Edit: and for pb...this is why you should never overstate your case. Fiddy is correct in stating he did not claim it as a cause, and imply requires reading his mind. If you stick to what is simply verifiable, then you do not give people this legitimate complaint about what you said.
LOL I did not overstate anything, I said basically what you wrote in the first paragraph(underlined) and the keyword is expectation. Why did he use the word "expectation?"
