Robert, thanks for taking the time to share those thoughts with me. I can
see how it is important at times to avoid language that inflames the
emotions and slows or stops the process of making real progress in
understanding the true nature of a matter. Though I will say that this list
is not a forum as formal as a judged debate.
Without putting words in your mouth, or suggesting anyone use vapid
euphemisms, in fact "cruel" could be replaced by "insensitive" or
"unfeeling", "exploitation" by "utilization" and "poor" by "underemployed"
or "low-income" without loss of information-content and without inflammatory
Have you ever done corporate public relations work or political
speechwriting? lol! I just had to ask.
Doesn't "an insensitive utilization of low-income workers" convey your
meaning perfectly well...
Nope, cruel describes things just right as far as I'm concerned.
...assuming it is NOT your deliberate intention to be oratorically
Being provacative is my intention.
