First page is a bunch of crap. That's why as a shooter you learn to perform scope hold over and under depending at which distance your scope (if a standard crosshair) is zero'd and at which distance you are shooting. If you can't figure that out, then you shouldn't be hunting.

Well, on that basis, one should be against any sort of Ballistic Drop Compensating (BDC) reticles, i.e. the multi-point shotgun, bow or, crossbow sights, or even firearm optics and any optic with inputs for elevation adjustment. They all do the same thing but, less effectively.

There was some crap on that review page talking about how crossbow bolts are sealed and behave differently under different temperatures and pressures... Temperatures and pressures have nothing to do with sealed or unsealed projectiles.

Not that I care what's acceptable for hunting- I have no need or interest in it. But, for accurately adjusting a point of impact for a given range, I think it's a nifty little device.
