Based on the reputation of your nodes you are not doing a very good job. I mean if your "rôle" is "to provide a conduit" (thanks god for online dictionaries including the pompous French-originated words), you should make sure you are being understood! I know that if you spent years in the humanities and French is your other mother's tongue, you got used to a certain vocabulary, but did you consider the fact the the "greater Perl community" includes lots of people whose native language is NOT English? To tell the truth I would not be surprised if even most of the rest had problems understanding your writing.

    There is little to understand.

    Wrap-over a total dismissal of the issues raised in eloquent and high-sounding language, and thus distract from the real message which whittles down to:

    We (I, "on behalf of" all those unnamed, uncounted, and mostly unaware) are right and you are wrong.

    It is the ultimate manifestation of the 'Appeal to Authority fallacy'; by first establishing himself as that authority; thence dismissing all objections on the basis that: as he is that authority, all objections against his judgement must therefore be wrong.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    Yes, board discussions and their rules seem to be very new to him. We all started once...

    Anyway please let this thread die now, it's not in our interest to damage TPF!

    If you're going to get all high and mighty about "pompous French-originated words", then I suggest that you stop using words like "pompous", "reputation", "humanities" and so on. "French" itself is OK though, being of Germanic origin.

      The important difference is the frequency in which the words are used. There's a lot of words of Latin-via-French origin in English. Some of them are used often and are not considered in any way special (until someone ornaments them with accents to show he knows how to make them), some are used either within specific groups or to show intellectual superiority. Maybe Ya'akov did not mean to impress us and this is the way he normally speaks, in either case it hurts what he claims to want to do. Especially combined with his long-winded speeches.
