The plural of anecdote is not data.

I see but repeating that a story was in the NYT five years ago is data. Gotcha.

Claiming that a story covered by the NYT and other mainstream press is obscure is silly.

And I'm saying that there were many many other stories covered by the NYT and other media in the same timeframe. Name 5 of them, please, without using google to look them up.

So you're arguing that other stories are less important? I have absolutely no idea what your point is. I'm wondering if you do, as well.

I don't need to remember exactly when that happened to remember that it happened. I don't need to remember exactly when other memorable events happened to remember that the Amazon event happened.

The real point is that it got mainstream press coverage at the time. Lots of people heard about it. If they've forgotten about it since then, then obviously it doesn't matter to most people.

Which makes you the outlier, and of little significance to the market. Mountain, molehill, etc. Get over it, and move on.

The point is most people don't know about it.they may have heard about it and forgotten,just like you can't remember any other article from that time, or they never heard about it. You probably only remember it because it was discussed to death here and is brought up on a regular basis here.

If people knew about it then, and have forgotten it, then it's not a problem. People do not forget about things that matter to them.
