Nope, and I do not see how that applies. Scott lays down ironclad rules, criticizes those who do not abide, but provides no credentials other than opinion. That is fine for a critic, but he also then says as a pizza maker, paraphrasing, if you want to see my pizza, look at this professional pizza. That don't fly.
FYI, looking at the photos of the floor laid on Gene's oven, there are 3 brick laid out of course, one whole, 2 halves, can you find them?
