"Any particular reasons for taking these forecasts more seriously than all the others, including the ones that say the opposite?"

No reasons at all. But what I did like about the site was that it offered forecasts for the 20 or 30 items everyone else is making forecasts, too. So accuracy and accountability might be easy to measure

Also, I really liked the format they used for their formats, which was a chart showing changes over time rather than a single number. Their (assumed) technique invites doing reverse engineering with one's own neural net. In other words, can I guess what data they are using for theirinputs and produce similiar charts? Would those charts have any predictive ability? I don't know. But projects like that are fun to explore.
