comment Can you negate a positive without implying the opposite?
Saying "wasn't bad" doesn't imply something was good. It's a passive expression used to communicate mediocrity. As a teacher, if I say "your paper wasn't bad," it means you still need to work on it.

I am ashamed of the fact that I didn't proofread my own question before posting. But the quaint phrase stays, if only out of spite for your derisive remark.

I like your phrasing and it actually helps me with another question, but this more describes the position rather than a skill.
