I hate to defend the guy, but I try to give credit where credit is due regardless of how I feel personally. I like to deal objectively.
Prior to the season coming out and scs, Rs was able to with very good percentages, go episode by episode and delineate the dates and the elimination at rose ceremonies.
I personally, don't feel anyone has the power to ruin the sleuthing for me, but me. Maybe I am in the minority, but I don't think so. I think there are quite a few posters who continued to do their own sleuthing regardless of what anyone (RS included) had to say. This goes on every season and hopefully will continue!
Many come to this board for spoilers and sleuthing. They can happily coincide and have for many seasons. Hopefully that will continue, too. But along with spoilers always come the risk of being misinformed. It's not pleasant to be wrong. Been there and done that. All of us would much rather be right than wrong anytime, anyday. If being misinformed is inexcusable...hmmm makes one pause about sharing spoilers in the future.
Not a burden I personally would want to carry around.
A dr. asked me: Does anyone in your family suffer from mental illness? My answer: No they all enjoy it immensely.
As far as editing goes, it was the normal structure. Brad fell in love, that is a side issue. The game with RS I believe was the main focus this season to make the season work.
I give him the highest praise for that detailed episode date material, and for the correct F2.
However, I would dearly love to know what happened on that Thanksgiving Dinner with Chantal's folks and Brad in California....the one that he was positive the info just fell into his lap.
I feel sure we won't find out who misinformed him - or maybe even double-crossed him on that one, but I would like to know.
I am not shaking my head in glee here, either.
The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything they have.

Those who are saying to give RS credit for getting most of the season right...but isn't that the easy part...I mean when girls get cut you know cuz they come home before the other girls so Fleiss prob doesn't put as much effort in hiding everything up until the final 2. I mean I guess it makes it easier that he gathers the info cuz it would be more work for other sleuthers.
