Do your favorite authors dumb down their writing to attract more readers, and do you?


I saw a reference to this practice on a HP post recently and it got me wondering. I had never even thought about doing this. Just wondering if it is widespread on HP and beyond.

    Good point about communicating technical info in a hub. I wasn't thinking about that issue. I do think it's ok to have a couple words that may be new to people. Good to learn new vocab. at any age, right? I read to learn too.
