Oh, really? Then, why did I spend over 30 years fixing synthetic oils damage to early parts that did NOT have the correct metallurgy and/or hardness to use that junk.

A roller cam, induction hardened engine, or differential may well work just dandy with 0W-nothing synthetic "oil", but not an earlier part made out of silly putty metals.

After trying to work with Bel-Ray oil people trying to make their stuff work for over 5 years in components that had correctly hardened parts, and only finding bad results, we finally went back to natural oils, and the oil failures stopped.

So, you now see, I am not ignorant about today's snake oils, nor the metals they cause to fail. Next time you want to call someone as not knowing, learn what they do know....before proving you don't know them, nor their experience at all.
