I think Peter has given enough examples.  It seems to me he's claiming that some people,
perhaps more in some region(s), use the the expression with NO hint of implicit or
explicit will and no triggering context.  Peter, do you mean something like someone saying
"OK, I read in the paper this morning that xyz" when there's absolutely no way anyone
could conjure up elements in the situation that would call for assent, dissent, or other
"sentness" etc.?  OK, maybe so.
