claiming that everyone and his granny is missing the
point is wearing a bit thin, and despite your suggestion I have not missed
anything either and that includes John's results.
Those results, as far as they go, look very good, and I have no doubt you
deserve credit for what you've achieved, but what YOU seem to have missed,
or conveniently continue to ignore, is the need to be able to prove, or
provide sufficient information so that someone else can prove, that your
results are applicable to a more general case, and at least to the accuracy that
There will always be empirical design methods, so called "rules of thumb"
for example, and these can be very valuable tools but the results from such
methods, indeed the results from any design method, still need to be
evaluated and confirmed in practice.
In a similar fashion your measurement technique, again as with all others,
needs validation and proper analysis of its limitations before you can
truly come to rely upon it as a stand alone tool.
It may well be "good enough" for everything you need but despite John's
measurements, and however good his results, what you haven't demonstrated so
far is the ability to evaluate those limitations so you can be sure of that.
The only way at the moment that you can be really sure of your
measurements each and every time is to have someone like John check your results each
and every time.
It doesn't matter how many times your results are checked and confirmed,
and it doesn't matter that your technique might be perfect and your results
might be perfect every time, what you've demonstrated very clearly so far is
that you just don't know whether or not that's true.
I've wondered sometimes if you're just frightened that somebody might
prove you wrong but I don't recall anyone suggesting you're actually "wrong",
all I've seen is folks trying to help you and offer well meant and useful
advice that could assist you properly evaluate the limitations of what you're
However, there must be a definite blockage somewhere because you seem to
have gone into auto repeat mode, and for someone who claims not to have time
to produce any documentation you must have wasted hours and hours churning
out the same old smokescreens.
Refusing to share your "recipe" so to speak, with all the bullshit you've
come up with as to why that shouldn't be necessary, and to insult and
attempt to belittle those who have tried to advise you, with all that crap about
the "experts who just don't understand how it works" etc etc, well, sorry
mate but that really is the mark of a true snake oil salesman and, if
nothing else, you've certainly got that off to perfection.
