Your originality is startling; tell us, what other wonderful new things do you have to share with us?

Also, why do you think that any slack I cut RJ in any way translates into you?

Jon.

Also, why do you think I give a flying fuck about you "cutting me slack?" Please Jon, you're a tired troll. Go have a nap and come back when you're reenergized.

The irony of you calling me a tired troll is priceless.

Whether you think of me as a troll or not doesn't matter. The fact is this: some people on this forum like me and some people do not; but guaranteed every member of this forum thinks you're a complete douche.

Jon is not a troll. I don't think he's a douche, although he and the g33k seem to be fighting it out to be my b!tch.

Agree. Definitely not a troll. Kwilk is not a troll either. No trolls here. They have their own forum.

If you listed all the violations, just say "all violations of the defendant [are/ as follows/ include]." I don't know why you'd want to tell a judge it's an exhaustive list, but that's your issue. Using "to wit" is the equivalent of wearing a Johnnie Cochran suit to court. "If you use 'to wit,' you're a nitwit." -Johnnie Cochran, 1999.

Yes, hp, you are right, using "to wit" is exactly like wearing a Johnny Cochran suit. But remember, Johnny Cochran had a pretty good record.

EDIT: By the way, I won the motion that the brief was supporting, so there.

Good for you! I'm not saying you can't win if you use the term. I just personally don't like it. Can I borrow your purple suit?

That's why it pays to go to a top 49 law school.

While there is no need to overuse it, synergy is a very useful term to describe how corporate diversification allows firms to save $ or achieve economies of scope. What other synonym would you use to explain this concept of a whole being worth more than the sum of its parts?

He overused it, and it used it not just in the context you mention.
