    Not at all.
    You are just going way over the top with it, like it's something personal to you.

    If you go back to how this first started, I literally just threw out cloning because it's one of the go-to plots in Star Wars and a prevailing theory for TROS, to highlight how even that would need explained as much as anything given how it'd be used. As a hypothetical. You have, at every step, tried turning it into something else as if I proposed it as the truth. Which I never did. Then you took a valid critique (one that I don't even actually personally agree with) against JJ and turned it into me taking shots at him...which again, I never did. Many people were upset after TFA that it was too close to ANH. If TROS comes out too close to ROTJ people will have more ground than ever before to claim the things they have since TFA. I do not want that. If he just reuses too many other Star Wars tropes in predictable ways, it will bring those things back up. JJ is great at starting off franchises but has never really finished one. He's well known for his mystery box approach to everything. Which is a good way to start something but a poor way to finish. So we are essentially seeing from JJ something he's never done before. That's not a dig at him.

    Anyways, since this whole thing is debunked, it's all moot anyways.

    Several people had access to TFA call sheets, concept art and production stills.
    They were shared around Indie Revolver, MillenniumFalcon.com, Jason Ward and this site. Maybe others. Not sure who was involved, not sure how, and not sure why. Etc. Not really any of my business.
    Before the sequels happened, Ward merely ran a Tumblr blog which posted "rare" Star Wars pictures, many of which were just stolen from other Star Wars websites including starwarsarchives.com. I know because I was involved in that site for a while until the forum closed (I believe the main site is still running though) and he shared pics which were watermarked and could have only possibly come from that site, passing them off as his own pics. So that's the sort of person he is.
    I called him out on it once, and he claimed he had never visited the site, despite posting a load of watermarked pics, so I left it at that.

    I'd say people are probably close to the mark when they say his connection must be Bad Robot-related because he had sweet FA on The Last Jedi, Rogue One, and Solo - at least, anything he did have was leaked elsewhere first.
    However, I'd say we've seen enough footage now to agree JediPaxis at least has got some things right, and some of the details Ward posted before Paxis ever posted similar stuff has to be acknowledged as being accurate to a greater or lesser degree on that basis alone.
    So, yeah, he's got something. Obviously.

    The bottom line is, Ward has been dining out on the TFA meal ticket for a fair few years now - and, at the end of the day, Indie Revolver and MF.com had the balls to post the stuff he was too scared to share anyway back in the day.
    He's posting everything he gets his hands on now because he is monetizing his site. He doesn't care. 1,000 clicks on a bogus story is as good as 1,000 clicks on an accurate one as far as he is concerned I'd guess. Or his standards have just slipped. Who knows?
    Come the new year, traffic is going to drop for pretty much every SW site, however well The Mandalorian, for example, is doing.
    This is last-chance saloon for him now, so far as making a few bucks off this is concerned.

    Fair play to him though, I suppose. Trevorrow calling him out is no different to us calling him out when one of his trailer descriptions is way off the mark... which is a perennial occurrence TBH...
    At the end of the day, that doesn't - and shouldn't - undermine the "good" work he has done in the past.
    Peace out, etc...

    I've said this before, but Jason and MSW were endorsed on air by author, Full of Sith co-host, and Star Wars.Com contributor Bryan Young (who has legitimate connections and friendships with individuals working directly for Lucasfilm and who has conducted interviews with various SW cast members), and he would not have given that endorsement if he did not see validity or merit in what Jason does as far as spoilers are concerned (although he personally has remained largely spoiler-free).
