I’m sorry, but isn’t the point of a model to predict the future? How do you know it won’t happen until it actually gets to that timeframe? What if it actually verified? You can’t automatically say it’s going to be wrong just because it’s the GFS. If the GFS was always wrong, why would NOAA continue it? Half of this forum is based upon long-range signals. So why not ban them too? How often do the teleconnections change and all of a sudden we’re all bummed they didn’t happen? You can’t just ban something just because you don’t think it’s realistic. That’s not how the world works.
I’m sure many on this forum, especially those that are new, would be disappointed if such a thing were to be done. If newbies see that posting the GFS is banned in serious discussions, what will they think? They’ll just go to another forum. The point of a forum is to discuss things, but if you can’t discuss things, what’s the point?
You have to be able to look at a run, look at the trends of drivers of a pattern, and see if it’s worthwhile analyzing. No, it’s most likely not going to drop 6.3” in the back left corner of your front yard, but it’s meant to let you know about a signal. If you just flat out say it’s lying, you’re going to be caught off guard next time it is right.
Meanwhile, this should probably be in banter, and feel free to move it, but I needed everyone to see this.
