    I had the most frustrating back and forth with someone on the FTDNA forums before. He was trying to convince me that P312 arose in 900 AD. He was writing as if he was an expert and had so many inside contacts. Just one of his comments of self-praise: "I don’t want to use big words about myself, yet I have to describe it. I usually see the error of a "mathematical system" and the logical errors. I see instinctively. In most cases, I'm always right. I am wrong too, but my vision is usually correct."

    Anyway, he was writing that Hungarian geneticists have recognized the genetic site TheMyTrueancestry and they are now writing a study on the results that is not yet public. He was saying that the algorithm of the MyTrueAncestry page is better than the mathematical algorithm of FTDNA. While admitting that there are flaws, he claimed that a "skilled professional" knows what they are. He reiterated that a team of scientists made up of internationally renowned professors and geneticists recognise its credibility. They also took a lot of measurements and this is an independent confirmation of the positive credibility of the site.

    He was never able to tell me who these "internationally renowned professors" were but I was just expected to take his word for it. Naturally, I didn't take his perception of the site or his theories seriously. He was actually the only reason that I uploaded my DNA to the site so that I could point out its flaws.

    Finally pulled the trigger and deleted the old mytrueancestry account.. so many meaningless features it became impossible to navigate. It was fun, but I guess not good for much.

    If I would have a company I would definitely hire their marketing team, each time they come up with something new that draws your attention and triggers you to pay money, while scientifically andd historically its complete bullshit.
    Of all the countries, this is possibly the most beautiful. All that is beautiful and can be rarely seen in
    other countries can be seen everywhere here... Here live the people who wear the cleanest clothes and prepare the
    most flavorful dishes... Of all of God’s servants, the local people are the most compassionate and merciful...

    An ad of theirs popped up on my Facebook. Uploaded my DNA from Ancestry DNA, although I'm tempted to do my 23andme results as well to see if things line up. Interesting enough results, but as a complete DNA novice I found the layout confusing and I can't say I'm compelled to spend any money on this site.

    The only thing that surprised me was Ostrogoth; I had to look up what they were, but I suppose it makes sense.

    Can someone who hasn't paid for the service tell me if this is a preview or if they show this to everyone?
