Where did I say that speculation isn't reaching?
Did you not understand the difference between blind speculation and extrapolation from existing facts?
In fact I didn't think anything I said was controversial & was being generous saying it was speculation in the first place.
Still don't understand the difference, do you?
Again, I was bending over backwards here. First he used the word speculating so I used the word speculating to answer him (and even explained that it wasn't mindless; that it comes from other known info. But hey, go ahead & just keep ignoring that!). Then he used reaching, so I used reaching to answer him. Simple as that.
