207. I'm happy to negotiate
and restraint is good. I don't think it's dirty to say that some sort of retrospective reporting error could be expected, but the ground should swallow me if I even hint that it _proves_ (or offers strong independent support for) a red shift in the absence of other data.

Maybe I could make one more meta point about this "game," one I have made many times: I'm just as happy to "lose" as to "win," as long as we both feel at the end that the rules we made/played by together were fair. And with any luck, we might find some things to check out that hadn't occurred to us yet.

I agree with Febble that another thread makes sense. Either you can start, or I will keep working on my scenario of "what I think might've happened" and then figure out how to write it up.
