While 'found' was the example I used, I drew my conclusion from the post as a whole. I see how you have reached a different conclusion and that's fine. We'll have to agree to disagree.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deephow
As a projected hypothetical, speaking from the POV of 16 yr old Allie hating EJ b/c of what she's learned. Because I think it's safe to say that at this moment Allie doesn't hate EJ. Might not love him, but doesn't hate. Although honestly we have no idea, as she is never on enough to give much indication. But I don't think the post was saying right now Allie hates EJ because she found about his raping Sami. I took it more like the "at-some-point" Allie would hate EJ if she found out what he did. I don't think the idea was that a six year old girl would or should know what rape is. I am again speaking for posters so I don't want to make a habit of this, and I could be wrong - found is past tense - but I really have doubts that was the initial intention.
It could have also just been another typo. I guess only Vicky can give a definitive answer =)
With all due respect, just because you feel it's safe to say Allie doesn't currently hate EJ, doesn't mean nobody else does. People develop entire personalities for characters based on flimsy evidence all the time.
LOL - oh I am WELL aware of this!! Have you read my posts - haha, I do it all the time, so I know =) In my crazy shipper mind Allie totally hates EJ, But reasonably I can't say that for certain.
Point really is that an an inference was made as to a poster possibly suggesting a little girl should know what rape is, and I was simply trying to counter that inference, and basically debate how past tense "found' doesn't have to mean past tense from now or to refer to something that has happened in relation to "today". Or that maybe not so much stock should be put into the single word "found" and its tense as a basis for drawing such a conclusion.
