Less is More

Geezer, speak little, minimal.
Look, assess, are they still with you?
Yes? Ask if they want a little more.
No? Ask why?
Perhaps you have confused them?
Go back a few steps and try again.
Perhaps you have overloaded them?
Stop there.
Perhaps they are not interested?
Then why did you even start?

Sorry. Thought I would remind myself of the etiquette of conversing in pseudo-code form. You with me now?

pseudo-code has etiquettes! LOL! That's the funniest thing I've heard since Sheikh Faraz Rabbani (of Sunnipath) said he was writing a book of Fiqh on Facebook!

*Fiqh of Facebook!!!

"pseudo-code has etiquettes", no, you joker, conversing has etiquettes. In fairness though, looking back at my previous comment, I see the ambiguity and where your confusion stems from. Perhaps I should have said: "Thought I would remind myself, in pseudo-code form, of the etiquette of conversing." You with me now?

Nothing as complex as you guys - just a humble effort.

Very meaningful advice, my Br. Adil, - perhaps this needs a slightly fuller response in blog post form - where does one draw the line? You with me? (lol)

I can imagine you saying "at the beginning"

Wayfarer!
