The base point in all of this is that flowery language simply does not
belong in technical documentation. It may have a place in other types of
writing, but not technical writing.

We have strayed off technical writing into a discussion of the nature of
language. Since this is a technical communications list, I think we should
cut this topic off now. Clearly others on the list are sick of this as
well.
