“If any of you actually did that, you’d know what the problem is”

I think think I said I do it all the time.

Once I wanted to cut a half circle, with the drill in mind you, and during a momentary lapse of reason, did not clamp the wood down. Six stitches in my thumb later I was back with it clamped down. I was stupid and in a hurry, but if not for that it can be done.

So having the drill in or out, there is still risk. Firmly clamping the wood down mitigates some of the risk and I clearly stated, “securely clamped down and table locked”.

I’ve cut 4” disc’s using a hole saw this way.

Did I indicate there was no risk? No. You take a risk every time you turn on a machine, but you work safely to mitigate the risks.
