They are not equally crazy. Just for the record, I'm not telling you to hit an exact page account. I'm just saying you should look through all a few more times to be safe.
You should absolutely do whatever you want. It's your script. It's your life.
But please understand, I've (professionally) read, covered and done notes on I don't even know how many scripts at this point. I've written scripts (nothing great). I've re-written & polished scripts (nothing big). I've worked on movies. And I've read queries, received & read countless submissions, etc. from all levels of writers. You get a very innate sense about things at a certain point.
All the best to you on this. Truly.
