The only time I call out numbers is where official shipment numbers make the numbers look wrong, or some other OFFICIAL announcement does the same.
The current PS3 situation is an example of this.
I think he is more frustrated with people constantly calling overtracked/undertracked every week when the data is usually within a reasonable range of accuracy. PS3 is wrong and should be adjusted but that is more than a few thousand difference. where as this week we had people arguing over a small difference because they somehow no more through assumptions. Some people going so far as saying it was off by 500k to 1 million. It was one thing if people were saying it was off by 50k to 100k but people were saying much more than that as I'm sure you're aware of since i seen you in that thread as well.
