  •  Effectively. (6+ / 0-)

    There are lots of unambiguous declarative adverbs available to characterize just how "dead" this well is.  Effectively isn't one of them.  When a particular word is chosen that leaves lots of wiggle room, I have to assume it's because that wiggle room is needed in order to avoid a blatant lie that could well come back to bite them.  They know the well is still dangerous, but dare not admit it.
