I may need to stay off the board for a while. The level of ability of people to
read non-existent tea leaves, get historical events out of order and make resulting erroneous interpretations and read between the lines to find things that aren’t there is rivaled only by their ability to believe misinformation fed to us by people wanting to negotiate against us.
Someone says they’re afraid of something being our motive for an action. Someone else repeats they heard it was our motive. Then that little nugget that was created out of thin air gets passed around until half of our fan base swears the fabricated account is practically scripturally accurate.
