Overly worded useless language

    I notice many times, in these forums, that there are some that write long winded, wordy threads. Are these people incapable of speaking simply and intelligently?

      I like the long replies, actually...it is time spent ...a time of expression..to communicate..it is always good to communicate..

        What I don't like is when the next ten posts decide to reply to those long posts and quote the whole thing.

          I'm doing my best to remain clear and understandable, I try with very few words and such.

          You're good, the responses you give may sometimes be wordy, but at least their intelligently assembled.

        what does it matter whether a comment is long or short? Do u not feel that what matters more is whether  the comment is meaningful or not -whether it is interesting or not. 

        I have seen some times very long one which are very interesting and some times very short one people writing with no relevance just to show off as if they are they smartest one in world (even that type of tone may be also ok, but  such quickies also sometimes have tone that all others are fool).

          It's not that at all, it's more about the over usage of language. How many words does it take to tell another person that you love something? And is it necessary to write long segments of the bible? Can one not speak for the self? If it takes a million years for one to say something simple, then their probably not as smart as they believe themselve's to be.

        I like long .comments.. long or short let me know if they really liked it or just saying .unless they say ..great hub... doesn't let me know if they really like it. or they are just trying to be nice. but different personalities like to comment different.

      Well, some people can type fast and they may not be able to delineate from a circular pattern of random creativity, or even passive subliminal progressions. If many words take up enough space, then there is less room for doubt. It is a matter of intelligence and the ability to weave a fabric that may one day be a tapestry on the wall of eternity, from whence we came and surely must return. Now, There are many variants that I could expound upon here today, but in the spirit of condensation, I will precipitate no longer

      I like short,concise, to the point responses. If they want to write a long response,then make it a hub.

      What? You mean you all didn't know we get paid by the sentence for our forum posts? I always try to use polysyllabic $10 words whenever feasible. Sometimes I have to jam them in. But by gosh, it's so rewarding when that check arrives at the end othe month!

      lol
