Wow, KR has certainly gained a following. Beware of what he says because a lot of it is absolute BS, and he changes his mind continually. This is what KR says about his own website.
This website is [snip] a work of fiction, entirely the product of my own imagination…this site is my “aggressive personal opinion,” and not a logical presentation of fact…I occasionally weave fiction and satire into my stories to keep them interesting…if you consider anything I say as an endorsement (God help you if you do, remember, I do this site as a goof)…
Take anything he says with a huge grain of salt...perhaps an entire salt block...
If you really read his information most of it is fiction.
But, based on the WSJ's recent article on Leica, they didn't do their research enough to figure out what he is actually doing. Instead they quoted him as an "expert." I would guess that KR is laughing his a!! off all the way to the bank.
I have not personally believed a word of what he says and I very rarely read anything on his site.
