Response to plethoro (Reply #99)

105. "most smiles mean SOMETHING"/i.e. CAN mean many different things & you picked the one &

only thing out of all of those different things, without any kind of deductive test.

Your choice out of all of those possibilities is inferential and the fact that your choice is the one thing that you decided it is, i.e. collusion, reveals that that "conclusion" is more valuable to you than any and all of the other possibilities, including the possibility that you COULD be wrong and that the actual truth could be completely other than what you have decided it is without anything more than inference, a leap from a smile to one and only one conclusion.

Is it any surprise that someone might infer from your "case" that your conclusion, collusion, might be more important to you than the truth?
