I kinda left it alone because in the end you proved me right. the whole state bit. Since the definition didn't just stop at describing probability as a state that means the sentence was to be taken as a whole.
Probability = "the state of being likely or probable." = positive term. :)
Also, I stepped back a bit and was watching to see were things were headed. Remember if a conversation starts to go to far south, stop responding and report the person if they are breaking the rules. The staff will see it.
