Wikinews talk:Never assume
Never assume 
In working up a first draft of the long-discussed upgrade, I went through the existing essay expecting to have lots of ideas in need of preservation by weaving into the upgrade — and was bemused to find that almost all the old material is simply struggling to compensate for having recommended assuming anything in the first place.
There are a few ideas in the old version that could be at least partly reused, at some point — but they didn't seem to fit in the needed replacement essay on the primary theme that needs redress here, assumption. --Pi zero (talk) 03:34, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
