After seeing a comment, with an accompanying link, about grounds for criticising Robert Jordan
Really, no. Don't click it.
There are valid criticisms to be made of Robert Jordan, and probably there are ones you haven't considered yet, but somehow I doubt this is going that. You're just going to sit there and go "Yes, but I don't read/interpret the text that way" and "But what about..."
And then you'll get annoyed. We've been here before.
