I hope i can post this question here.
I would like to know what this means:
Anything to go by
I think you can't translate it literally to Dutch.
For example in the following sentence:
'' if the reactions on the forum are anything to go by...........''
Does it mean?: ''om de reacties op het forum maar als voorbeeld te nemen........''
I hope someone can help me, maybe with more examples to explain it.
