But in APA land, it’s Friday June 27, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — KateNorlock @ 2:14 pm

Hold off on requests to be nominated for committees, which can only be done in the Member Services section of the APAonline site.  Of course, according to the site, “The Members Only section will be unavailable from Friday, June 29 through Sunday, July 1, 2012.”

It is unavailable today.

It is unavailable starting Friday.

Therefore, today is Friday.

VALID! Hmph.

  1. That’s our APA!

    Although the second premise is unsupported by the evidence. “The Members Only section will be unavailable from Friday, June 29 through Sunday, July 1, 2012” should be interpreted as: If it is now sometime between Friday and Sunday (inclusive) then the website is now unavailable. Correctly reformulated, you’re affirming the consequent.

    You little stinker!

    I argue the second premise was intended to be interpreted: The Members Only section is presumed to be available unless we are announcing unavailability. [For why else would they announce unavailability?]

    Who knows why the APA does most of the things it does?
