Hmm, Stephen, this is an interesting statement. Usually the word
"implies" carries with it a logical connotation. I am not familiar with
the idea that an author could "imply" something otherwise.

If in 1 Cor 11:5 you are saying Paul is implying the negation (that a
woman who prays or prophesies with her head covered does
not shame her head), but not that he is not implying it logically, but
some other way, then could I ask how that implication is determined?

This is a hermeneutical question, to be sure, and we should probably
not pursue it anymore, but it does get my logical fur up when I see
this interpretation of 1 Cor 11:5 being used as the guiding light to
interpret 1 Tim 2:12, or 1 Cor 14:34-35.
