An Experiment..........

Recommended Posts

I was told by someone on another site that often times the more direct and less detailed my posts are the more sense I make. I've also been told by some people in real life that I "explain" too much or give too much unnecessary detail when instructing people and it often loses them.

I'm not sure if this is true but I've decided to experiment by TRYING to keep my statments at 5 sentences or less for each response.
Obviously sometimes I'll have to post more if someone askes me a lot of questions, but I'm going to experiment with being brief and more direct and after a few weeks I'll examine the results of this experiment, lol.

Explaining something well,in a minimal number, of words is a skill requiring command of the language and understanding of the subject -- even if it is just an opinion. I welcome the experiment.

Is that your way of calling my words "food" for thought?

It is spelled "bologna." Remember the old Oscar Mayer Jingle -- Some ad exec figured out a way to burn this into my memory after almost 1/2 a century.  😵

"Junk" food would be more accurate.

Cool your jets sparky; sliced meat is spelled they way i wrote it here on America. What deli have you ever been to and seen it spelled baloney? Besides it was a joke. Since I'm always lamenting the impact of corporate influence. 

 

BTW Mr. Grammarist who lives in a glass house, you used incorrect word; Their is spelled "there. "

Are you sure spelling is part of grammar. 

 

@Troy  I was using the slang vernacular when I wrote "baloney" instead of "bologna". BTW, there is no such word as "grammarist".  It's "grammarian" or "grammatist".   And "their" is spelled t-h-e-i-r.  Regarding the case in point, it was a matter of using the word "their" when it should've been "there".  Also the first word of a phrase following a semi-colon is not capitalized.  

 @Del   Right.  Spelling does not have anything to do with grammar.

Troy you are trying to correct a writer. Then disagreeing with the Oxford English Dictionary , that is agreeing with the North American spelling. Wednesday Thursday Friday. It's Saturday I am resting like the Lord. Although I didn't work that hard.

In your dreams...  Your definition of "junk" conveniently eliminates the synonym for it which is "trash".

Lord get the sticks out your butts you grammar prudes. @Cynique you know as well as anyone what @Delano writes is often riddled with grammatical errors typos and the like. it is not just one post of his i was referring to. I only get on Del when decides to complain about someone else's writing. 

 

As far as baloney is concerned i was teasing. I thought you knew that, but were probably not amused since you ignored it -- at least until the self appointed Tsar of grammar got involved.
