It's the easiest one to defend and uses the least amount of logic.

Personally, I don't care *much* if someone hypes their product as long as they stay within the bounds of hype-vs-dishonesty AND as long as they do not expect me to become an acolyte or true believer in their MA religion.
Second, Stutely teaches and sells products on subjects where fraud abounds, pressure points, power hitting, etc.
Again, easy to dismiss as "just another fraud" because he seems to fit that category.
When TEACHING he seems like a stand-up, honest guy, trying to help people learn:
Where people need to watch and listen to what he actually says is that (as far as I can recall) he doesn't claim "pressure points magically knock people out" or "always work" etc. WHILE HE IS TEACHING.
He claims that all things being equal, hitting in a pressure point is better SOME of the time against SOME opponents.
He points out explicitly that some people are affected very/relatively little, or that sometimes you will not hit a point correctly during dynamic movement.
Do pressure points exist and work sometimes?
Of course they do. Stick a finger in your own eye and keep pressing; eventually you'll move your head/eye away.
Brachial plexus? Funny bone? Nerves running over bone. Some are hit-able, some maybe not.
I don't know Stutely but I have watched his tapes and firmly believe he has taught me useful things.
Also a caveat, I am personally rather insensitive to most pressure points but if you hit me hard enough it adds to the effect.
So in my opinion there is stuff to learn when he is teaching and definitely the hype gets in the way when he is selling.
Is is worth the money? My experience is he charges too much but that is just me.

Towards the end of the video:
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE ACCURATE.
ACCURACY IS RIGHT OUT OF THE WINDOW.
I listened carefully. If you have to play semantics people have a right to be leery. I won't comment on the "winanyfight" at the bottom of the vid or the instant drop.
The implication and ease is right there in the video.

The title of this thread does not ask specifically for information related to his martial art style and neither can I divulge any information regarding it.
However, I have some personal experience with/ knowledge of Mr. Stutely, and I can genuinely say he is not a good man. Neither is he a trustworthy man.
