So, 10 pages of experience, heresay, science, pseudo-science and common sense and what do we know:
1. You can make a starter, or not.
2. You can aerate a starter, or not.
3. You can pitch an aerated or not aerated starter into an aerated or not aerated wort.
4. You can use dry yeast and rehydrate, not rehydrate, make a starter or don't and pitch that into an aerated or non-aerated wort.
5. Wort can be aerated with O2, Air, both or neither.
6. Stir plates stir and shake plates shake and both, either or neither may or not work by incorporating air into a starter, but both probably keep yeast in suspension - which may or not be better.
7. Yeast reproduce aerobically and anaerobically - which may or not be desirable in your beer.
8. Underpitching is bad, except when it's good. Overpitching is hard to do, but might be bad.
9. Underaerating may be bad or it may be okay. Overaerating is bad, except not really.
10. Yeast are very fragile and must be cared for intently, except that almost any process or combination of processes will result in perfectly acceptable home brew beer.
