I kind of stay away of this type of broad generalizations as I found myself dumb in many respects (just because I am not educated in that particular domain) No matter how intelligent you are you will not be able to grasp all the aspects of a situation requiring skills in a certain domain and, inevitably you will take dumb decisions which puts you in one of the halves you mentioned below. Think about it :-)

I have not extensively researched the sources for all that info saying it is possible because I decided to screw the top to the frame

not sure why there is so much misleading info

Because its a statistical fact that half of the human population is dumber than the other half. The top half is usually too busy fixing the problems caused by the bottom half to have time to post in depth information on the internet.

Also blame advertising. That alone gives lots of run of the mill folks incentive to start a blog or a YouTube channel and get followers so they can increase exposure which in turn gets them more views and more ad dollar revenue.

So advertising ruined the internet.

I have had some luck with stickering smaller plywood pieces and tossing a floor fan on it overnight. The warping wasn t completely gone but it made it good enough to use.

ControlFreak – I typically dont store full sheets. I bring home what I need for a project and even if i wont be getting to it right away break it down into rough stock, label it, and store it on my plywood cart.
