Edit: whoa, 500 posts. Cool. Rant (Click to show)
One last thought: it's incredibly ironic that, in a thread about what might be slotted as "alternative" style, people are taking issue with a certain style of writing. And they point to "a lack of substance" as a cover for what is basically an aversion to (a particular) style (of writing). Call it a crutch, call it foggy, call it what you will—that doesn't make it so, and such "criticism" fails to speak, with even the slightest of intelligence, to any specific concern. What I've written about has a clear, concrete aim; this is undeniable. And was my writing understandable? Clearly so. Was it wordy? Yes. Is it pleasing to write like that? For me, yes; but clearly not for everyone. Is it pleasing to read? Again, not for everyone. Until someone simply says "I don't understand this," then I fail to see any glaring issue. (Failure to understand hardly strikes me as a terribly big concern; nothing I've ever written here could be considered incomprehensible.) So what, it could have been written with less words? So the fuck what? If you don't want to bother reading something, then don't read it. Simply pointing to writing that uses ostensibly big words, or lots of semicolons (if you think you've seen a lot of semicolons—and, moreover, if you think you've seen a lot of m-dashes—then go read some Melville), and then calling it "overwrought," or "lacking substance" is like listening to the idiots who complain about e.g. Yohji, Damir, Rick, Raf, Kiryuyrik, Comme, Geller (to a lesser extent), and etc. being "too affected," or "overly stylistic." I don't mean to invite a comparison of the *quality* between writing style and the aforementioned designers and the way their aesthetic manifests in consumers' style; but the moment you extend your distaste to "academic" (what a false—and essentialist—categorical disavowal) writing, you forget the very fact that "style" means more than just how you put some fucking cotton/wool/whateverthefuck on your Aryan skin.

Dude, your writing style (apart from being laden with commas) is just totally innappropriate for the context you're writing in. You want to demonstrate intelligence, great. Stop treating every informal discussion on this forum with the levity of an academic essay.

I genuinely thought you were trolling in the WAYWT thread.

Can the discussion about writing style and the forum clown with his "no, u" comments already leave the thread to relevant discussion and content? Nobody has a problem to understand what thewho tries to bring across and it should really be about his dated opinions rather than the question whether he is talented at expressing them.

It's part of the new American Joe Six-Pack effect. Anyone who uses big words is trying to show that they're better than you. We all need to just be friendly neighbors, no room for the nerds jews "academic illuminati."

I don't think this is that though. Maybe a case of young self-styled intellectuals trying to prove their self-worth by arguing about dumb shit that doesn't matter (myself included).

This is my take on it. It's not that I need or want everything dumbed down, but I think this is a subject that can be discussed without having to create (or CURATE, amirite) posts that read like they should come with a works cited page attached.
