You are quoting someone's method, but not evidence that there is actually something happening that needs to be corrected. I'm asking what is the evidence that matches involving SNP-poor but also recombination-poor regions are inherently too risky to treat as real.

Good point. I find a lot of bad assumptions in genetic genealogy which are backed only by previous bad assumptions.

I never said that it is inherently too risky to treat as real. I just said it COULD be and I think I've provided ample evidence as to why. Three different sources, one from FTDNA itself, confirming what I said but you just keep ignoring them like I didn't post them, and now you're ignoring my request for you to post evidence to the contrary. Not my problem if you can't accept what is staring you in the face.
