Given that the OP's unduly forthright 'opinion' consists almost entirely of supposition culled from an extremely limited subset of anecdotal evidence garnished with meaningless hyperbole, I honestly don't care what he thinks, and nor should anyone else who favours reasoned scepticism above ignorant, self-righteous, tabloid-style diatribes and the raft of ill-informed speculation they invariably promote.

Don't think so, as OP doesn't need to be "sufficiently qualified" to express his opinion on the issue. Just saying what he/she thinks.
Good; then I feel vindicated in my decision to respectfully withhold judgement pending further investigation by those properly versed in the principles and methodology of behavioural neuroscience, and will endeavour in the meantime to overlook your misuse of the phrase 'entirely subjective' with respect to an emergent (but potentially legitimate) psychological phenomenon.
Whether or not it is "public ignorance" is not actually the case here - the OP has expressed his ideas which is how he sees them - as it has been determined many times in this thread, whether or not a person really has the condition or what the condition really is still entirely subjective.
