Do you always make assumptions like this when you have incomplete
information? Your interpretation of the OPs writing is sloppy at best
because you still don't know if your interpretation is even right.

Again, you are making assumptions that still are unfounded. The
wording does give one the opportunity to think the OP may have
deviated, but there is no actual proof. The wording is vague. The OP
has not yet replied back to clear up what was meant by the writing.
You are also making the assumption that the OP is male. There is
nothing in the email address that gives any kind of hint to gender.
For any of us to assume that people taking on the LFS project are male
and not female is rather arrogant. It would give any woman the green
light to call any one that does that sexist.
