Brads have no heads and have no holding power.
May get away with it on a door stop, but Id use finish nails instead.

They work fine if you toe nail the brads.

You were given the method to refute that, yet nothing so far.

Time will eventually broaden your knowledge, hopefully, if you'll allow it, you may even catch up.

I've been remodeling rooms here one at a time following the tornado over the past couple years. I've had to pull door trim & baseboard that I originally nailed with a pin nailer. I tried pulling the brads through the trim, but that proved to be more difiult than I had thought. Instead I've been cutting them off flush on the back side with the multitool saw.
I use the longest pin the nailer will hold for trim work, so they'll reach through the draywall and catch a stud. I needed to use a flat bar to pop the trim off the wall also, to keep from breaking it. For little nails they hold pretty dern good.

End nippers that are not to sharp will pull the nails with a pry sideways or grab one with a needle nose and roll them up on the nose..

I tried that and 1/2 the time the brad would snap off. If they'd snapped off at or below the surface, that would have been fine, but that wasn't the case. Rather than fighting it I just buzzed them off.

You said you'd never heard of them, so now's your chance.

Anyway, back to business. . .
the trick is not to do more work in finding the answer than the OP is willing to do.

I didn't think the idea of a thing called a nailing schedule is so radical. My bad!

Normally, the person who makes the allegation (wide crown brads exist) bears the burden of proof,
"maxim semper necessitas probandi incumbit ei qui agit"
but in this case Mr. w is behaving badly.

OK.

Hint: The site that shows this rhymes with "ranger" but I will say choosing your search terms is very important; where you put the quotes, etc..
Due diligence.

And I just did more work in finding the answer than Mr. w is willing to do.
