That's fine in this situation but in general there is literally nothing wrong with occasional inductive reasoning and it rustles my jimmies when people use that phrase in response to me using the word "assume" in general.

I know that is not what's going on in the context of your response but I had to get that off my chest.

Oh man. The weird thing is, I actually used apples in my example at first instead of peaches... but I edited my post. I should've left it the way it was.

I know that is not what's going on in the context of your response but I had to get that off my chest. You're using the phrase correctly, but a lot of people use that phrase as a golden ticket to invalidate all usages of the word "assume" in all contexts and it really bothers me.

you shouldn't assume that a lot of people are using it in this way. you know what they say about assuming.

2006? I lost a family member that year, a few months before my high school graduation. Sad But yeah, a decade can sometimes fly by.

you shouldn't assume that a lot of people are using it in this way. you know what they say about assuming.

You shouldn't invalidate my life experiences by assuming that my assertion that a lot of people use the phrase that way is out of assumption rather than out of personal experience.

You know what they say about assuming.

Ah, this thread is bringing me back. 2006 was when I was first breaking into the Posting business, and back then, the old vets of the biz were REALLY adamant about paying your dues. I was green as green could be back then, and the fans did not take to my posts very well. In fact, they were sometimes downright hostile. I know, I know-- it's hard to believe, but at one point, I was not the Poster you know and love today. But, I think that really helped me grow, you know? That initial adversity. It can break a lot of guys trying to get into the Professional Posting business, but if you are able to get through it, you're better off for it on the other side. It was tough, but I learned what worked and what didn't, and in a sense, I really learned a lot about myself AND the fans. I think they realized this too, and that's what has really produced this bond you see today.

Bringing Me Back,
Renzo Kukenson

T-Man, a journey of a thousand miles begins with those first few steps, so don't be ashamed! We all start somewhere, and we all fight our own battles to get where we are now. Just look at you now! You're doing great. Keep up the great work.
