I'm not so sure that it is in this case. While there are some situations that
are so intensely no-win that a god-like writer would still not be able to turn
then favorably, if you keep finding yourself in such situations, then even if
your professional relationship skills are a model of perfection, you need
to take a look at whatever processes you're using to look for work...

This statement demonstrates correlation, not cause, which is a popular
way to make statistics lie.

Andrew you are not the first person to post this gem and you probably
won't be the last. But the next person to post it should know that it
is a well-known statistical fallacy.
