Largely because they are based on highly speculative models of history and ridiculous
preconceptions about how a text 'should' be written. Also, the examples and motives
that they have given have been eerily easy for me to discount, in most cases simply
by looking at the text, without the need to consult commentaries or others who have
already looked into the question.
