Main Question or Discussion Point

I can't even claim to understand 'spin' as a property (even after reading that big thread about it :P) but I'm sure with the amount of discussion that generated, this could be worth talking about

I think title is misleading. "Image of spin" means nothing. They measure some property and they state it can be linked to spin - OK, but that's not different from Zeeman effect, or from reasults of Stern–Gerlach experiment. I can show spectra and point my finger to two lines calling them "image of spin".
