My point was that no matter what happened in the private setting he has a bigger advantage at extrapolating from that incident because he was there.
Not to be argumentative but you are completely missing my point. No one is denying the poster's version of that event. However, extrapolating from one event to assume that it is very common is not warranted. That is my point.
People could choose to not believe him but at the end of the day being there is the best insight into an event
Yes. The key phrase being "insight into an event". One event does not make a pattern.

Does the fact that it happened to that person in that instance negate decades' worth of events in mine and others' experience where such behavior was not commonly observed?

At this point, I will drop the matter as it has derailed the thread far too long.
