I haven’t significantly changed my views because I haven’t seen much, if any, new evidence on the topic (I think the arguments/evidence you list above have already been covered and found insufficient by most critical thinkers on the topic).

And of course I’m not suggesting “a complete abandonment of individual outreach.” That’d be crazy :P
