I've even seen villains with weaker flushes just check-call all the way down. If you have the nut flush, you definitely want to be stacking off against weaker flushes.
And with quads, you're probably not getting paid off regardless, but the times you do get paid off will be the times when your opponent has a pocket pair who doesn't believe that you could have trips or a straight/flush draw that wants to chase. Don't expect micro stakes villains to bluff more than 1 street.
I can see what you're saying about how there are exceptions to every rule, but I disagree with the specific examples you've given.
Nice point of a view!!! Nuts flush draw on the flop often could not get fifth colour, in the other hand, even with fifth colour, opponent can get full-house.
There were several times I've profit with slow play, more often opponents just folded against my last bet on the river.
I want know why this is happened... and make some hypothesis:
1. I had special authority at the table forcing my opponents believe my bets.
2. Opponents just don't want play against me using bluff.
3. It was just accidental circumstances.
