Uh, no they haven't. Most have been claiming post-processing or some other setting is mostly responsible for the low framerates. I've seen shaders mentioned very, very little. In fact, late yesterday I had read through that entire thread and not seen a single person mention it until I posted back-to-back screens from medium to very high shaders at the same locale with a variation of 18fps.
Like Legend, I posted about it a few times trying to help others while my comments went mostly ignored and people continued putting along with very high shaders enabled while cursing Vista/Crytek/EA/Nvidia.
