And subsequently proceeded by legions of GW devotees and skeptics.  At least now we know the nexus of this debate.

Meh, it's not a serious offense.  Let's call it a venial grammar sin.

Precede
The   to precede means to come before (usually in time).

Examples:

 King George VI preceded Queen Elizabeth II.
(in time)

 The professor will precede the first lecture with his opening remarks.

 The flight simulator is unable to replicate the airframe shudder that precedes the stall.
Proceed
The to proceed means to go forwards, or to continue. The proceeds (always in the plural) means the profit arising from an event or sale.

Examples:

 As soon as security has removed the protesters, I shall proceed.
(proceed = continue)

 We are proceeding at pace.
(proceed = moving forward / moving on / progressing)

 Have you spent the proceeds from the disco already?
(proceeds = profit)

What user "Hospitaller" says. The complaint doesn't "precede" the weather report, it follows it. It was not only the incorrect homonym, it was the wrong word to begin with.

"If this stone block is wet, it is raining"...etc....

So how did the complaint  precede the report? I think subby sucks seeds.

It's not in the Bible so it can't be true.
