if i came across critically, it is a problem with the ambiguous nature of the "i am as sure as i can be" comment which is the highest degree of confidence available on ispot and i take to mean that you believe the identification to have a very high likelihood of being correct. I interpret this as meaning "I am familiar with all salient features and have been able to discern them in this photo". However, it seems that quite different interpretation is place on it by others.
