Just wanted some opinions from people who are a lot more plugged into the forum culture than I am as i'm relatively new to it.

It seems that there is a lot of controversy on whether it is ok to speculate on a given topic by giving you opinion whether it is based on anything or not.

For example, there are numerous threads about Mason & Deitchler out there, no one seems to have much fact based info on what is going on with them. However there are a ton of opinions, and in a lot of cases posters are being accused of only starting rumers for stating theirs.

I think its ok to speculate, but if you have nothing more than a hunch, why throw it out there for others to take and run with?
