I read the entire thread about what was being discussed but your vaguely worded question escaped me as to what you were seriously talking about.
As a matter of fact I've never lost a fish to ich, whether it's salt water or fresh water so I am not sure who you got me mixed up with. There are also many many people that successfully treat their fish with a hyposalinity quarantine. Just because they aren't posting in this thread doesn't mean they aren't here.
If you're referring to my issue with velvet, then that's the time when the spots showed up on a fish that I added to a tank where I was performing hyposalinity to take care of my ich once and for all. Never seen a problem with sickness other than ich at my LFS
so I made the mistake of trusting him. When the first sign of velvet showed up I noticed it as I was leaving to go downstate to take my mother to a fairly important doctor appointment. By the time I came back it was too late for the 2 fish I lost. But you're right; it was OBVIOUSLY because I took no option to treat my fish.
If you still haven't found proof that a fallow period and QT treating fish works then check back with me in a month and I will show you an ich free tank after I transfer my 20 reef over.
