Well, Portagie1968 (since you have not filled in your profile we have no idea who you are; what you drive; or what you camp in), you are relatively new and have no proven track record. Now you may very well be the most knowledgeable member on the forum. We just don't know you yet. I am sure over time we will and your statements will be accepted "Ex Cathedra" as well they should be.
Until then (and I am not there yet either), when I assert something to be "true" I try very hard to make sure it is (or at LEAST show where my stupid idea came from).
If I don't know something to be fact, I try to preface with IMO (in my opinion). Don't always as sometimes I am reiterating "What everyone knows." EVERY time I have been wrong, it is because I did not independently verify (meaning I checked it myself) and accepted what some other authority told me was true. I have also been wrong when I made an assumption not backed by facts I checked, but based on information some one assured me was the case.
