It has been my understanding that if a person is in the 15% bracket, then the LTCG rate is only 10%, at least until that person fills the 15% bracket.

As a result of my understanding (or misunderstanding), I am very confused by this series of posts.

Can someone clarify?

Your understanding is quite correct.
