    By that definition, I do believe that everything is effectively intelligible.

    Provided that this statement were true, it would still not be relevant. It has nothing to do with what I'm talking about.

    But I know that this is a personal reason for explaining what you are no longer answering questions. This is at least the second time on this forum I've had some kind of interesting inquiry cut-off as a result of another person's presumptions about what my feelings were.

    When someone has a massive vocabulary, isn't it considered a "dick move" to use large words nearly anytime possible, knowing fair well that you will be confusing the less vocab inclined?

    I think Nocapszy (and a few others) would be guilty of this.

    I call that strategic error and only to one's own dismay, unless your audience is similarly inclined.

    Well, first of all, if that's what you meant, then complexity was not the best choice of words, since one can take a very simple statement to mean many different things (sometimes simple sentences are the worst).

    But I go back to what I just said to Ivy. If simply being able to take something, anything, out of a subject as meaning for myself makes that subject intelligible, then isn't everything intelligible? I can do that with everything, after all.

    This is a HUGE pet peeve of mine.

    I do have a mat, and it is very comfortable. Considering that it's well-supported.

    I doubt that "brilliance" can be considered a "strength" or "realistic" in any arena. "Smart", maybe. Not "brilliance".

    So would I, at least I hope. :/

    Most brilliant people tend to be modest, no?

    And also I would imagine that the more intelligent a person was the more they would be riddled with self-doubt as opposed to self-certainty.

    I could be wrong though.

    This is why people question your T. Not necessarily even based on intelligence, you are adding unnecessary complexity in terms of your emotions and it is VERY easy to manipulate.


    I've learned enough to not get engaged in a lot of pointless arguing trying to "spoon feed" as nocapszy pointed out.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Did you catch the RATHER THAN part? "Taking something, anything out of a subject as meaning for myself" is exactly what I was talking about avoiding. The preferable alternative is getting the meaning the speaker intended to convey.
