I have to wonder why if “[you] are not and admin [..] and can’t make a ruling” why you continue to be so stubborn about the issue, but i guess I’ll have to go without get an answer to that. As for you musings:
There IS something in the book, the sentence that says “he never knew what he did when he was well wined-up.” Summarizing that with my own words afterwards is not “fabricating” information.
I gave the example of other riders as a parallel of another time when things are implied by the author but not directly stated yet are still true.
You took “it seems likely with nothing from the books to back it up” out of context, as I SPECIFICALLY said that’s not what i was doing, that I was basing it off evidence in the book.
I have GIVEN a reasonable explanation for the information, and even a rephrasing that addresses your concerns. But since you are willfully misinterpreting everything I say so that you can condescendingly “wonder” why we’re having this conversation, we can go ahead and end it. This is not important enough for me to continue arguing it.
