    In my own eyes, I usually end up sounding like either a pretentious ass or an uneducated hillbilly.....I have difficulty finding that middle ground that seems to come naturally for most people, and I've noticed most people don't feel the need to use so many semi-colons and parantheses.

    I don't generally have trouble understanding what others post, though.

    I don't have problems understanding most forum members' posts. Of the type of post that's likely to trip me up, it would be one similar to Viktor's style. They just come off as being condescending, jeering, tongue-in-cheek, or miss the point completely by dropping hints about what they're really thinking while presenting a false air of omniscience. Shit's infuriating to me, actually.

    I tend to run into the problems of writing too much because I lack conciseness and/or writing too little because the connections between subject matters are crystal clear to me, but not-so-obvious to others. Damn you Ne and being all over the place!

    I try real hard to, I've got a real analytical turn of mind too and try to understand others a lot beyond what is being immediately said.

    Some of the posts on the forum or others are complex, I'm thinking of solitary walker for instance who I've not seen around, or some which appear to have their own internal sequential logic, the attempt to reproduce something that has been said or heard and admired by the poster perfectly for others, some which are a odd and assume certain similar a priori knowledge or consensus on the part of others that there's no reason so assume exists.

    I wish someone would write a book about this.

    I think a lot of forum behaviour is about either appearing funny or clever.
