You've posted blatantly false claims. If you post claims like "1+1
equals 2 because the moon is made of cheese", then you're a moron, even
if 1+1 does equal 2. And even if some of your arguments are valid, if
you can't yourself tell the valid arguments apart from the crackpot
claims that doesn't help your credibility.

I think what the script shows is that there can be significant problems
using tmpfs to hold large amounts of data, even if you have a lots of
swap so that running out is not an issue. It doesn't show that the
number of writes would increase on average.

In general you seem to be quite clueless about the actual behavior of
cache/swap, but you've still continued to make various claims about it.
