Your credibility in this argument just took a big dive. fuhchee said "almost all of the interesting data" and you left out the "almost", which changes the meaning considerably. Besides which, you yourself say "much investigation does indeed start with probes from SDT- and USDT-provided probes -- but it often finishes with probes from fbt and pid" which certainly implies that a majority of investigations begin with SDT and USDT, which also implies that SDT and USDT are "more" used than anything else. Maybe "almost all" is an exageration of "most", but leaving out the "almost" is a misquote twisting his words to match your thoughts.
