Re: No touch throwing or muppets in a circle?

Two distinct versions of no touch throws seem to be discussed in parallel here:

1: no touch throws with several feet distance between uke's head and nage's hand

2: no touch throws with only a few inches distance between uke's head and nage's hand

It seems most of us agree that 1 is nonsense, while 2 seems to be fairly common.
I would agree 99% but I still would not call someone taking ukemi instead of being punched in the nose a throw, as who exactly is throwing who? The person throwing the strike or do you throw yourself?
