Advices on improving from PeterPan2, 9-dan

Advices in his KGS profile are so good! I decided to copy them here

Tips on how2 get better:
A. Learn Best Moves: Study Pro-games ( or 48,000 Pro-games+Joseki search engine)
B. Study KGS 9d "even" games against [3 to 10 stones] weaker players, where only 1 side makes mistakes
C. All other games [below 8d, unfortunatelly] have SO many mistakes that U will B getting familiar w/ lousy moves, thus getting used 2 & learning them, but remembering them later as if they were good moves :-(
D. Yr level is always = 2 yr "reading ability"; no way around it, sorry. So, get better at reading: Do 5 to 10 daily. Playing is fun but it will NOT help U get better :-(
E. Join KGS Teaching Ladder, Lessons Room
F. Don't B cheap: Become a KGS+ member & enjoy weekly lectures; but beware, only the text-lectures are GREAT. But since you'll B a paying customer, U could request (to Glue & Jyem) more of the good ones ;-)
G When watching [hopefully only 8 or 9d] games: Try to guess the next move (instead of making irrelevant kibitz ;-) and then try to understand why you missed :-(
H. The Ultimate: Invest in yourself & get professional instruccion (preferible in groups, since privates are more expensive :-(

I think text lectures are more useful because later you can reveiw it yourself while audio lectures are more fun, but you cannot later review them.

I have no idea about the lectures (my kgs+ expired long ago) or his identity, but the advice still boils down to advice I've heard from other strong players:
1) For improvement, go problems > playing games
2) Study with a pro
3) Review pro games
4) Play strong players

i dont udnerstand the "text lectures are better" part either... which makes me assume that peterpan2 could be Alexander Dinerchtein himself :o (because he is one of the only kgs+ teachers who do text lectures (if not THE only)... :)

PeterPan2 is an obvious persona put on by someone strong to stay hidden. It has to be. No way around it, otherwise it won't make sense.

I don't understand the statement about the text lectures. I find the audio lectures to be easier to follow and learn from than the text ones. What am I missing?
