It's almost like people need to be clear about things they say and portray and explain them well, even in just the right way, for others to understand in a manner that they may agree with. It's almost like if you don't do that, people have no choice but to interpret what you put in front of them, in which they may see things differently to some degree, and may disagree with the intended meaning.
Why some can get away with poor etiquette by being vague, while others can't however, is still a mystery...
Who's being vague? There's no name in your post. Who are you even talking about? I don't understand why some posters are allowed to have such poor etiquette being so vague. You really ought to be clear about who you are talking about by spelling out their name.
He literally quotes a message in that tweet.
He's not being vague, he's explicitly referencing that tweet.
The problem in understanding here isn't on Neil. For some reason you are not applying the skills of reading context that you use every time you read or write a response to a quoted message.
Just like every forum poster can infer who you are talking about, you should be able to infer what Neil is talking about considering he literally shared this tweet in exactly the same way that you quoted Hynad's post:
If Neil is being vague, so are you.
Sounds a little like a bad faith counter to me. Lot's of them going around lately though.
And yes, my post was partially vague as it goes much deeper, while making a few related and unrelated points, but is it poor etiquette or 'visionary artistic communication'?
I dunno. Are exotic cars a form of popular travel or not?
It depends on what you want to compare them to.
Are Honda Civics and Minecraft also forms of popular travel and entertainment?
If so, what does that make exotic cars and AAA games?
Not sure what you are trying to imply, but quite possibly the cost of development of a Honda Civic is similar to an exotic car, but for different reasons and perhaps individual models end up being cheaper to design because of the accumulated knowledge. Don't forget that they keep researching on how to make it cheaper to manufacture. Exotic cars are somewhat challenging conventions and most desire it but isn't popular at all. Still have no idea what you are trying to mirror with that.
If AAA games are automatically popular entertainment, then exotic cars are also automatically popular forms of travel/transportation.
I would never say exotic cars are a popular form of travel, based on their sales, compared to something like a Honda Civic.
I would never say TLOU(2) is popular entertainment, based on their sales, compared to something like Minecraft.
It depends on how you want to compare them, or just giving them labels without context.
