I had made some posts on this forum regarding a couple of different topics, and a couple times received comments about refering to the "Cliff's Notes" version; I know that bandwidth is expensive, and brevity is considered virtuous, BUT: when I try to write an article or a response I attempt to be as accurate as possible, as well as either showing HOW I arrived at my info, or the logical process for coming to a given conclusion.
I'm very old school, in that I was taught that opinions without a basis are valueless; so if I drag on, I apologise. I try to be as succinct as possible, and still provide a basis for thought and rebuttal.
I don't want to get the nickname "Ol' Windy", but sometimes there is no other way to accurately describe a phenomena, or to show the basis for a given opinion or way of thinking. If I bore the other members of this board, I am sorry, but know no other way.
