Discontinue the use of "assume" when referring to your work processes, except if needing to explain a professionally fatal error. (Enough said.) (Note: This is a series of blog reports about editing styles and rules as applied by Oil and Gas Investor magazine. The styles and rules do not always necessarily suggest using another style nor rule is grammatically incorrect.) Questions? Comments? I’m always glad to hear from you! –Nissa Darbonne, Executive Editor, Oil and Gas Investor, A&D Watch, Oil and Gas Investor This Week, www.OilandGasInvestor.com; ndarbonne@hartenergy.com
