No. The twin prime conjecture is based on the heuristic
that n increases faster than log(n)^2.

The present conjecture is based on the heuristic
that n increases faster than log(n)^4.

You can keep on going, piling on extra conditions.
In general, every constellation that is not forbidden
is expected to occur an infinite number of times.

Wow!  The home pages of the groups just got incredibly ugly and dysfunctional in a complete appearance and function change which made it way worse and also deleted the "pictures" (a big picture of the number 2, in the case of primenumbers). Plus there are now giant ads obscuring most of the screen.

It seems to be a US/UK thing at present.
But no doubt they will make this pond-side
