I love that you keep trying to move the goal posts long after being defeated, it's pathetic! It's not about what you think, it's about what you said. There is no plausible reason to believe you thought anything different from what you said in that thread, unless you were trolling, which only adds to the pile of evidence I'm compiling against you... So, which is it? Were you expressing your honest thoughts or were you downplaying my position in that thread in a clearly failed attempt to subvert the discussion?
That's not how burden of proof works. You have burden of proof because you are making a baseless claim against my formal logical deduction. By default, all copper cables can implement Thunderbolt and USB 3.0, the specifications themselves do not require anything other than generic conductors, they only require a specific number of conductors (which in the case of USB 3.0, the Dock Connector exceeds by over three times whereas the Lightning Connector barely meets the spec), at least for speeds up to 10Gbps (beyond which you may have to go optical, so the Lightning Connector won't do, either).
Geez, educate yourself already! You should feel embarrassed, your ignorance about pretty much everything is abysmal!
EDIT: Removed my incorrect reference to an appeal to ignorance fallacy.
