Please, don't pretend you don't understand my question and answer one
I'm not interested in.  

You made a specific strong statement -- still quoted above.  Either,
it was a pure speculation from your part, or you have factual data to
back it up.  If the latter, please make them public -- in the interest
of rigor and openness as you promote.  Otherwise, let's drop it and
call it a day.
