I received a comment through the contact box this week. In case you haven’t noticed, I shut down the comments after each post some months ago because they were being flooded with robotic spam. Even Captcha couldn’t stem the flow completely. So, if you want to leave a comment, you can reach me through the box in the right hand column that says “contact Cliff.”
This comment was on Post No. 1,301 regarding how many times to think before acting. Confucius said that two was enough. However, my commenter, who edits legal material, pointed out that twice is often not enough when drafting legal prose or other technical writing. Frequently, the second and third draft still needs editing because it still does not say what it is supposed to say or doesn’t say it elegantly or persuasively enough.
