It’s things like this that make me momentarily miss reddit. And then I remember how much frakking time vanished into that site. Maybe… maybe just a quick peek… just to see…
reddit is a horrible circlejerk
and these “big word puns” arent really funny
de gustibus non est disputandum…
(I happen to like puns - the more wordplay of any kind you can get into a comment, the better!)
whoa you can use a thesaurus and google translate
it takes like 2 minutes to make your post grammatically correct/verbose this is the future
No, it doesn’t - if you’ve acquired the apposite experience, it is facile to make your scrivenings coruscate with novel vocabulary, with infinitesimal temporal suspension of post submission.
Seriously, I didn’t use any form of translator or thesaurus to get the Latin quote - it’s common enough to be practically English, albeit of the highfalutin’ variety. This is just how I write, much as “it takes like 2 minutes to make your post grammatically correct/verbose this is the future” is how you write. (For more on why you think it takes me two minutes to make my post grammatically correct, see LessWrong on the Typical Mind Fallacy - fascinating stuff!)
communication exists to transfer info
if you want to make art with your words write poetry or a novel
How do you know I’m not?
Also, communication doesn’t only exist to transfer information. Otherwise, we just wouldn’t talk to each other - in my experience, most of what most people say is a kind of conversational filler - and your post would look more like “comms is to transfer inf; art w/ words = poetry/novel”. Part of the art of communication is to make it as easy as possible for the recipient to get the information - and for my part, it’s simply easier to read “proper” text than shortened text.
the filler shouldnt be the majority of the message it should add to the general flow of the sentence
I mean this kindly, @bingHELP : don’t take yourself so seriously. Let us have our fun in discourse. Communication is all fine and dandy, but many of us enjoy seeing something done with sincere enjoyment and/or flair. Don’t let yourself get frustrated by the meaningless chatter. Your clarity and terseness are not mutually exclusive of other people’s verbosity. Part of civil discussion is acceding the rights of style. There’s plenty of room for Strunk and White in professional communication. For back and forth between individuals on the internet, expecting “proper” communications" is just going to drive you mad. (I did that last bit on purpose.)
