Or do you think they only have a vague sense of what they want to say and so they stumble through with non-sensical sentences and jibberish?
For example: any of Buz's posts where he strings together multiple alliterative words without actually saying anything.

Re: Problem Reader
Jonesy, if you were just a tad more literate yourself, you could easily read what I was saying and become wiser.
And if you weren't so arrogant and ignorant you'd spend less time trying to sound clever and more time educating yourself on the topics that you're debating.

Re: Irony or bollocks?
The primary problem in this case is not meaningless word salads (though he has a knack for that, too).
Buz frequently suffers from word-of-the-day-itis. He'll discover a new word and use it, usually incorrectly, where ever he can. For example; his use of correlate in this thread.

Re: Irony or bollocks?
Decipher to me how all of the sentences co-relate (correlate) to one another in the first paragraph of Percy's Message 64.
Are you incapable of reading?
Questioning how one sentence co-relates to another in the same paragraph is an incorrect application of the word? Please explain.
Crashfrog answered this. You correlate thing A to thing B (or more), to say:
I'm trying to correlate the first paragraph of your message. Would you please explain it to me so as to correlate the sentences in it?
is using correlate incorrectly.
Quick; what message does he refer to regarding Dr Adequate attempting to understand Buzsaw?
Follow the "This message is a reply to:" links at the bottom of the messages to find out.
