I appreciate the pragmatism, but this is not the case. I do not wish to bring more drama here, but fireice was banned by unanimous decision from the @monero Telegram group for their hostile comments and constantly referencing their altcoin. They were removed as a moderator from r/MoneroMining since they consistently broke the subreddit’s rules. These actions have absolutely no connection to research evaluating Monero’s weaknesses. I encourage it heavily, as you pointed out with my Breaking Monero series and the several published MRL papers that speak about Monero past and current weaknesses.
This specific post is nearly controversy-free, as I pointed out here. It is certainly their best article so far by some margin, and it is currently visible in r/Monero. However, the author nevertheless insists on using this research piece to the different end of claiming most people in the Monero community are against research suggesting there are limitations. This is not the case.
In regards to this specific blog post, it indeed provides a good high-level view over some of the considerations of churning. Churning may have severe consequences if done incorrectly. We absolutely need more eyes looking into possible information leaks when churning, just as Zcash solicited my opinion and the opinion of others in designing a turnstile migration guide.
