It is a very elementary and basic tenet, within both groups, that there are a number of ways to lose your audience, including long-windedness, wordiness, repetition and predictability. While we may not have any such offenders on this forum, I have seen it often in other places. It's just something good to know, if you intend to speak or write. No need to thank me for this tidbit. A public service, like.
