KNOW THE AUDIENCE.
A TW's job is to communicate understandable
information. If the audience fails to
comprehend, the TW failed in the task.
If the audience comprehension level requires
use of cartoons, use cartoons. Remember when
the US military started using comic books?
Unrelated suggestion: Post kudos to list;
send brickbats to personal address ...
in other words, if you agree with me, tell the list;
if I think your opinions are those of a jerk, I'll
tell you privately.

Do not make a statement that cannot easily be
understood on the grounds that in the end it
will be understood (Shammai's opposite)
