Oh, I'm not critical of you personally, I'm critical of the fact that you don't know what you're talking about. That you've never done any of this in your life...never had to fit a foot, never had to look analytically at what constitutes a fit and never had to take responsibility for your mistakes or decisions. Or your words.
And yet you feel free to give advice to others...advice that may harm their health. Advice that is simply wrong.
Bottom line is that you don't take any responsibility for what you are telling people. Bottom line is that in the absence of hands on experience...other than keyboard experience, IOW...you've never even taken the responsibility to make sure you've got it right.
And while it's true you didn't add any philosophical stuff, you didn't add anything real or practical or constructive either. Just contrary opinions based on wishful thinking and fantasy. I'll take issue with you for that all day, every day.
And you'll deserve it.

Yes, yes, Mr. Pseudo Podiatrist.
Thanks for letting me know my experience is wrong and I am not responsible for my own feet!
What's next, you going to tell me that I don't know what a proper fit is? Or my experiences of getting shoes made is null and invalid?
