@Whatnow 

 

It was not my post.  I never heard of him and have no knowledge of behind the scenes speculations.

 

It was @JohnnyEager  statement about her mentor retiring .  My response was that none of us could know what Shawn is thinking.

I respectfully disagree. I love Shawn and Isaac together - I think she brings out the best in him Smiley Happy I do agree her show last night (Tuesday 4/9) was AWESOME!! I ordered so many things from that show, I surprised myself! Her presentations were wonderful and she was calm and fun Smiley Happy One of her best shows, IMO.

I think that her former Boss and Mentor having just retired might have put the fear of God into her.

That's a large assumption and quite a bit of speculation.  No one could possibly know how SK would respond/react to his retirement.


I appreciate JohnnyEager's careful wording here. Saying that you think a specific event might have triggered a specific reaction makes it clear it is speculation, and not actual knowledge.

 

While no one knows SKs reaction, there's a fair amount of insightful speculation across these boards.

Very wise @Hedge !

 

Quite often it's not the speculation, it's who is being speculated about that causes the consternation.

 

Countless threads and posts have been written about a particular host's weight loss, but that appears to be quite acceptable, even though virtually everything said is speculation.

@JohnnyEager, I don't think that it is "acceptable."

In this instance I didn't pick up on any consternation re: who it was about.

 

People will speculate. And I've read some wildly strange conclusions in these forums over the years.

 

Doesn't bother me as long as it's not put out there as if one is stating fact, when it's just speculation.
