The turn is sufficiently large coming with managing the vertical, horizontal (ie speed), and lateral sides to need good judgement, while 15 is fairly easy. It seemed from your post that you were referring to 15 which has hardly any turn at all, and the g/s reffering to the LDA which would lead you to either runway .
I said in that post nothing about rw 15 but i said: "I just did this nicely". What do you think "this" means except doing what is depicted on the chart you presented? And what a little turn is, is relative. To me a 90 degree turn at that alt is a breeze too. To you a 10 degree turn may be huge. Sorry, but saying i did something else than depicted on the approach plate is plain accusing of lying without any evidence, just making assumptions, like they have a habit of on that other forum.

Which is the complex part of following something like a river? Vertical profile and speed are standard parts of a mental g/s. And a *little* turn in the end is not messing that up for me, neither do i forget to flare. I land nice and soft in the touchdown zone, thank you.
Btw, i do this stuff all the time, when i come in at an angle and am too lazy to fly all the way to 10 mi straight in front of the rw. A nice approach in this respect is Genoa rw 11, where you have to do the g/s flying north along the mountains. You should practice that one a bit more often, then this "challenge" is a breeze.
