#1232: Plain language : Durran replies to Nekita

From: Mary Durran <mdurran@colba.net>

I'm sure they're aware there are "average" people on this discussion line,
but that doesn't seem to be the concern of some correspondents.  

What I found less than educated though, was the rude and almost venomous
comments some made about Corbett's call for "plain talk".  This seems to be
the cyber equivalent of accepting an invitation to a party, then rudely
gobbling the canapés offered by the generous host all the while boorishly
insulting his attempts to make sure _all_ the guests are enjoying

Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinions, but there are ways to
express these without making churlish personal attacks.
