    Do you suffer from wordiness, the inclination to use 4 words where 1 would have worked, or a whole paragraph where you only needed on sentence? You may want to join OOOA - or On and On and On Anon.  the organization that will help you stifle yourself a bit. 

    The idea is that we share ideas about how to stuff a sock in it here or talk a little about other things - with as few words as possible.  and these . . . will be forbidden! (well, at least for me, since I'm the one who overuses them etc. etc.)

    Ditto!  Edit, edit, edit - but first, see if the Hub would actually be better split into several separate ones.  Maybe you are putting all of your information into one basket, instead of balancing the load.

    Sorry this may be a little to wrdy for this thread but it is relevant I promise.

    When I was younger and went to church with my parents we always thought it was very sweet that every time the preacher stood at the pulpit his wife would blow a kiss to him from her piano. It was a ritual every Sunday morning. One day my mom commented to the preacher about this and told him how sweet it was. He looked at her dead serious face and roared with laughter. He then told my mom that the KISS was a reminder to him to Keep It Short Stupid!

    But wriitng for the net needs KEYWORDS and so the more you mention KEYWORDS the more likey your KEYWORDS are going to be found by Google that looks for KEYWORDS. KEYWORDiness is not a fault it is just KEYWORD talking.

      I'm wordy.  I know it.  It's how I am.  People don't have to read what I write.  I have to say I don't use four words when one would do.  I just write fifty sentence when six wouldn't do (as far as I'm concerned).  When I'm writing professionally I don't do "the wordy thing".  (That's why I write here - so I can do "the wordy thing"  They have to come out some time, or my head will explode.  lol  )  If I need/want to be concise I can be.   hmm
