    Re: Length of some comments

    Perhaps some people are missing Outdoors's point: if you've got something really important to say, say it as succinctly as possible to ensure that as many people as possible will read it.

    Dylan MacVillain confession: 95% of the time I skip over long posts, at most offering a passing glance. Reading everything on this great site would be a full-time job.

    Re: Length of some comments

    I Kind of regret starting this thread and upsetting a few of the novelist's.

    I did say at the beginning that I do understand why some post's need to be longer.

    I was trying to bring attention to the lengthy comments that fly off into outer space,that the average reader(me) gets bored of reading before the point is made.

    Re: Length of some comments

    I wouldn't be too upset about upsetting anyone.

    You have brought up a valid point in reference to the waffling that often accompanies extraordinarily long posts. I am guilty of this from time to time, though I try to use it as a technique to drive my final points home, and provide associations with anecdotal evidence.

    Some of us on these boards have a also learned to break things down in a simple manner.

    I use to egregiously use a plethora of million dollar words when I was younger, and many ignorant (not an insult....just a truth) individuals would ask me what these words meant. Unfortunately, my points often got lost in a vacant stare and several vocabulary lessons. They would eventually label me nerd or a geek (neither of which I bother to deny).

    As I grew older, I figured out that in order for me to make sure that individuals got the points I was trying to communicate (especially historical and technical points) that I would have to take entire concepts that are easily defined in a few less used words and describe them in their totality using simple words that many could understand. My writing and speaking patterns were forced to change in order to relate to the "everyman".

    There was one side effect to this. Some people just didn't have the patience to read or listen to the whole damn thing.

    Well....I say "fuck it." I'm going to have to write in a style that most people can understand without referring to a dictionary or thesaurus every other sentence. If some people do not have the patience to read it, then it's no skin off my nose.

    Ironically I've encountered more hostility by virtue of expanding colloquialisms and dictionary definitions than viciously expounding the most vulgar profanities. It's a sad political dilemma which mirrors the predictability of the pliable masses, to which politics exploits most ruthlessly.

    Sure, from my perspective, I see MRA's having a greater knowledge of words and semantics, better arming our overall capacity to oppose and defeat what ails us. To be forever inquisitive and throw words around in an inventive and questioning approach is a revolutionary and necessary thing.
