    edit: And more: "These are very long range forecasts". Why do you think he added that qualification, genius?
    Thank you.

    Also thank you.

    Regarding the accuracy of my post, I posted a picture that shows a model forecasting the typhoon making landfall something like 10 miles from downtown hong kong. He just ignored it.

    A professional weather forecaster is arguing about weather forecasting models, and trying to score technical points on a model displayed earlier in the discussion from a PM that works for Tacky and Abrasive. If this isn't the internet in a nutshell, I don't know what is.

    I'm not sure if you're trying to say:
    1. A professional is always right and can't be wrong about something (you're smarter than this, so I doubt it)
    2. This professional is trying to own someone on the minutia of a topic the OP isn't a professional on (If so, ok...)
    3. *Yakkety sax* (most likely)

    Mostly 3, a little 2. But mostly 3.

    No, I pointed out that it didn't show anything remotely close to what you thought it did, but you ignored that.
