If that be the case, then any conditioner that softens leather will do the same. Which is somewhat true. In the real world, you would have to constantly soak the leather in neetsfoot to have that happen. Normal use just keeps the leather supple without damage.
One of my saddles was ~20 years old when I sold it and I would condition it 2 or 3 times per year - heavily. The leather was soft and supple, and nowhere near broken down.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
