I am wondering which sentence is the correct one here:
1- One cannot judge someone on the basis of hearsay and what others say.
2- One cannot judge someone based on hearsay and what others say.
I have reviewed the similar thread, but as you can see there, there are two absolutely different answers! One person has mentioned that they mean the same, and the other one has tried to distinguish them.
Please kindly let me know about it. Thank you.
