58. pitfalls of discussion boards.

i'm a strong liberal and constantly push for effective government in the interests of ordinary americans of all stripes, equal rights, fair play, strong democratic principles and protections for women and minorities, etc.

that's plenty evident if you've read allll my posts here since 2001, but i appreciate that's a tall order....

one hint as to interpreting my own posts is that i tend to be rather precise in my statements (dad was a nuclear physicist, precise statements are in my genes....) if i say an outcome is "likely", i'm *only* making a statement about the odds of it happening vs. not. i'm not saying anything about whether that outcome is my preferred outcome.

i realize not everyone speaks or writes this way and therefore not everyone reads my posts this way. i'll give some thought to trying to minimize ambiguity where possible. not always easy in short posts, but i'll try to keep this in mind....


glad this sub-thread is ending better than they usually do....
