I'm not sure who you're referring to, but speaking for myself, I don't take any offense. You don't need to bother with your proposed disclaimer, because I don't take your speculation seriously enough to need any disclaimer.

I merely choose not to give any credence to Internet rumors and speculation. I'm willing to wait for real facts to emerge. Since the USCG has announced that they will investigate, I'm confident that a useful report will eventually come out, and it will be worth waiting for.

At some point I'll get bored enough with your repetitious re-posts of your previous posts, and other circular logic, that I'll just stop reading this topic and move on.

I have the opposite view of some of you. It seems you're determined to stir up controversy by posting speculation. Then when some of us refuse to go along, you get offended and try to kick the hornets nest even harder.

I've seen (and participated in) enough safety investigations to realize that new, previously undisclosed facts often lead to new and unexpected interpretations of events. And if not, so be it. I'm just willing to wait to see what the real truth is.
