I have no choice but to come here, lest I cause irrecoverable offence at work.

It's 'Extract' not 'Extrapolate'!

It's 'Deprecated' not 'Depreciated'!

    deprecated and depreciated are similar in meaning in certain contexts (e.g software)

    @besnn nope, it really does not. When does something software related depreciate? That could only mean that it will probably become fully obsolete one day but has nothing to do with the immediate nature of deprecation. In my experience people always mean deprecate.

    @hjk101 this may be taking it a bit far, but MS DOS was both deprecated and depreciated, tho I see what you mean

    I'm not so sure about this - but English is not my mother tongue.

    You can extrapolate from the extracted data that at some point in the future shit will be on fire.

    And you can extract from the extrapolated data some points to prove your thesis.

    It's kinda obvious that the value of the software depreciates if it's built upon deprecated tooling.

    The deprecation of the tool XY led to the depreciation of our portfolio as marketing was wrong and our customers actually use and love this tool.

    @besnn it WAS deprecated and it HAS depreciated. No active action by the owners in the last; it just happened.
    It became mostly obsolete first, this is why it became depreciated and because there is no (or not enough) value or incentive in maintaining it they deprecated it. At least that is what happens now with OS and planned roadmaps. Didn't check the history of MS Dos nor do I recall a deprecation notice/EoL date.

    @IntrusionCM no native speaker either but LGTM. Quite clear they mean something different (even though that was not the point you made 😝)

    You are right.
    But you can't 'extrapolate' code from a class during a refactor.
