Apparently, his argument for completely disregarding that red, is the fact that the meaning of the word 'people' is ambiguous. Does it reffer to bodies? Does it reffer to personalities? He completely misses the fact that the meaning behind the terms used in red are subjective, just as happens with the white text, which enables the use of many semantics and word-play, which Umineko is full of ever since the red first shows up.

Another thing I came across while skimming his theory is, he uses the following reds to actually disprove Shkannon:
The only one who can claim Kanon's name is the person himself! A different person cannot claim his name.

Not that Yasu IS Kanon so she can claim his name, no, of course not, it means Shkannon isn't real.

They definitely would not mistake any different person for Kanon!

Not that Yasu IS Kanon, again, no, of course not.

Kanon is dead. Among the five people in Kyrie's group, he was the first to die. In short, he was the 9th victim.

Not that the meaning of red text is ambiguous and subjective and Beato is a dirty bitch who can mess around with the meaning of words as she pleases, no, of course not, that's what only us simpletons would think.

It's tough to be blue...
