The way I read the posts (whilst I was deciding what to do with them) was completely different. They seemed to me to be advocating a different strategy - which is not allowed here.

However, having a benchmark to measure a HYP's performance is a very practical tool. A benchmark can be an index (I choose FTSE100 TR). And a measureable/accessible form of an index can be an ETF index tracker. T'was only that. I accept it might then read as "invest in HYP or an index tracker (ETF)?" which was not the intent of those posts.
Could not the HYPP and HYSS sections both be moved behind the need to login area as they're both clearly relative to just a subset group that otherwise report/flame posts that deviate from what they opine should only be discussed?
