That may be awhile. I haven't picked it up for almost a year now...
What song is that? Here's RJ on Crossroad:

Play the Clapton version of Crossroads:
Happenin', mon, though I prefer the Cream version from way back.

If a TS is set up properly with a good blade it can produce a smoother
edge than the typical jointer.
If you go by the rules the jointer is used on only two surfaces, to
straighten the edge and flatten the face. The opposite edge is
straightened by thee TS. The opposite surface is flattened by a planer.
Back the edge that a TS cuts, I seldom have to even sand the edge even
if it is exposed.
I can't say. It was not always that way for me until I started buying
I recall in shop class in 1968 you would receive 3 licks if caught using
the jointer to surface more one edge and one side or to clean up a an
edge after going through the TS. ;~)
Maybe that was what those hand planes were for. ;~)
I think some guys were and are unreasonable... I cannot tell you how many
times I've uncovered defects on the first jointed edge or face of rough cut
that led me to joint the opposite edge and/or face so that the defect would
be removed by the thickness planer or saw in final dimensioning... I see it
as a lack of reasonableness in their position on things.
Then you would proceed with straightening the opposite edge as usual
with the TS, flipping the board, and cutting the board to width with the
defect on the waste side.
Same would apply to a face with a defect.
That depends on how uniform the board was to start with, and other
factors... It is not unusual for me to find that the rough cut board tapers
in thickness and/or width with the result being that much more wood is
removed from some areas than others during 4 squaring. Add in discoveries
about twist, cupping, checks, figure, grain direction changes, etc. and
changing the initial reference surfaces during preparation is not unusual at
all. Of course if grain and figure alignment and surface quality don't
matter for the intended use this doesn't matter much... just cram it through
like framing grade dimension lumber is prepared!
