No, I dont see how its relevant at all, your post was about making silver and it was made before the subject post were even replied to, it was not about leveling your skills. That 90% was done in 300+ hours (and can be done by anybody over time), by following advice similar to what elwoodiath had given, to which you responded "pay to win". I simply responded because in my experience it is not pay to win.
Me having leveled skills on both accounts just shows that you get out what you put in. If you work on your skills with strategy its not hard to get them up and doesnt take 1000s of hours or need to pay for the baits. That was the point. That getting gold baits is not pay to win, as you dont have to pay unless you are just in a hurry to get there, then feel free to.
To answer your post, I have a small amount of premium on both accounts at the moment, my main account is from competitions, I paid for 10 days on my steam account when I got to 75% harvesting, to take advantage the skillup bonus and happy hour skill bonus. As for the rest of your post here, What does any of my skill levels on my accounts have to do with some people not having 8 hours a day to make 1000 silver? No its not relevant at all to what I am talking about.
