Further, there is actually quite a bit of evidence that HFCS is NOT the same as other sugars. Industry critics dispute those studies, but they exist.

I understand that this is one of those topics that the Pop Skeptic community has taken under its wing, but not because of evidence one way or the other.

The GP is arguing that there is no body of credible evidence

No, he said he "hasn't seen" any evidence.

The GP is claiming said link doesn't exist because of a lack of evidence

That is not what he said. You're putting words in his mouth. If he'd said that I wouldn't have responded to him.

Here is the entirety of his comment:

I have never seen any study suggesting that, except the single widely ridiculed Yale study. Not surprising given how nearly identical sucrose and HFCS are in the gut.

Say your ERT is engaged in a dynamic entry to deal with a hostage situation. It might be critical to take out a lookout quietly.

Absolutely, positively not. If police departments are doing "dynamic entry" into a hostage situation with the plan to execute lookouts then we have a big problem.

Or say you are trying to get into a drug manufacturing compound that has armed guards with a night raid before they can blow the warehouse (or any similar sort of entry where you need surprise). Silencers can add to your odds of being able to execute.

Police are not supposed to "execute". You've been playing too much Rainbow Six.

The purpose of silencers is to kill undetected. There is no appropriate police activity which requires undetected killing.

Thanks for the screenshot. It explains what you're saying better.

Still, do you think that they changed the search engine, left all those options for smart search on, then went to the OS setting for spotlight and turned that off, then sounded the alarm? Would seem a bit like manufactured outrage to me, but I suppose it's not impossible.

If those options were actually left on, then is a very non-story (at least that part)

Agreed, they have a very good track record but...

They don't make money by selling user information to third parties or by selling ads

Huh? http://advertising.apple.com/

Sure, it's not their main cash cow, but they do sell ads, with targeting and analytics.

They specifically said they turned off Spotlight suggestions.

Even if that were not so, changing search engine should never mean you have to find another configuration option to turn off the old search engine. That's just wrong.

This is actually my only issue. It seems many of the things they found in TFGHR have a legit uses, but if you turn it off, then it should be off.
