Yes. I have attempted this very technique (it doesn't work - protest that all you like it doesn't make your claim at all true). I've also attempted other means of trying to trick the game and CK into going along with it. Every attempt has ended with the game either crashing outright or with corruption in the save following shortly after introducing it. The game basically behaves as though you took the mod and shredded it with a copy of Snip.
As for who I am to judge, like it or not, I'm a competent modder with plenty of cred under my belt to be able to assess the truth or falseness of a claim. Yours is patently false, and Reddit is overflowing with plenty of other people who are just as determined to spread false information. So it's no wonder the place where this happens most often is also filled with the most "I don't know WTF is wrong with my game" posts. What's wrong with your game is you're listening to people who are CLUELESS about how to do things correctly and just assume that every single post there is verified as true and working. That's far from the case.
And no, I do not accept as fact what I know to be fiction. You can claim all you want that it works. My own experience and that of others I know to be competent modders says it's a lie. That's the fact here.
