Dear Eric,

You are dissecting sentences and taking a few words per sentence right out of a meaningful paragraph in an effort to put a negative spin on their meaning. I guess some readers enjoy doing that but I prefer reading the entire paragraph in order to get a clear understanding of the author's intent.

You said;

When people publish messages they need to keep in mind what assumptions people are going to make when they read them. And when people read messages, the need to realize that the writer might not have used the perfect language to get his message across to every Tom, Dick, & Harriet.

I disagree...most people don't make wild assumptions based on a few words plucked out of a paragraph. How can any author write and be responsible for a biased assumption some reader wants to cast on a few select words? Maybe we need to teach the Tom, Dick and Harriet to read the entire article or post before assuming anything. :)

Keep Foolish and Prosper,
