GUEST,Dan BS: Colin Powell finds the 'Smoking Gun' (135* d) RE: BS: Colin Powell finds the 'Smoking Gun' 09 Feb 03


Whoa, yikes, what's this here. I thought that you DIDN'T have a thin skin so there' no harm in constructive criticism about proofreading. We ALL need to do it. When I do it, I delete words, sentences, and reaarange sentences by cut and pasting. The process, mainly making it shorter, has a consequence of improving accuracy. That's the whole point, and nothing more. The "go away" interpretation is unjustified.

I assume you post because you want to be persuasive. You have many interesting points and opinions (I'm embarrassed I hadn't even heard of the depleted uranium issue until you brought it up.) But if you (ANY OF US) fall prey to longwindedness, the message is diluted. Communication is impaired.

I really regret having bothered to go blabbing into this. My apologies. Back to mostly lurking. (And the joke was the dairy joke, sheesh.)
