Be Sure To Drink Your Ovaltine...secret handshakes and decoder rings.
Poor little Ralphie from A Christmas Story waited anxiously for his Little Orphan Annie decoder ring...and when he decoded the secret message...
Be sure to drink your Ovaltine he responds with: A crummy commercial. Son of a bit8ch.
And there you go.
BUT, I agree with Tim when it comes to communication overall, I'm with Glenn on this one...because, as one cryptic sob to another...
communications, be they of the ReNtAmeNto r variety or of the SQ1 PictoGrigm of Persuasion kind...
they (these kinds of communiques)...serve a purpose for US.
It isn't about getting YOU to understand...it just ELIMINATES you as a target/prospect and/or potential customer.
Glenn may have a different take...can't or won't speak for him...
but there are certain people I DON'T want as a customer...couldn't pay me enough to have them...
in MY use of messages, when I'm in a forum, which is like being in a bar for deaf people...
you may be "talking" to the whole bar...OR you may just be talking to the two guys in the corner...
EVERY post isn't meant to be a message from A to B...there is NO specific B. Communicating effectively
is more about the WHO you are trying to communicate with...so those general principles that TW talks about simply don't apply.
AND, since this is a business (for the most part) discussion forum...we allow different styels from the Don ALM style
OF ME BEING A GREAT ENTROOPUN OOOR
to my own use of one sentence paragraphs to all the other different styles.
If I'm looking for customers, the ones I want...then I'll use whatever the prospect is most comfortable with or what the lingo, slang or insider words they use to each other...
I don't think, although I don't know, if there are ANY rules that apply...
back to Little Orprah Annie, I think Daddy WarBux is about to reveal the secret of getting rich from supplying the military with tanks that explode all by themselves...be sure to TUNE in...

PS. Some of us even develop our own lingo, like PictoGrigm, PoP, DiaGram of Life, etc.
