Dilbert is a documentary, you know.

I'm unsurprised that you would say that.

No, really. Engineers from various companies contribute their experiences, and if they're funny, Scott Adams uses them in his comic. That's why he's so popular, anyone working in a high tech firm has seen these idiots in action

I'm reasonably sure I already do. Folks who *don't* disagree with me never seem to have problems with understanding my words right off the bat.

It's impossible to write for an audience with a vested interest in not understanding them.

Obama has already proven his actions against the 'rich' are punitive by his "my way or the highway" approach to our current financial issues. This is all about revenge, nothing more and sadly many Americans are on-board. .

Dilbert is unfunny, and the only people who think it's true to life are people who work the crappiest jobs in tech. Once you're past the entry level burger flipping jobs it's clear just how clueless Scott Adams is.

Thanks, I was pretty sure it's not. When I'm not writing on contentious issues this argument is never put forth, even though my style is consistent across content. I get PMs and notes thanking me for providing new insights into subtleties of these ideas and for the clarity and depth of my observations. I'm not saying this to blow my own horn, I'm just a guy like anyone else, nothing special.

But it does highlight the one constant, and that is that these complaints about difficulty with my style always, without a single exception, come from opponents of the ideas I defend.

I didn't have any problem understanding your meaning in that post.

Looked pretty clear and concise to me before I hit send, and after as well.

My fav is being accused of choosing big or unusual words because I think I'm better than other people. This from a fellow who's sure so many other folks need to be told what to do for what he sees as their own good.

After seeing terms like "salubrious", and various Latin phrases being thrown around, I'm not sure why someone would complain about your posts.
