Let's try to keep things in perspective.
People were singing Burkie's virtues when HF rated them #6 and #9.
Now that HF rates them #20, the same people claim that it means nothing.
Maybe the emperor's new clothes are not that pretty...
HF's ratings are opinions.
Feel free to disagree.
But don't laud the merits of someone based on that opinion, and then turn around 1-2 years later and claim that opinion is worthless.
