[[[ You are asking silly questions, because no-one here knows the answers, there could be all kinds of reasons. ]]]
So let me get this straight, you say we ask silly questions because nobody here has the answers. Therefore we must speculate, then you decide to speculate yourself.
The questions are not silly, they're very legit because the facts don't jive. You don't need a factual answer to read between the lines. You don't seem to have a problem with reading between the lines, why should we?
