Hey all, I am Currently working on my Bachelors Thesis and Conceptnet, especially the causes relation has an important part in it. I would like to ask if someone can tell me if the r/causes relation is Transitive in conceptNet.
The only Thing i found about it was a Text from 2004 where they talked about the EffectOf Relation and that this was transitive. 
So I would like to know if this is still true for the Causes Relation in ConceptNet 5. 
Thanks for your Help.

Sorry for the late reply, I've been traveling. It is not transitive and that's been discussed a lot over the years.
