I thought the idea was to create two forums, "Speculation" and "suggestions" not strip out speculation entirely?

Spoilers and hints seems like a nice place for speculation.

Speculation goes in General discussion.

Depends... sometimes speculation can go under both... Safest bet is under spoilers since some speculation might include spoilers pertaining to sound file s and other stuff... as well as build upon information considered to be spoilerish.

Speculation should go to spoilers if it involves future content or puzzle solutions (What's in Tetsonot?, or How do the pod portals work?), or anything that could be considered as a spoiler even after it has been available for some time (such as precise locations of Relto pages or Bahro stones).
Historical speculation, or speculation about the Art or similar can go to History and Myths.
Very mild speculation can be in General, but expect it to be moved if it wanders into spoiler material.

However, if you're unsure of where to put something, I'd err on the safe side and put it in Spoilers.

So in other words, 'speculation' is no longer an option: re-catagorise, and plump for that one.

Nothing against you at all, Ian, but that seems kinda daft...

Doesn't seem too illogical to me. Seeing as speculation can often be right, it should be in the spoiler section.

I'm strongly inclined to agree with Ian. Speculation is (when it's right) a form of spoilerism. And since you don't know if you're right or not... into the spoiler section it must go. :)

It's not much the speculation per se - it's the fact that what is being discussed is often spoiler material even without the speculation. "How do the pod portals work" is a spoiler thread, even if speculative, because the pod portals are a spoiler.
